My baby was born Tuesday. Elizabeth Paige, our 3rd daughter was born at 4:41 pm. She was 9 lbs 5.8oz and 21 inches long.
I was induced with Cervadil on Monday night. It did a nice job on my cervix. My MW broke my water at 1:15 on Tuesday afternoon. From there, my ctx were 2-3 minutes apart. I labored all over my birth room and in the birth tub. She was born on land though.
I did have the natural birth that I had been planning. It was MUCH more difficult than I imagined, but I am so glad that I did it. Even with all of my "high riskness", my only medical interventions were the cervadil and AROM... I didin;t even have to have an IV or pitocin!
Elizabeth is beautiful, well loved by her sisters, and nursing like a champ!
