my mw agreed to break my waters yesterday (40w4d) at 11:40. I had originally not wanted any intervention, but was ready to get things started. I was 5cm/90% and -1. I was worried that a AROM would lead to a long slow labor, but boy was I wrong. The contractions started immediately and without breaks. I had the urge to push not even two hours later. Sophia was born at 2:31, 7lb 14 oz, 20.5 inches. She came out crying and her head is not even scrunched.

I just wanted to thank all the moms on this forum. I have reading posts/discussions since March and it really helped me get through this pregnancy. You are all beautiful and wonderful women.
