12 days past my due date I woke up to some "painful" contractions (Tuesday the 28th around 7 am) and they stayed pretty steady all day (every 5 minutes) I spent most of the day pacing the house, in and out of the pool, watching movies, and trying to relax. By midnight I was exhausted and sad that things weren't progressing faster so I started pushing with contractions to see if I could get things going. Our third baby girl slid earthside at 1:39 am on the 29th. She weighed 9lbs 5 oz and is 19" long. My largest baby and longest birth. We are still on cloud nine and haven't slept much since she was born. I will post more later! Just wanted to reassure all of the overdue ladies that the end is near!!!!

Congratulations!  I hope you are enjoying every moment of snuggling with that precious little bean.
