Baby arrival!!!

Hi I wanted to let everyone know that I had my baby yesterday afternoon. My husband and I had a healthy beautiful baby girl, weighting in at 8lbs 13 oz. My due date was March 2nd. I got induce  on Feb. 23 because she was full term at 39 weeks and I was already dilated 4 centimetres for a month and my cervix was also 80% effaced. It was a lot of hard work but it was totally worth it.

@cherryberry12 When they induce you they will give you medicine to start your contractions. After your contractions start your water have to break.I was in labor for 16 hours hopefully, you won't have to be in labor that long. Good luck! I hope everything goes well for you.
