After 42 weeks and 1 day, it's a...

girl! I was induced at 8 am after coming in at 4 cm, 60% effaced, and -1 station. I received a bishop score of 9.  They broke my water at 11 am, and I was able to labor on the ball and floor until about noon. I hit transition hard , but never asked for pain meds. I pushed starting at 1 pm, and I had Felicity Catherine at 2:15.  The most difficult part for me was stitching a number of wicked tears. Our wee one was 9 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches long. We've had a little trouble nursing but nothing insurmountable. Good luck to all the mothers-to-be, and especially those overdue. You can do it!
