Baby arrived yesterday morning, 14 days overdue. He was born at 4:57am, 9lbs 2oz. Mama did end up with an epidural, but managed to push baby out. No one thought she would be able do because of the position of baby. She's pretty proud of herself. Baby and Mama are doing really well.
She went in to talk to the OB, had her hubby and midwife with her. She left the hospital with cervadil in place. She was to go back this morning, for round 2. If no sign of labor tomorrow morning, she will get oxytocin, and if that fails, then they will C/S. She will be 42 weeks Friday and won't let her go past that. I'm hoping everything goes smoothly. I haven't heard anything today. I'm also glad she has a midwife on her side to help her make informed decisions and fight for her needs and wants. Thanks for the advice ladies. I'll update when baby is here.
My friend was hoping for a mostly natural childbirth. She is 10 days overdue. She went for a check up today with her midwife. Baby has not engaged at all. She hasn't dialated at all. She is meeting with an OB tomorrow to get their opinion. Right now looks like a 50/50 chance of induction or c/s. She's putting on a brave face but I bet inside she's pretty scared. Its her first baby. Any positive thoughs would be appreciated. Thanks.
