Good for you for letting baby choose their own birthday, Mama! And remember, "post-dates" is over 42 weeks, not 40 weeks, according to the American Congress of Obstetricians & Gynecology. An OB/GYN who pushes for an induction before that without medical cause should be referred to his or her professional guidelines.

Violet Dawn was born 2-13-13 @ 3:16pm.
6 lbs 14oz and 20"


We got home around 6pm last night and she slept awesome last night. She did a 5 hour spell and a 3 hour without my milk even being in. CRAZY!

I was freaking out because we didn't have ANY boy clothes, and I couldn't take back all the girl clothes I had bought. LOL.
Hilarious, Krista!!

Congrats!! I love the name Violet. My last son would've been Violet if he'd been a she.

Re: Feb chat for Feb Mamas!!!

I'm due any day now. (I think the right one is the 13th, official is the 18th). Just waiting. Plenty of cx, no dilation/effacement. That is super normal for me though. I have never been dilated more than "maaaaaaaybe a finger width" before I'm in full fledge labor. So it really could happen anytime despite the dismal dilation.

So I wait... But I too have been googling and youtubing "natural induction methods" and have partaken of many LOL but will never ever ever ever ever do castor oil again. That stuff tastes disgusting and just gives you diarrhea.

Blair, Violet is beautiful! Congratulations!


AFM: I just got home from my dr's appointment. I'm at 3 cm, 70% effaced, baby's at -1 station. So any time now! No contractions yet (well, other than random BH).

Well... I am having flashbacks to my first birth. Pretty sure leaking a ton of fluid. We are getting packed and running a couple errands before heading to the dr. I just hope my chances of having a VBAC are not completely shot.
