Labor was induced with Pitocin, as all of my babies have been. For some reason my body doesn't ever really want to get going into full blown labor. I was 39 weeks, but she was measuring a week further than that.
I was happily surprised when we arrived at the hospital to discover that I was actually already dilated to 4cm. It made the rest of my progression go fairly fast. I got my epidural around 10am, started pushing around 11am.
Because she was a full pound bigger than any of my other babies, it took her a little longer to get to where she was ready to come out... but once she was, she pretty much took care of things on her own. I only had to push once to get her shoulders out!
I love her lovely chubbiness.
So far, she's been a pretty easy-peasy baby. She sleeps most of the time, eats on a 3hr rotation, and puts up with her siblings pestering- er-snuggling her.
