We did induce at 39 weeks - those 140 BP readings were becoming more and more frequent. I think my body was almost ready anyway, since I went into labor with just the Cervidil. SO happy to have avoided Pitocin this time! This, along with having hired a birth doula and using her coping techniques, allowed me to have a fast, easy, and unmedicated childbirth. I went from 5.5 cm to fully dilated in one hour, and pushed for five minutes. It was just wonderful, everything was perfect. What a difference from the PE birth of my first daughter, magnesium/Pitocin/epidural/hours of pushing.
In any case, our daughter Lillian Maria is here. She was born at 9:30 on 7/16 and weighed a whopping 7 lbs 4 oz.

I'll only have it public for a week or so, so sorry if anyone can't see it afterwards.
All the best to all of you on the boards!
