Great work JustJenny! Thanks for sharing the story.
I lost my first bit of plug today! 37.5. Exciting! I figure i will go to 40 weeks, but nice to see something that might mean progress. I cannot reach my cervix to save my life, so no clue how things are going. Hopefully leaving the EPO as high as i can get it is good enough?
Cwill. Agreed. Trim it all! Nothing worse than hairy bloody bits. Oh well. We must be in the minority?

I don't think it is too long. Seems perfect to me. I Might add 3rd stage placenta management preferences. A shot of Pit is usual in some places to prevent bleeding and deliver the placenta quickly. I would directly address post-partum baby care; vit K shot, Hep B and eye drops are (i think) all standard, unless you specify. My BC MW has already asked about those preferences and requested that we put them in a birth plan. Unless that is on your purple sheet already. I...
