actually the true range of normal is 38-42 weeks (and yes, 41w1d for 1st timers). i'm so glad you are going to get a doula! check in your tribe here and i bet you can find some names. i think michigan is pretty good in their birthing laws so it would definitely be worth calling the birth centers and asking if they accept medicaid. good job doing everything you can to get the birthing experience you want!!
send andysqueen a pm to get on the facebook group, come join us! we just moved a little early. hopefuljoy, what a lovely story! i can't see your pics, but i love the one at the end of your story with tired parents and a brand new tiny baby, wonderful!!! come join us!

Very scary! I'm glad you are okay!!!!
definitely, not full time though
yes it's a long time but def doesn't mean any thing is wrong!  i've had that for my last 2 pregnancies and i totally understand that it's frustrating!  i'd wait until tues am for castor oil.  give the acupuncture a chance 1st.   then i'd check out what ina may says in guide to childbirth.  i hear a shake or smootie is good as is cooking it with scrambled eggs, well, as good as castor oil can be i guess!  good luck!  hopefully babe is here before you have a chance to try...
