I'm a 36 yr old first time mother, 2 days shy of 36 weeks. I think the baby dropped a few days ago, and since then I've experienced more frequent and longer BH contractions.
I'm planning a homebirth, so I'm really aiming to make it to 37 weeks. I called my midwife this morning. She said she thought dropping was a bit early, but everything else sounded normal, which is how my pregnancy has been so far.
Is anyone else making themselves a little dizzy with worry? My midwife seems to think there's something 'else' emotionally that I haven't resolved. I'm chalking it up to inexperience and normal worries of a first-time mother. On the rare occasion I do call (I've only called twice in my entire pregnancy, including this morning's call), I don't get any warm or reassuring vibes from her, but rather a little impatience and 'what is it now' kind of feeling.
I understand and believe that birth works, and that the likelihood of my baby being okay is in my favor. But sometimes going on faith alone is really hard, and I actually find myself wishing for some intervention, like an ultrasound or an internal exam, just to be sure. Does anyone else feel this way? Any advice?
