My midwife let me know at one of my last appointments that she won't let me home birth if I'm 36 weeks. I never really got clarification if 36+1 was good, or if I needed to be a full 37 weeks for it to be okay. I'm guessing 37, but I'm not really concerned about it at this point.
Another lady at DD's dance class made a comment like "Oh, you're so close to 34 weeks! I always felt better once I hit 34 weeks, because I knew that I was full term and the doctors would be okay with me going into labor!" She seemed really surprised that my midwife would want to wait past 36 weeks.
So, just curious, how far along does everyone's providers want you to be before they'll admit or attend to you in a "normal" fashion?
