I'm 38 weeks and ready to drop at any second. My midwife stopped by my house yesterday to tell me that my iron isn't high enough and they won't do the homebirth. So she gave me a choice of two hospitals to choose from since apparently that's where I'm stuck having the baby at. One is great but is 40 minutes away, the other is only decent but is right next door. I've tried, and no other midwives want to do a homebirth with me this last minute. I keep entertaining the thought of a uc, and I might possibly go that route depending on how I feel at the time. I have nothing prepared for a hospital birth (no plan, I know nothing about the hospital, nothing packed, no childcare arrangement) and I just don't want to do one again (I did a med free one last time). I'd hate to be another "well I had to have a hospital birth because I was so high risk" statistic when I know that I would be fine having tha baby at home. So I'm cranky and bitter and really upset.
