Midwife is "dropping" me from care...UPDATED PICTURES....Post 274 - Page 3

post #41 of 289
Good luck sweetie!! I was a VBAC and asked about going "late" right off the bat. My first mw's in an OB office would get push back at 40 weeks and I'd have to do testing, etc. I ended up changing mw's and delivered spontaneously 16 days after my due date.

UC always freaked me out a little because although birth is inherently safe, sometimes problems do happen and I wasn't comfortable ignoring that. My little one got stuck on the way out - shoulder dystocia. Thank GOD I wasn't in a hospital though! Since I had no drugs, they moved me into a different position and reached up and rotated her shoulders and out she came. Then she decided not to breath for the first 5 min or so so they breathed for her - but since her cord was still intact, she got oxygen from me. So I was grateful for not being in a hospital, but very grateful that I still had skilled hands at the ready when needed!

Take heart and good luck!!

I can't wait to hear about your beautiful home birth, mama.

Keep relaxing. Your baby knows the time.

Congrats January. What a relief it must be to have a plan and not have to stress about it.

She was relieved this morning when I talked to her and said that you were still doing well. She was going to try to find an internet access place to check her emails. I know she wishes she could be there with you and take those gorgeous birth pictures that she does.

I am excited for you and hoping that this will happen soon for you so you can enjoy that sweet new baby. I am sure your kids are anxious to meet thier new sibling.
I have 3 1/2 months left till my little one is due and my girls can't stop asking if he is big enough to come out yet. I've tried telling them it will be well after Christmas but that just doesn't seem to suffice at this point.

I'll be praying for you and watching for your labor or birth post.

Could this be labour?

Thinking of you! My HBAC baby was born a long 17 days after my due date. What finally worked for us was not doing the dishes before bed. We had been doing them every night so the mw wouldn't see dirty dishes in the sink. Of course, the one night we didn't do the dishes.......
