Yeah this. I'm hoping I go to full term and have midwife on hand in background, but am preparing mentally to go UC if they don't send out midwife as has been the case twice in the past. Last two times I went into hospital when midwife refused to come out, so it's my aim to be ready for that scenario this time rather than having to try and adjust to it just before pushing. Have consultant appointment monday and scan to see what looks like is going on in there.
Skipped consultant so far and main scan to look for abnormalities, so slightly anxious about what we'll see, but happy I opted out of extra 'care' to this gestation because it's given me a better state of mind thus far. Here's hoping they don't ruin it for me monday
I am lurking at the UC board and have been intending to ask a question or two there this week. Your query is timely for me
edit: am 28 weeks now and hardly dare to hope will go full term, but wonders and miracles happen!
