So when I was newly pregnant I was told the odds of my making it to 35 weeks along was 50/50. Then a CNMW told me that I wouldn't see 35 weeks along pregnant. My homebirth midwife, took a risk on me. Told me I needed to make it to 36 weeks for a homebirth. She felt the 50/50 chance was more accurate. She was more comfortable with the fact my 35 week preemie was perfectly fine.
Well guess what I am still pregnant. I hit 38 weeks on Thursday!!!! My gut feeling is I am NOT going into labor this week. So 39 weeks looks so possible for me now.
And now 39 weeks! Do I hear 40? My midwife was taking my blood pressure and told me to relax (it is flirting with #s she doesn't want to see but never crosses the line.) I said I am relaxed I am 39 weeks along. She laughed and said "Won't make it to 35 weeks my foot." :) I loved it!
Of course now I am getting the "How are you still pregnant comments." "When is the OB going to induce?" comments. Gotta love it. I am like hello I am not even full term yet. I have made it to 40 weeks before so maybe I will see that again. Of course at 19 years old 40 weeks seemed like a horrible point to make it to. Now as a more mature mom (35) I think WOW wouldn't that be AWESOME!
