I'm really chatty about myself today. Feeling a little self-centered :LOL

I feel like a bit of a dork admitting this, but I still have my + HPT. Tomorrow, I'm going to burn it or destroy it or otherwise get rid of it (did this in my last pg, too)... symbolizes to me that I'm ready to give birth....

I just started week 34, so I'm still on visits every two weeks. Last one went well. We talked about getting the group B strep test (or not) at my 37 week visit. I need to research it a bit more, but I'm leaning toward having it. My next visit is next Friday, April 30 and since my mom will be in town, I'm taking her with me! She's been a bit concerned about the homebirth, so I'm hoping if she meets my mw, she might feel a bit better about things.

Re the Vit K...We choise not to do it with Ds and were not going to do it with this baby either...but, When talking to our midwife she suggested we do it...she said she used to be of the mind that it is the parent's choice and she would not push one way or the other (she really doesn't on most things) but she had an experience about a year ago with one of her clients that has led her to advocate for the shot, although she will support whatever decision the parents make. She had a client whose son was born beautifully, no brusing (I actually said the same thing, "well I'd do it if the birth were traumatic or there was visible bruising") no trauma...then about 6 weeks later internal bleeding and he died.

I have had tons of BH in the last week, very low down that feel kinda like menstrual cramps. I *think it's the cervix ripening/dilating kind (my mw said something to that effect) so I decided to go ahead and get checked. We'll see.

... i thought jewish people wait 2 weeks to circumcise when there was no vit k given, to prevent bleeding ...

And the abbreviations kind of confuse me: I've seen dd, dh, and all sorts of stuff

on the vaginal exams: my mw's usually don't check until at least 38 weeks, but i'm thinking about not having any at all. any other mamas here who say "no" entirely and wait until they go in labor?
