My midwife can officially attend my birth in the 2nd half of the 35th week, which is super nice (thank you Oregon). I'm not intending to have a baby early, but it's just crazy to think how close the actual OK time for the baby to come out is!!
We are trying to get everything in order since I have been having preterm labor symptoms since 26ish weeks and they are taking me off the Nifedipine at 35 weeks. I know that there is still a good chance that I could make it to my due date or later, but I am such a planner that I just need to have things ready.
I think reality all sunk in today when I made the rest of my appointments at my birth center.
and got told that since we got rid of our insurance and switched to self pay that we have to pay $1140 by the 37th week :
But we are so close!! exciting!
Elijah Mercury (7/2009), TTC #2 with my new soon to be DH! Tattooed, 29 year old cancer survivor!
The dry erase board on my fridge (which I update every Wednesday when I "graduate" to the next week) currently says:
*4* weeks 'til term!
*8* weeks 'til EDD!
*11* weeks at most!
I like having the date range like that to keep me on my toes but not get my too anxious too soon We'll all be birthing babies before we know it, though!!!
Lauren - mom to Lolli (09/23/07) and Poppy (07/21/09) and Ozzie (05/26/12)
My standard line now is that I'm very ready to not be pregnant any more. . . but not really ready to be responsible for 3 kids.
