I'm 37 weeks today.  I just had another ultrasound to check on my previa turned extreme low lying placenta.  At 19 it was a complete previa,  At 27 it was 7mm away.  At 32 it was 8mm away.  And today at 37 weeks it is over 2 cm. 


I had given up on a vaginal delivery.  I had stopped writing my natural birth plan.  I had stopped listening to hypnobabies.  I had stopped hoping.


So what do I do now.  I don't have 5 weeks to listen to the rest of hypnobabies.  I really would like her to be born before the end of the year and I quit researching ways to help my body prepare. 


I have been losing my plug for about 2 weeks,  No bloody show though.  My cervix is soft but still long and closed. 


I guess I can start drinking RRL tea and taking EPO.  This is our first, so I know they tend to go overdue


I'm still in disbelief.

Wow, good for you! 


Don't worry too much about finding ways for your body to prepare. Your body has been preparing itself for this for the past nine months. Good luck!!!

I love what Nova said! Shes right, your body has been preparing.

So now it's back to plan A! That's wonderful!!

Have you read birthing from within? That's a good one and won't take weeks and weeks :)

Try the shortened schedule for Hypnobabies:


I think you should also call them and see what they suggest.  I think you have plenty of time to get something out of it.
