<div style="font-style:italic;">my midwife says 37 weeks, but if it is a few days before that she'd come too.</div>
i dont think i am at risk of delivering early but you never know with my first i had a scheduled ceserean but my water broke two day past my due date and four days before my scheduled ceserean but my ob never let me labor and went ahead with the ceserean i never contracted i imagine due to the fact that the bone head had me on procardia for high bp which now has come to my attention that this drug is used to prevent contraction in ptl and i was never taken off of it I suppose this was his plan so i wouldnt go in to labor before my scheduled ceserean which was scheduled because he felt that my DD was too big to fit through my vagina needless to say i no longer see him, and i still have alot of resentment towards him CANT YOU TELL<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
But my midwife said i dont really have any labor pattern to go by because i was never given the chance from the meds<br>
i just thought i would ask because i feel like this babe is running out of room at almost 35 weeks (thursday) and i have had a ton of cramping almost the whole pregnancy so far. ofcourse we are hoping to go to atleast 38 weeks , keep your fingers crossed for us, you never know i could go to 42 weeks too.
I haven't found a hb midwife who will take me due to chronic htn, but I've had babies at 36 wks and 34 wks at the hospital. All 3 were fine and came home. My 33 weeker would have done better at home - she was a c/s. They wisked her away (to the regular nursery) and wouldn't let me hold her at all. Then they said she was breathing too fast and took her to the NICU for antibiotics while we waited for blood cultures to come back. Ugh. She was fine and some kangaroo care probably would have perked her right up.
