I was really really hoping to have this baby by today. My due date is on Friday. My midwife told me a couple weeks ago she now has a conference this week, so basically until I have the baby in June, at this point it will be my back-up midwife... who is OK but I don't have the same rapport with. Also that means that the second midwife attending will be someone I have never met. Legally in Ontario there have to be 2 midwives at every birth.<br><br>
I feel frustrated because I have had some bloody show, I am losing tons of my mucus plug and having lots of BH's... but nothing else. All that really got my hopes up that my primary would be able to deliver Baby M.<br><br>
I am trying to be cool about it because the bottom line is I still get to have a home birth and the secondary is loved by lots of people. Still seeing as this will be my last child I was really hoping for everything to go the way I wanted it to.<br><br>
Thanks for listening.

(((((hugs)))))) that stinks mama. It's ok to be disappointed. You may still be pregnant until next week. If not I wish you the very best birth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> in circumstances not quite of your choosing.

Sorry about your disappointing news <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It is hard to adjust to "someone new" at such a personal, emotional time as birth. Not that I want you to be overdue and uncomfortable, but maybe your LO will hang out and wait another week. It's not *that* long in the scheme of things (Im learning this myself since Im 41+1 today) and maybe LO will be able to feel these vibes from you that it is not quite yet the optimal time to come.<br>
At least your homebirth is still on, even if not with the MW of your choice. That in itself is a great thing!! You can still own this birth experience and make it be all that you want it to be!!I am sure the other MW will bring her own special brand of magick with her and even if she is not "the one", she will do her best to follow your wishes.<br>
Wishing you the best!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
