So I have this wonderful midwife. She's the same midwife I had for both my other pregnancies and I really like her. I specifically requested her as soon as I got my BFP with this pregnancy, and even though she was out of the country at the time, I saw a different one for my first appointment or two and then she took over when she came back.<br><br>
I don't know if I somehow missed hearing this info before or what, but I saw my backup midwife for today's appointment and she informed me that my midwife is off this weekend. I'm due THIS WEEKEND. Better yet? She's off as of noon tomorrow! Something about vacation time owed or something... So I can either have this baby before noon tomorrow or wait until Monday, or have someone that is very nice, but I hardly know and don't have a connection with show up. None of my 3 options sound appealing! So I'm having a bit of a pout-fest about this.<br><br>
Oh who knows, maybe I will go into labor tonight after all and not have to worry about it.

Oh Boo! I hate this kind of thing. Well, I hope for your sake that you are starting labor now or will hold off till Monday (even though I know QUITE well how much fun it is to be pg past your EDD). I wonder why your midwife never said anything..?<br>
Have your other babes been born around their EDDs?

I feel you! I go to an OB practice with 5 OBs. Mine is amazing, crunchy, handsoff, delivered my last, and I love her. My last DD came at 39w and after being dialated almost 4cm for over a week now, and lots of contrx, we are feeling pretty good she will come during week 38 sometime (who knows). I am only 37w and a few days now. Well, yesterday's appt she tells me she has to be gone 10 days from this Friday until I am like 39.5w.<br><br>
The Dr on call has like a 44% csec rate. Having this babe in a car....bah.

See, things aren't supposed to be this way with our midwife system. I'm supposed to have one primary midwife who I see the most and then I'm supposed to have a visit or two with my secondary and meet the backup if I want.<br><br>
But my primary is definitely not supposed to be off-call when I'm due! argh I'm still ticked about it. Obviously I didn't have the baby yet. I told DH in my rant that we were definitely UC'ing now and he didn't take it so well because it sounded like a "come hell or high water" kind of statement <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I clarified that I'm totally cool with UC'ing again now rather than holding out until Monday.<br>
Oh who knows, I feel nowhere close to going into labor.
