34 weeks today! OMFG I'm starting to get so anxious.
I was 2cm dilated at my 33 week appt, losing small amounts of plug daily, Large amount yesterday. I don't think he's coming anytime soon but this has by far been the scariest pregnancy as far as pre-term signs. Tons of contractions daily to go along with everything else but they always get irregular and go away after a few hours.

Quoting Spacetits:" That does seem like forever. :shock: But october is almost here, that's exciting 8)"

It's nice to say he will be here NEXT MONTH! Does not seem real what so ever. I have to keep him in another 3 weeks though. I really don't want to have the nicu team at my house. I just want a quiet non-commotion home birth.

Quoting Spacetits:" I get that! I wanted a home birth for my daughter, but there are no midwives in the town I live (Cold ... [snip!] ... is the most depressing thing ever, especially since most of my friends have to travel to Edmonton to experience a "home" birth."


WHAT?!
Bonnyville has midwives and it's a TON smaller than cold lake (30 mins away, maybe midwifes would be willing to travel those 30 mins for the birth?)

Quoting Spacetits:" They don't! A friend of a friend is finishing up her final year of midwifery in Calgary, and she is ... [snip!] ... and she was GREAT. Oh, and the 2 male OBs in Cold Lake delay cord clamping now... Apparently it's "standard practice." :shock:"


Oh nevermind, She moved to Regina. oops.



Delayed cord clamping is a good thing, The cord is supposed to stop pulsating so all the blood possible can get into the baby before clamping.

Quoting Spacetits:" Yeah, I know. :lol: I delayed both of my kids clamping. They never did that before, one of the OBs laughed at my friend when she requested it."

oh lol, I thought you were saying it like it was a bad thing.. damn emotionless words :-P



That's insane! I had both boys delayed. This time it will be so delayed, They wait till you are getting ready to deliver the placenta. Oh and I get to hold him (if I want) while I deliver the placenta. I can hang out in the water with him as long as I want. They stay here for 4 hours after he is born and don't weigh or anything (unless there is a problem) until they are getting ready to walk out of the door. They let us bond with him and try to nurse him during those 4 hours, So Joe and the boys will have him while i'm getting cleaned up, then I go to my bed while the midwives clean everything up and make me a meal :-)

Quoting Spacetits:" I rushed everything, I just wanted out of the hospital. Their policy is 24 hours, but every time a nurse ... [snip!] ... want out of here. Get me a doctor, we're fine." :lol: So I stayed in the hospital for 9 hours? give or take. I had her at 6pm."

Thats awesome!
We left 17 hours after delivery both times.
