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.

Ugh, stop it! The picture is too much! I hate pregnancy, but it's making me miss being pregnant with my daughter :x Too cute! Oliver is a good name choice, too. I hope you have a great home birth! For some reason I didn't realise you were pregnant again, congratulations. My BG creeping is seriously lacking since having my second. :lol:

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.

I get that! I wanted a home birth for my daughter, but there are no midwives in the town I live (Cold Lake). It 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?)

They don't! A friend of a friend is finishing up her final year of midwifery in Calgary, and she is moving to Bonnyville to be the "local" midwife... But as of right now, we have no one. The doctor I had to deliver my daughter stopped delivering babies, 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.

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.
