I'm here. Due Saturday, not that I think I'll be having him then, but I am hoping for sometime in the 40th week. Although I've accepted it could be 42 weeks. Now if I get to 42 weeks, and still no baby, I might be crying! DD was born at 41+1 so hopefully this little guy will be the same or earlier.

I will definitely be sharing my birth story here, as long as all goes as planned. I was so sad when I couldn't share DD's story here. I don't have a belly pic, but I want to take one this week, so if I remember I'll come back and post it. I just saw a friend who is 28 weeks pregnant, and she has a bigger belly than me! My midwife said I just hold him in or something!

It sounds like you have a great birth team and plan in place, so I have full confidence you will succeed at your goal of a NCB! But even if you don't, please come back and share your birth story! Every birth is worth celebrating, even when they don't go as planned I'm excited for you!!

Yay! Can't wait to hear the news! I'd love to hear your birth story even if things turn out differently than you plan

I love birth stories...whether they go as planned or totally different. Sometimes I even enjoy the triumphs of "less than perfect" births more than the simple beauty of a birth that goes exactly as planned.

But I will think good thoughts for yours to go just how you want it to And that he doesn't wait until last 42 weeks. Only for your sanity. Lol.

I'm due in 17 days! Which feels unbelievable. I'm feeling all kinds of emotions. I was feeling very nervous about labor and birth, mostly because I've never experienced it before...but, I decided to have my cervix checked yesterday at my 37 week appointment (due to spotting), and it turns out I'm already 3cm and 50% effaced! I feel very confident in my birthing abilities now, although I'm aware I could stay at 3cm for quite some time. I won't say it's the only reason it happened, but I will say that EPO definitely helped out!

3 cm is great! I keep telling myself that every uncomfortable contraction I've been having is hopefully dilating me just a tiny bit more so that hopefully when labor really hits I'll be at 4 or 5cm! Wishful thinking maybe, but we'll see
