She had to cancel monday due to bad weather so is coming tomorrow
I think baby will be here soon. I checked myself monday and cervix is very low (like I get up to my middle knuckle and there's her head) and at least a loose 3 cms. I see my backup CNM tomorrow as well so may ask her to check me to collaborate my findings.
So exciting! I still have 4 weeks until my 36 week home visit - haven't gotten anything done towards birthing area(s) but I am starting to work on it now. My kids have all come on their due dates so I am banking on that...famous last words?
I had my last appt with the CNM yesterday (my backup incase i went too early) and had her check me. I'm 3cm's, 70% effaced and 0 station.
CPM was happy with the birth setup. I asked her what would happen if I went into labor this weekend and she said as long as I'm comfortable with homebirth before 37 weeks, she is too. Heck yeah, i am Not going to that hosp unless there's a medical need! So I'm officially cleared for homebirth That's a huge weight off my shoulders!
Inflating the pool today and going out for what last minute supplies we need. My body wants her out yesterday (horrible SPD and sciatic nerve pain right now) but I do hope she stays in until she's fully ready to be born, whether that be today or 3 weeks (preferably not 3 weeks lol). I walk around like i just rode a horse for hours, quite a funny sight!
Got the birth pool inflated last night Only thing left to do is wash up towels but that's a daily thing anyway in this 10 person household lol. I'm 6' tall with very long legs and can surprisingly stretch my legs completely out when sitting in this pool!! Also the ledge is at shoulder level when I sit. Going to be very comfy
Lol its actually supposed to be a family room, but the kids took over the rest of the house so we made it our room. Its a good thing though because no way that pool would have fit in any of the bedrooms with our king size bed!
