So the reality of my situation is finally hitting me. Tomorrow, if baby is -1 or lower, she will break my water and we can try a homebirth. Higher than -1, and I get transferred to the hospital. ...

Re: What Would You Do???

By my LMP my due date is the 13th. By "modified" LMP it's the 16th. By the first ultrasound my midwife did at 13 weeks, it's the 18th, and my first ultrasound which was done at a pregnancy center...
