Welcome to your lodge Mandi! Getting you going early since it sounds like your about a month from birth Have a nice weekend!
Congrats on your lodge!
Woah! My first lodge! Thank you! I'm still rooting for at least 4 more weeks but I am only about 2.5 weeks from where I delivered my previous two so anything could happen.
I had an appt on Thursday but there wasn't too much new information since I declined an exam but I'll be getting my GBS test done at my next appt (the 27th) and I assume she'll probably check my cervix at that point too. I had a new midwife at that appointment, and she seemed extra cautious, moreso than my previous one. Not sure if that is a good thing or not, I kind of liked the laid back attitude of my other midwife but I do understand being worried. My 'perfect' birth is not going to happen if I go early again and since this is my last I really want it to be perfect if possible. I did find out at my appointment that our hospital's birth tub is to be installed by the end of December, so I'm crossing my fingers it's in when I give birth, whenever that is (though I can't deliver at my hospital unless I'm 36 weeks, I'll have to go to their 'sister' hospital that has a NICU). My dream birth would be a water birth, I love water and baths and it would just be perfect for me.
I'll have to do an intro later on tonight when my dh is home
