    I'm a little late chiming in but welcome to your lodge, glad your PUPPP rash is clearing up. Also, I love the henna art very cool.

    So glad your rash is getting under control. Hopefully LO can bake until you get things figured out with a new HB MW.

    You have been through so much with this pregnancy and still have been able to be a major support person on our Aug BB. You are an amazing, strong woman that deserves an amazing HB!!

    Update 08/07/08

    So the scoop is, I saw my exMW's backup doc yesterday, and she confirmed I am still a go for HB! AND, we discussed my dates again and she decided that I am 37 weeks TODAY, which makes me ok to give birth at home anytime!



    She didn't even bother testing me for choleostasis, which is what my exMW was afraid of (what the heck was with my exMW?)! I made an appointment on Monday with a new HB MW and Friday was the earliest she could see me.

    However, since last night, I have been having contractions every time I stand up and I've been cramping for the last three days pretty often, and sleeping more than ever thank goodness. I didn't tell doc yesterday about cramps because I didn't want her checking me to send me into labor before we could set up HB MW. What a fuss! I lie down whenever I can since that seems to stop the cx.

    So the potential new MW was able to see us this afternoon at 4 for our initial consultation. She's delivered thousands of babes and I keep hearing really good things about her.

    Baby has been moving busily all day, and I am timing cx as they occur. When I stay upright, they tend to be about 2 min on, 5 min off. Nothing painful, just pressure. I'll have potential new MW check me for dilation and effacement today.

    update

    We can't afford it. With exMW, we were on a payment plan. We would need $5,000 up front, which we don't have, for a new HB MW.

    The emotional breakdown that came with this back and forthing is brutal and exhausting.

    HOWEVER, the MW I spoke with today is wiling to be my doula at the hospital. She was pretty outraged at the treatment I received from exMW abandoning me so late in the game.

    She's a MW with 40yrs of experience and will keep me laboring at home as long as possible, checking me for when we have to go, then staying with me the whole time at the hospital and taking care of me in every way except for the legal requirement of a doc catching the baby at the end.

    I know I can do this, I just feel like this entire pg has been one emotional/physical nightmare after another. To say I want it over is an understatement.
