My main concern about having another home birth is having a birth in which the chord begins to come out first. I have been told by my doctor that this is a life threatening situation which needs immediate ceasarian intervention. What is the midwife's approach to this situation?

I'm 36 weeks pregnant with my second child. I've been having tightenings and a lot of pushing down pressure where I feel like my body is pushing on its own. Is this Braxton Hicks or is this early labor?
My last period was almost seven weeks ago but I have had negative pregnancy tests. I feel like my uterus is enlarged. Is this serious and should I have it checked out?
Yesterday I woke up to find a moderate amount of brown spotting when I went to the bathroom. I was not cramping or having any other complications just the spotting. I decided to go to the MD to see what they thought it could be.
My last period was January 10th. On February 20th I finally got a positive pregnancy test after having nausea, breast tenderness and mild cramping for two weeks.
I just had my second child 2 1/2 months ago. I went in and had my tubes tied a few weeks ago. I just took a pregnancy test because I missed my cycle. It came back positive. Should I make an appointment right away with my doctor?
I am 25, never missed a period unless I was pregnant. I could of gotten pregnant at many points this month. I took out my paraguard on the 13th *no horomones) my uterus feels like a lump now like there is something in it. since this is my second baby I heard thats normal.
I thought with my second I wouldn't be so parinoid and worried! Needless tosay last week on Jan 21st I took a at home pregnancy test and it was positive as well was the one the morning of the 22nd. I am excited to have another child could feel more blessed. My breast hurt but that has gone, I did have a very tiny smug of blood on the 23rd evening but it wasn't much.
I just found out im six weeks pregnant im28 am im too old to carry a baby I havent been pregnant in six tears
I've been trying to get pregnant for around seven months now and I'm still not pregnant. We have had unprotected sex every other day. My period was 3 weeks late last month. When it started, it lasted only three days.
