Woohooo! That is awesome! Every labor can be different!
Might I suggest you have a backup plan in case you don't make it to the hospital? Do you know of a midwife who would come check on you and baby so if you had it at home you wouldn't have to go in to the hospital?
That is what I hope for if I ever have another one...
No midwife in our area. This practice is transferring my care to another dr ofc at 36 wks. I wish I could have the baby at home but from what I have been told before they make the baby stay in isolation for 24hrs at the hospital (I would want him checked because our children have all had ABO Incompatibility and 3 required being under lights. I do know how to check myself (TMI sorry!) so I am hoping that all will go well with this one and I can manage at home for most of it.
Also, our pedi is not on board with me not having our son checked out in the hospital and I would not want to take him to his ofc shortly after birth. He also doesn't do home visits. We live in a tourist area and medical care for OB is so far behind the times...like 20 yrs!
