I don't want to go to the hospital!!!!
I've just about risked out on my midwife's care. I actually have two of them who both work at a birth center. They only risk out due to laws (like high bp readings), or when they have a gut feeling that something isn't right and they want an OB's opinion. My primary midwife said that usually, when she has a gut feeling something is off, it usually is. They've been running a bunch of tests, and the last BPP showed that baby was okay. That was last Thursday. But my kidneys are getting worse and worse, and they want me to have this baby before the weekend or they're wanting to send me to an OB, who will probably induce. My midwives are trying to induce naturally, using methods that only work when your body is ready, but nothing is working. I'd rather have a longer labor at the birth center with them, rather than an induction at a hospital.
I'm taking lots of EPO, done chiropractic and acupuncture, drinking the RLT, and using some herbs off an on whenever I go in to see them. Sex isn't an option since my husband is recovering from surgery.
Is there anything else I can do? I'm officially at 39+3 today, although based on the day I ovulated I'm due in two days. I had my first baby at 39+4.
