I'm 38 weeks today and booked in for induction at exactly 40 weeks (15th Feb). But have had a LOT of symptoms and signs that baby will be coming very soon. Have been having contractions all weekend long, lost a lot of my plug on Saturday and have been dribbling fluid for days. But I have been keeping my knees together because my mother is supposed to fly tonight out of Pennsylvania to the UK to stay with me for the month so she can be here to see her grandson born. I've been looking forward to this for MONTHS, and now, at the last minute, severe weather has hit where she's at, and I've just seen her first flight is cancelled. She is supposed to be taking THREE flights to get here, and with the first one cancelled, she can't get here. I want my mommy SO much, and I'm completely gutted that she's not going to be here tomorrow after all. She warned me yesterday that they were in for severe weather, so I was watching the live departure boards all night, and they've cancelled ALL flights to her first destination, and she's got no other way to get there to catch the other flights. I'm not only worried about her getting here (I am hoping she can reschedule for a couple days time), but also that the baby will come before she makes it. We've been planning for YEARS for her to be with me when I give birth, and I'm so upset that it might not happen now. Sorry, but I just had to vent. I feel so helpless and alone. My partner and I are both American, and neither of us have any family or friends around, so I've gone through the whole pregnancy alone. Just want SOMEONE around with me when it's my time.
