    I know I am only 3 weeks away but the fact that I am doing my Birth Plan with my MW tomorrow makes it seem SOOOO real!

    I don't even know where to start.

    If your materity notes are anythign like mine theres a birth plan section, you can always have a read through it before you go
    Its quite basic stuff and your midwife will go through everything with you
