When we took a birthing class last week the birthing coach from our hospital said to us "if you go into labour after 35 weeks we will not halt your labour." Fair enough, but it got me thinking.... all this time the doctors have been telling me that as a first time mom I'm most likely to delivery after my due date. They even went so far as to schedule a PREnatal doctors visit one week after my due date "just in case I go over." Suddenly the idea that I'm 3 wks away from due date has sent me into a panic. I'm having sleepless nights thinking that I could wake up with contractions. I really don't feel ready to go into labour yet!! Is it likely that it can happen? Can I prevent it? Sorry for the rant but I'm freaking out.
