i'm quite suprised that your not seeing your midwife again until you are 40weeks!! i am 39 weeks pregnant, i saw my midwife this morning, it was just a routine check up, blood pressure, listening in to baby's heart beat, and feeling baby for position etc.
she has arranged to come and see me again next week at my house to go through the birth plan, like yourself i think this is a bit late, as i will then be 40 weeks and could go into labour before then!
there is a page in your maternity notes devoted to birth plan, which has space for notes, so i guess you could fill this out yourself and clearly state on there that you would like a water birth, and then if you haven't had the baby sooner you could go over what you've wrote with your midwife when you see her at 40 weeks.
take care, i wish you all the best.
