Second Appointment...

So I went in for my second appointment, but it was a little more like a first because I found a new midwife that will cost half of what the other place did.. Yay!! It was a pretty basic appointment. Lots of information about the new birthing center, a quick tour, and then I gave an um... "sample" and weighed myself (116... Gasp!!) and it was on to blood pressure and temperature check (all was normal). Then it was time to find the heartbeat. Anyone who has spoken to me recently knows that before every appointment (or at least these 2) I start to get this thought, "what if they can't find the heartbeat??" It doesn't give me super anxiety or anything, but it is always in the back of my mind. So my midwife had a girl who is from Kansas studying midwifery in Utah do a lot of the general stuff while she went over paperwork with me (i.e. blood pressure, temp..) and then she asked if this girl wanted to find the heartbeat. So I am lying there, and no joke, this girl tried for 5 minutes without finding ANYTHING! So needless to say there was a small part of me that was like, oh great... here it comes... But neither one of them seemed super concerned. After awhile the girl gave up, and handed the doppler to my midwife and she found it, no problem!! Whew!!! So all in all everything looks good, and I am scheduled for my next appointment January 6th!!

YAY! I am so excited for you that you get to deliver with a midwife! I so want a homebirth but it's just waaaay too expensive out here. Much more affordable in Utah.

Glad everything is going well!
