Anyway, I thought that on uneventful days like this, since I didn't start this blog until I was already more than 6 months pregnant that I'd try to recall some of the goings-on from earlier in my pregnancy.
I'll start with my first midwife appointment. Numerous friends had touted the benefits of seeing a midwife over an OB, and I was persuaded. I called and we scheduled my first appointment for when I was seven weeks pregnant in late October. We spent most of the appointment chatting about pregnancy, birth, and what I should expect. It was really nice. I was surprised that there was no ultrasound equipment in the office, so I didn't have an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy at that time. She also said that my uterus was tipped, so she wouldn't have been able to find a heartbeat that early either. But everything else seemed normal and regular, and I certainly wasn't worried. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I wasn't able to make my next appointment until the beginning of December, but that didn't seem to be a problem. I really liked how laid back everybody was, yet still exuding extreme competence.
(Of course we all know what happened in December.....ha!)
