I got to hear one today... my baby's. Yep, if you haven't already heard, I am pregnant! 11 weeks and 3 days.
Things are going to be so different this time. We have a midwife rather than an OB. Her name is Carey Collins and she's finishing up her apprenticeship (in late 2009/early 2010) with Labors of Love in Spartanburg. I met Carey months ago, and it is so cool to already know my midwife. With Carey I can call and get her on the phone and not a secretary or nurse line answering machine. Also, she's right here in the Anderson area so I feel confident she will get here in plenty of time once I am in labor. This is another one of the things babywearing meetings have done for me, because I probably never would've met Carey otherwise. I probably wouldn't be having this baby at home, either, because I ignorantly thought only crazy hippies did that until I met some really cool women who had done it.
There are so many things I want to blog about right now, I don't know where to start. Carey and her supervising midwife, Linda Weaver, came over last week and answered a million questions for Jordan, me and my mom. (They do this initial visit for free, by the way, so you can make an educated choice without money being an issue. How many times has an OB offered to do that for ya?) I'd like to do some posts about that interview, and also about a conversation I had recently with an OB.
I don't feel like talking about it now, though. I think I'm just going to put up a cute little pregnancy ticker and then hang out with my family and watch a movie. Good night!
