hey everyone. i know i'm kind of joining in a little late, but since i've posted a few things already...
EDD: August 4
Age: 20, will be 21 when baby comes
Location: West Central Texas right now, will be Hampton/Newport News, VA area a couple months before EDD
How long it took you to get you BFP: (what is BFP) we weren't trying, if i understand correctly
What number child is this for you: number 1
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): just DH of1.5 years
Birth plans/preferences: i want a birthing center water birth with a CNM, but the insurance won't cover that. I have to go to the military hospital (which doesn't support water birth) or a civilian hospital, if the military one can't take me.
Anything else you'd like to share: I really hate some of the military medical policies regarding birthing, especially in the area that i'm going to be in. I'm really tempted to have a home birth, but then i'm sure the insurance and everyone @ the hospital will get mad at me and in turn give me a headache. i do have rights that i'm looking forward to enforcing. I'm scared since this is our first and my mother was a Labor and Delivery nurse (she made me promise that she could be at all of our kid's births), so i know of some things that could happen and she knows more. As most of you probably figured out, I'm a military wife. it's good for the most part, just wish there were more options regarding childbirth. I'm sure i'll complain about one thing or another thoughout my DH's career.
