Thanks Rosie! I'm excited but a little nervous about the new job. We'll see how it goes!
We just got back from our first appointment with the midwives. It went really well. We spent about two hours talking with a nurse (I'm sure that's par for the course for a first MW appointment, but DH was impressed that she spent so much time with us) about our medical histories, what we hope labor and birth will be like, how they run their practice, etc. Then she did a quick u/s and we saw the baby's heartbeat for the first time. I felt like I was going to cry, but it came out as laughter instead. She couldn't hear it on the Doppler, but it didn't matter since we had just seen it flashing away on the screen. We did decide to do the NT scan, so I'm going in for that on the 12/16. I feel so much better about the pregnancy and my decision to stick with this group of midwives!
Also (and I hesitate to say it because I don't want to jinx anything), I'm feeling a little better. I still don't feel hungry, but food actually tastes good when I put it in my mouth, and I've been eating more. Could this be the beginning of the end of the m/s?
