Had my first appt with a midwife at new midwife/ob practice.
My LMP EDD is 7/5/2012, but my estimate is 7/8 or 7/9 based on my cycle length and CM observation. Midwife tried to do sono to get "accurate" EDD but was having trouble getting consistent measurements so I have to go back next Friday to a different office to have sono-tech do the dating. There is no concern about pregnancy or anything, she is just being cautious since I am VBAC and does not want to cheat me out of a later due date, but doesn't want to make one up since she said going to 44 weeks wouldn't be a good thing.
I'm fine with going back. I had quite a few ultrasounds with my last baby for dating the pregnancy immediately after a miscarriage and then they kept checking her position since she was breech but they heard her heartbeat in a head-down position (if that makes sense).
I'm just annoyed because one of the reasons I was pleased to switch to this practice was because they have evening appointments so I can go after work. The only day/time I can go when the midwife and sono-tech are in the office together is a daytime appt so I have to take a half-day off from work.
Other than that, nothing special. I liked the office support person and the medical tech and the midwife. My diastolic bp was a little high (82) but I was a little anxious and it was really hot in the office.
So I'm somewhere around 8 weeks. I know it doesn't really matter since a due date is just a date. I was sure my edd for baby #1 was 1/15/06 since I was charting temps, but my docs kept it based on my lmp which made it 1/9/06. And wouldn't you know? I went into labor and had baby on 1/6/06 and he was 7lb 1oz, 19 3/4".
