my important dates:
12/12 (today!) orientation seminar at the birth center
12/15 first visit & ultrasound with CNM in ob/gyn office
1/10 first visit at birth center
i have the day off work and have made a few phone calls i can't make when i'm at work. i talked to my insurance to find out about home birth coverage - they cover in-network CNM's only, and i'm not sure there are any in-network (the rep is going to try to find out and get back to me). and i called the birth center (in bryn mawr, PA) to find out about becoming a patient. they had an opening tonight for their required orientation seminar, so i decided we might as well get it out of the way. and i made my first appointment with them as well.
so now my day is going to be looooong and involve so much driving (we don't own a car but use a car-sharing service, so i haven't driven in awhile), since in addition to going to the birth center tonight, we also need to go to whole foods for groceries & go check out some la-z-boy recliners (outside the city) so i can eventually have a comfortable chair. i also have to write my self-appraisal for my annual review sometime tonight - i'm afraid i'm going to want to collapse into bed as soon as i get home.
