This is really targeted for those considering home births, but feel free to share anything that could be helpful.
I'm just wondering what you're doing for your first appointments. Are you calling your midwife/screening for one right now or are you waiting a bit to make that first appointment? Also, are you going to your regular doc to confirm the pregnancy before seeing your midwife or not?
I know when I got pregnant with DS that I went to my PCP to confirm the pregnancy, but in retrospect it seems like a waste of time. I'm pretty sure that they just did a dip test and then talked to me. Then I called the birth center to make an appointment, but didn't go in until I was like 8-10 weeks or something. We still have to interview for midwives (assuming we're going this route -- still need to confirm with DH), so I guess I'm thinking of timing. I still feel like this isn't real and if I call someone this early that I'm jinxing things. I know, it's weird. Also, we're getting ready to go on a weeklong vacation this Sunday and I don't know if I should go into the doctor before we go to check everything out. Ugg. You'd think I'd be on the ball with this after going through it before.
