We had our first appointment with a midwife today. We heard the heartbeat! :-) My husband seems more inclined to go ahead with a home birth and pay for the rest if we don't get a waiver from our insurance, which I'm hoping we will get! If not, it'll be a chunk of change, but doable. I feel more relaxed now and am feeling quite a lot of movement. Lots of strong taps going on. The baby gave us a nice, loud kick while we were listening to the heartbeat and was moving around a lot! It was tricky for the midwife to keep following the movement to hear the heartbeat for more than 2 seconds. We're all very excited and I'm feeling really peaceful today. Heartburn is kicking in but I got papaya enzymes to hopefully keep it away. I'm still not quite past some of the sleepiness, but the nausea is mostly gone. My sinuses are pretty uncomfortable, too. It's funny, but it REALLY hurts my sinuses when I use warm water to wash my face. Weird!
I hope everyone is feeling well!!!
