My quick appointment I had asked for at my MW last night just to hear the heartbeat turned into a full 15 wk appointment as well. First off I am over the moon!!!!! We heard the heartbeat for the first time, my fiancé was so excited he even recorded it I finally feel truly pregnant!!! In the end we chatted business for about 20+ mins, she allayed a few fears I had about how we would handle my 3rd stage hemorrhage this time differently. And then we ended up chatting for over 2 hrs lol!!
She told us super funny birth stories (of course leaving out the personal details) specifically about cleanup after birth. She said the worst for her has been the same mom twice. I thought I would share since it really had me rolling last night....so this mom has lots of kids that my midwife team has delivered but the last 3 births they have not made it to, they always arrive just a few mins after the birth. ( midwife thinks the mom just gets in the zone and forgets to call until its too late) Also the mom has a white bathroom with UNSEALED grout and for the past 2 births has delivered in the bathroom!!! My midwife was less than pleased!!! Lol before the last one she told the mom if she insisted upon giving birth in the bathroom she should leave her some toothbrushes to clean the grout with in her home birth kit ( now this was said in such a way as to hopefully deter the mom from repeating this bathroom birth the next time. My MW said she was there for hours cleaning that bathroom the last time!!) Well they show up right after the birth of her last child, find she gave birth in the bathroom again and she actually found toothbrushes in her kit for the grout!!!! Guess when your home birth comes with a free bathroom scrub it's hard to pass up:p
