My first midwife appointment was yesterday! Best part: we got to hear a heartbeat! I am surrounded by people who have miscarried this year - one of which was my sister in law in October right about when we were conceiving. So to hear that heartbeat and know that there was a real live amazing tiny human being in there was the best sound in the world ever. I cired. I bawled. The midwife said "You really were worried." Yep, I made it to 13 weeks. sooo good.
This midwife (there are 3) is just my style. We talked about VBAC, breech birth, prenatal testing, and she is fine with VBAC at the birth center which makes me so happy. I know anything can happen and we could end up at the hospital anyway but at least that opportunity is there.
