Katiecornflakes - It was pretty great, especially for being at the last minute. We went down there for our first visit three days before the baby was born, and drove the five hours there in labor (luckily, easy painless labor, and we had 13 hours to spare). I was really happy to find them, since I hadn't been able to find any midwives in town who didn't say, "Go to the hospital and get a c-section!" :P Anyway, I think my birth story is probably still here somewhere... Yup, looks like it didn't disappear with all the site changes. :) http://www.mothering.com/community/t/589894/seths-natural-breech-birth-long
We aren't planning on any early scans, I generally try to avoid stuff that isn't proven safe. Just in case. :) My husband really wants a later scan for gender, though. That would certainly be interesting, if that connection turned out to be true - does it mean that the placenta's placement in the uterus is related to gender, or is it the placenta with relation to the baby, somehow? If it's the first, I'd wonder if placenta previa is more common with boys or girls. Hmm...
Thanks for the reassurances on the three boys issue! :) We'll figure out a way to enjoy whatever we get. Too late to worry now! :)
I'm not an herb expert, maggiemay, but I think I've heard things about chamomile not being safe? I'm not sure, though. Mint should be fine, of course. I just bought a box of echinacea tea right before taking my pregnancy test... and now it's just going to sit there, since half the people say it's safe and half say the study isn't big enough. *shrug* Maybe the boys will drink it, they like tea. Or at least they like to have me make tea, and then they run off and leave it there. :)
