I'm in the same boat - I have an unregistered MW who can't order tests, and I will probably go for a quick scan to check positioning at about 32 weeks. DD was breech, suspected it at 39 weeks after no prior U/S, and got a scan by going to a walk in clinic and asking for a referral. Will do the same this time.

Yeah I just called my previous MW office (they were CNMs) and they said that I'd not be able to do it without a script.


DD was breech too for me and we needed to do external version. She may have flipped at the end if left alone (and I was doing the correct exercises :)

Had my 20 week ultrasound today! joy.gif Baby looks great! I can't even begin to say how happy and excited I am! I was so tempted to cave and find out if it is a boy or girl but baby kept me to my original desires and had it's legs crossed the whole time. ROTFLMAO.gif LOL So happy that baby looks good and healthy! 



Catwmandu, I just called a pregnancy center and they did one for me. Maybe you have one in the area that would help? I just told them I was going with a midwife that couldn't do one or refer me. Thankfully the center knows my midwife too. So that helped. Good luck!

Yeah Tspencer! so glad all went well with the US.


I had my sweet midwife stop by the Farmers Market today while we were selling and so kindly ask if I wanted her to grab her doppler  for a listen :) So I got to have a little listen midmorning while sitting in my van. It was awesome and really helps keep me relaxed about this babe :)


Looking forward to our ultrasound - although I just realized that the hospital still hasn't called to book our appointment. guess I need to make some calls on Monday. 


I am so tired from our market day but I get to go out on a date night with my DH and some friends tonight!!! And My mom is keeping my other 3 for a sleepover too!!!! Just hoping I can keep my eyes open and find something to eat that won't put me in the hospital.
