I had my 1st vist with my midwife Tuesday. I went pretty well. Weren't able to hear the hb yet. She said my uterus is tilted back which makes it more difficult early on. But she said my uterus felt like the right size for my dates. We discussed the AFP and nuchal translucensy (sp?) tests and she basically said all they tell you is if your chances of having a baby with an anomaly are greater than what would otherwise be assumed based on the mother's age. I talked it over with DH and we decided there was not much value to this and so we will not be having them done. Especially since we were planning on having the high level u/s regardless. She also said they now practice at the hospital closest to my home and that this hospital is getting a tub. Other than that not too eventfull. Next Monday we go for my 1st u/s to rule out another molar pregnancy. Wish me luck.
