Hi all! I'm still here.
I found a new OB (really liked the MW, but absolutely no way to tdo the $$). He is great.... I never thought that I'd go back to a male MD, but this guy is great (I'll revise as necessary after the baby comes). LOL I took my birth plan with me to my first appointment and he said that he saw "absolutely nothing out of line" in it.
he also has priviledges at the birthing center that I want to go to. WOO! I'm really excited.
As of Monday, I'm 80% effaced, 1.5 cm, and at -1 station. I'm noticing some bh ctx, but nothing that can be classified as uncomfortable.
I got my first "have you had that baby yet" call this afternooon. I just laughed and said no. I get the feeling the everyone else is more anxious for me to have this baby than I am. With ds I was ready and wanted him OUT, this time, I'm following the philosophy "baby will come when baby is ready."
Kj - sorry about the crummy appointment. hopefully the next one will be better
UmmNuh - never too early to talk about birthplans, IMO... wish that I had done it earlier with my old OB.
greenluv - Yea! totally rocks that you are doing this! Once you go, it's my turn next. LOL
