Michelle, that's so great!! How exciting. We are really busy too. I'm leaving for Florida on the 26th so I hope our clients give birth before I leave! I think we have 5-6 more due right now. I haven't studied this whole month. I'm falling behind but I'm not worried about it. I'm learning so much more by doing the hands on stuff...more than I think I would get out of doing Q and As.
ooooh, guess what guess what... today I got the big news I've been waiting months for...
:I've been accepted to Bumi Sehat!:
I'll be doing a short-term apprenticeship with them next June/July.
For those new here... Yayasan Bumi Sehat.
So ladies after much soul searching and an upcoming job loss, I have decided to apply for FSTM in August 2009. I will officially be a midwifery student in 8 months. I am so so nervous and so so excited and so so sad all at the same time. I need to talk this through so feel free to skip it if you don’t feel like reading my though process
DH and I decided to TTC this month because it felt like we were ready and we really wanted to have another so that when I went back to school in 2011, the new baby would be 2 and DS would be 4. Well during my 2WW, I found out my job will be cut very soon. DH and I discussed for many hours what the options were and we decided if I wasn’t pregnant, I should head back to school.
I took a HPT this morning and it was negative. I know I still have a chance of being pregnant but I have no symptoms and feel AF is on her way. I'm sad about this because our TTC efforts will now be put on hold for 3 years. I feel we will have more children though. It just won't be how we planned it.
Of course if I do end up being pregnant than we will need to come up with another plan but for now, this is it!
I am so nervous and starting to get those feelings like will I be a good midwife? Will I be able to handle the on call life, etc. Did anyone else feel this way before taking the actual plunge into midwifery? I keep talking to my preceptor about this and she keeps encouraging me to go to school.
Ok I’m done rambling!
