Megan, good idea to start this now...
Today: went to family practice doctor for required checkup before delivering at the birth center. I'll also be taking Allison there after she's born so it was good to have a meet-and-greet. A huge
: for the fact that my insurance ACTUALLY COVERED the visit, simply amazing to me because we are paying out of pocket for everything related to this pregnancy. The whole thing went really well, he is very down with all the natural AP stuff so I couldn't be happier about that... he said he was okay with letting me make the decisions and did not have preferences as to which direction I would want to take with her. He was even interested in what had led me down the natural birth path - pretty cool.
Ok, one thing though: on my paperwork I was honest about my alcohol intake and said I had one glass of wine a week in the 2nd half of my pregnancy. He read that and said, well, not every week right?? and I got all nervous and lied, oh no not really every week, and then he made a note there to change what I had written. He didn't elaborate, so ummmm? Am I in trouble? Did he maybe do that because the point of me being there was to get the all-clear for being a low-risk pregnancy? Has anyone else been warned about their very moderate alcohol intake? (Yes I know "no amount has been proven safe" but my midwife never said a word when I gave her the same info...)
