Stay strong mama! You do call the shots! I'm a late ovulater(?) too. Usually day 21 of 35. You know your body best!!



Bliss: Thanks for the sending one right back to you! Looking forward to hearing your u/s results tomorrow!!

Hey, that's what I was last time! Day 21 of 35!

This time, thanks to Vitex, I was day 15 or 16 (depending on when you say the temp shift started... FF says 16, but it originally said 15... here's my chart - experienced charters are welcome to give me your opinion), and that would have been a 29 day cycle! I can't believe I actually have an ovulation-based EDD that matches the LMP based one.

Last time, I just told my OB that I ovulated around day 21, so he told me to push the 8 week u/s back a week so it'd be closer to 8 weeks. He then officially changed my EDD after the u/s (which was only 2 days off my charting based date).

Now my midwife... I just say "Put down the wheel", and she writes down whatever EDD I give her.

So both providers do believe me, but they handle it differently. And I imagine that if I didn't do the dating u/s, my OB would probably put down the date I suggested if I brought in my chart and showed him. I just haven't tested that, since I want the dating u/s, in case I have preterm issues like I did with my first. My babies measure 2 weeks ahead on u/s later in pregnancy (they just grow fast), and that can cause doctors to decide to let me deliver instead of waiting a bit longer. That's exactly what happened with #1, and thankfully he's fine and did really well for his gestation, but it was a risky move, and my current OB said *he* would have tried to keep baby in until 32 weeks.

I've been contemplating setting an appt with an OB just because I want a U/S to make sure there is a HB around 6 weeks.
Glad you had a good appt. Sounds like a good plan to work with both providers for a while to get what you want.

I had a dream the other night that my midwife had me on my hands and knees trying to get my uterus to fall forward so we could hear something. Totally paranoid!

The only reason I went to the cnm office so early was because I was so anxiety ridden about the viability of the pregnancy. I have not called my cpm yet, and I would not go to see her for the first visit until 12-13 weeks. You sound like you are right on track for me!

Interesting dream. I had a dream that I had twins...a boy and a girl.

So I took a couple of minutes today and called in to my MW. Since we really haven't been telling people it was so nice to hear how excited the receptionist was. I just love the ladies in there. With my son I used a huge office with twelve doctors the the ladies at the front desk had the personality of wood most days. I'm so glad I found this practice this time. I'm excited to see my MW. Every other word out of her mouth is "Fantastic!" I'm not sure how she makes a pelvic pleasant, but she does. Not sure why I was dragging my feet now. LOL!

Found out that our friends are eleven weeks pregnant with there second! It'll be so cool to actually share baby raising with a friend. We had Gabe way before most of friends were even thinking about kids. It makes it hard to have adults to hang out with when no one wants to hear your poop stories. This is one of our best friends too. He and DH have been friends since pre-school. Went to college together. We now live just a few minutes from each other, but two hours from our home town. Kind of our life line so far from family. Heck our we named our son after him.

Midnightmommy I'm so glad you love your midwife! : So far I really like mine too. She actually treats me like a person, not just an appointment like most of my doctors have in the past!

That's really cool that your friends are pregnant at almost the same time as you! I have a cousin due in April and 2 more due in May, so it's going to be really neat to all have babies almost the same age!

No twins, but I had a great appt. Baby was looking great. The heartbeat was perfect, so far so good.

That is great that you love your midwife. I loved mine too.

That is so exciting that your friends are also pregnant.
