s Nothing I can add except that my thoughts are with you and your family.
Shannon - yup, slowly, slowly - didn't you see my earlier post?

So I just spoke with our OB, and I feel much better. For everyone else, here's the story:
Basically, I went to her to investigate my fertility in a way not possible with my GP (who told me that a woman's cycle is 28 days long and we ovulate on day 14
...oh, and to relax and it would happen...to take my time - she thought I had been trying for 1 1/2 years - the only way I could get the hormone tests run - in reality it was almost a year)...anyway, so after one visit with this OB/GYN (who Shannon and I both LOVE
) I did become pregnant! Well, I've been at odds as to how to proceed - the hope all along was to plan for a hb with mw. So I have expressed this to the OB/GYN, and she's super supportive (of course!), and I also let her know that in the event that I cannot go the mw route (ie twins!), I would absolutely want to be under her care (and not someone more local)! So she wants to take me for the first 12 weeks, while in the meantime I research midwives. What a peach! So I go for a quant beta next week, and the week after, then an u/s (which I'm 85% sure I will do). In the event that I do end up under her care all the way, she's only a 45-min drive away from my home, and 25 mins from work, so it's managable.
Next week I am going to an info night at the mw centre near my house, plus I meet my ND, who knows the mw scene around the region, which ones follow a more medical model, which ones are more hb etc...
