I'm not sure yet if we'll go totally unassisted with the pregnancy or see a different mw a few times. All I know is the thought of NOT having to go back to this office after tmo is SOOOOOO liberating to me!

My appt for the 20wk u/s and a mw appt is in the morning and I'm already feeling tense! : I'm not nervous about the u/s...just having to be in that environment! UGH!

I need to talk to my dh some more but I so very much want to switch prenatal plans! I think if he sees that everything is OK with baby and I have a good appt., he'll be pretty open to it.

No questions or anything..just needed to get that out somewhere that I know people will understand.

I wish I had your enthusiasm during my pregnancy. I often wonder what the outcome of my birth would have been if I had delivered at home.

ETA: Sorry to hijack there...

GOOD LUCK!!!

The very minute I took a stand and stopped seeing my OB (Opportunistic Bulls**ter ), the biggest weight was lifted from my shoulders!! I was soo afraid that one of my visits would land me in the ajoining hospital and that I would have to sign myself out AMA. Thank the Gods I didn't have to go through that!

I'm glad to hear you are listening to your inner voice on this. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks ladies.

Talked to dh some tonight. He asked me if I was nervous about tomorrow. I said I was but didn't really know why. That I thought some of it was b/c I don't want to be in that environment. I just mentioned in passing that I wish I didn't have to go back.

He said, "Do you want this to be your last appointment there?"



Of course I said YES!!

So we talked some more and I told him to pray/think about it some more and let me know what he thought. From what I can tell and what he said, he's totally open to it.

Thanks Ladies

Yesterday didn't go as planned b/c they messed up the scheduling w/ the u/s. It's supposed to be tmo, not yesterday. I did see the mw tho.

Which now I see as a good thing b/c dh and I decided to cancel that appt and be done. I'm going to set up an u/s elsewhere. I'm also going to get ahold of the mw who was here for my last birth and talk to her about prenatals. I'm still not quite sure if I want to see her a few times or go totally unassisted.

Anyway...I feel SOOO much better about everything!!!
