Mention your county in the notes as that will help the petition carry a little more weight in Raleigh.

Oh and while we are on the topic of midwives and homebirths, I had my first appt on base at the Naval Hospital and the midwife who is to be my care provider seemed to have no problem with the idea of a homebirth. She was careful about how she worded things for liability reasons I'm sure but seemed open to the idea and willing to be as helpful as she can be without putting her own job at risk. I really liked her and was rather relieved.

Hey everyone,

I don't think that I have actually posted this anywhere on the boards- havn't really been around here much the last few months. But We found out on Easter that we're pregnant. Due December 15.

I was getting so much crap from the naval hospital and from tricare (ob clinic hadn't processed my referral from my pcm and told me that even when they did it would most likely be a few weeks before I would get in) so I actually eneded up switching to tricare standard. I'm going to the Crist Clinic. Trying to find a doula that hubby and I can afford. His cousin that lives in SC is supposed to get her certification w/in the next two months, but I worry that if I decided to use her it would take her too long too get up here (it takes about 4hours to get to our house, 4.5hours to get to OMH). We'll see though.

I had a similar experience with a midwife at NHCL. In fact, the midwife I saw was a prior homebirth midwife herself.

Are you planning a homebirth, then?

Thinking about it. So long as things remain uncomplicated, I'm leaning in that direction. It's nice to know that thre are midwives like this one though in case I do end up at the hospital.............she even told me the Hep B vax was optional!

I'm worried that I may have messed up today. I was at the salon and the lady doing my nails asked where I was having my baby. I told her at home so she asked more questions. As I was explaining about things and brought up the pediatric practices at OMH, the other lady getting her nails done spoke up. Turns out she's the chief nursing officer at OMH and a pediatric nurse. She had only good things to say about most everything involving MWs and homebirths and such. She assured me that it's not actually routine practice to take healthy babies to the nursery for hours if the parents don't want that. She gave me her card in case I had any more questions or needed help with anything should I end up there. She was very nice. My concern, though, is that she knows my OB and the pediatrician I had designated and I'm afraid she might say something to one of them about me having a homebirth. She did ask a few questions about who I was having attend me and said that it was good I had Dr. Gant (the pediatrician) as my backup (he is not and I never said he was). I was vague. I sure hope this doesn't cause any problems for me or my MW.

Gosh, we're active tonight!

I wanted to let you all know about the local food co-op. I think I've mentioned it before. I've been doing it for almost a year now & I love it! There are tons of products available (the catalog is about 200 pages)...bulk foods, frozen foods, herbs, supplements, etc.

You can get more info at the website: http://www.unitedbuyingclubs.com/

The local coordinator is Tama (johnandtama at earthlink dot net) or PM me for her phone number.

Oh, what a coincidence! I don't think it's likely she could cause trouble even if she tried...does she even know your name?

Nope, everything but. They do have it in other areas, & I think that is expanding, so maybe we'll get it later. I'll be sure to post if that changes!

It's called Dogwood Farm. PM or e-mail me if you want more info. The people who run it are lovely, but as a city girl it sure wasn't what I expected when I went there the first time!

When I delivered my last in 2006 at OMH, he was allowed to stay with me in the labor room for approx 1 1/5 hour before they took him to the nursery, was gone for an hour and they brought him back. .. didn't even get slack about him being in the bed with me sleeping

I am pretty much at whit's end with my current job. I just can't handle loosing the animals anymore (I work at a vet clinic). I also can't put up with some of the bs. Really I just need a change. In January, I applied to like every single bank in the county and with no luck didn't hear back from anyone. I have an associates in applied sciences and I am in school right now for an accounting degree. Does anyone know of anything in the area that is hiring. I don't want to work as a waitress cause I don't want to work evenings/nights. I would prefere something on the Richlands side of the county since I live out past the air port.

I'm at Camp Lejeune but should be moving out to Jacksonville next month.

Does anyone know of a place locally to get a booster carseat cover? If not, anywhere good online?

A cover to protect the seat so I can just wash the cover when it's dirty without having to take the seat out and take the pad off of it. That's a real pain. I found one website but it seems kind of expensive to me. http://www.kiskissa.com/car_seat_covers.htm I have a Meseez cover that I bought at a store in Hawaii for my convertible carseat but it doesn't fit on the booster seat very well.
