Hi all... I just got my BFP yesterady morning so I am very early in Pregnancy. I called the Birthing Center where I gave birth the last two times and was informed that I couldn't be taken because we moved and we are too far away, and they already have too long of a waiting list... I was given the number of the nearest birthing center to them which is equally as far away from me and was told pretty much the same.<br>
However, They did put me on the waiting list and I will find out only after 20 weeks... which leaves things up in the air a bit too much...<br>
Because a Doctor is completely out of the question (as I imagine you all understand) I have decided that I will go unassisted.<br>
It was something that I was thinking about before but wasn't sure of, but now that everything is so up in the air and uncertain I feel comfort in the desicion. I also feel comfort by knowing that I have control over the whole situation and over my own body.<br>
I was asked by the head midwife yesterday to find a doctor in the meantime but I told her that I couldn't... I think she thought I was trying to puther in a tight spot, but I really felt comfortable with the decision and I really don't mind not getting the space... She said that she would check with the midwives at their weekly meeting to see if someone is willing to see me once before 20 weeks (when they would have given me an answer) but I feel like telling her that I meant to put no pressure on her, that I truly believe that unassisted in the way to go for me this time.<br>
Dh is still not confident about the unassisted birth process but doesn't mind at all about having an UP...<br>
I would like both.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
