Today was my first appointment with the midwives at the Birth Center and it went really well. The baby’s heartbeat was strong at 156, and while the doppler was on he or she was swimming wildly about which was kind of funny. It was such a huge relief to find out that he/she is ok! I will be 13 weeks on Thursday, which is the age of the baby in the picture, although the pictured baby is no relation to me, I found him on a website. 🙂 The baby is about three inches long now.
I was really pleased with the appointment and how much time they took answering my questions and finding out my history. I think it will be a much more supportive atmosphere to deliver in. At this point I feel confident that we made the right decision, and very thankful and happy that Bean 2 is doing so well!
