We are so blessed to be able to see a midwife! :) I've said this before, but am so thankful I could call Winni at anytime and know that I'll get a call back and/or even get to talk to her! I thanked her in person tonight for taking that phone call at 9:30pm at night......and comforting us in the midst of bleeding!
I thought more would go on in our appointment today, but it was more like a consultation.......us getting to ask her questions, getting to know her, and her getting to know us. It really was awesome! :)
Bummer news being is she has a 40 year reunion on the weekend July 12th. (she stated 5% give birth on their due date) Her husband has his 40 year reunion on July 25th....... we have a 5 week "period" 3 weeks before, to about 2 weeks after........ and of those weeks..... approx. 2 of them she would be gone. Sometimes that's how it is.......and we liked her enough to take the chance. She will have a backup midwife that we'll get to meet.......so that'll be good. She already has an idea of someone for us!
We learned something about circumcision tonight......that it is elective and insurance does not cover it - it is like a facelift! WHAT THE HECK?! Everyone in Europe does not circumcise........so why do we!? other than to make the penis look better?? (some say for health reasons)..... nonetheless, K and I were quite shocked.........no mind has been made up...... but I'm pretty sure we're both leaning towards not doing it if it were a boy.......... :)
We will go back in 2 weeks to hear the heartbeat......and to do a bit of a physical...go over medical history etc. If we don't hear the heartbeat, we'll go back in 2 more weeks to hear a heartbeat.... we are very excited!
I cannot wait for the next 4 weeks to get over with.........get me onto my 2nd trimester!!!
That's it for now.............
