So my doctor is on vacation this week, which means that she will be around for my birth :). Really though, I was able to meet and chat with the Midwife today… Sonya. She rocks! She is really nice and answered all of my questions, just like my doctor and she was able to point out several things and help me get through some of my discomfort with some tips!
1: Nursing Bras (which I already knew would be a bit better than regular ones)
2: Mommy Belly Belt (not really sure I am into this, but may help with the abdominal discomfort
3: Water Birth: I doubt I would actually deliver in the tub, but she really helped me learn a bit more about laboring that way, and provided I have a normal labor and delivery, there is no reason not to give it a shot! A big bonus, is that I can’t get my BP tested with that awful machine! BONUS!
4: She felt around and was able to tell me that babies head is officially pointed downward! Just one step closer to coming out.
So all in all it was a good visit!
Later in the day I had the pleasure of seeing Mommy Sara and baby Gracyn… She is so beautiful! It was a nice visit and Mommy is feeling well.
We hope it continues!
Next up: Baby Shower tomorrow! WOOHOO! Nana and PopPop are coming into town with Aunt Stephie and Uncle Matt. They fly in tonight and then it’s cook all day tomorrow.
