“Are you happy

…about this pregnancy?”

That’s what my midwife asked me after opening my file and scanning over it’s contents. “Dietrich, is what? 13 months now?” Heheh..I’m still wondering why everyone calls him Dietrich, even when reading my spelling.

Yeah, I’m so totally psyched! Hmmm, no. I opted for something more mature sounding, “Yes, I’m so happy about it!” Her face brightened…

“Oh well good then! I love when moms have babies close in age, it’s just so great” Boy I was happy to see her smiling, I think I’m going to schedule all of my appointments with her. She asked about Deeder’s health and my medication. I promised I would call my neurologist and get some blood tests scheduled for my lamictal levels. I’m good at that, I had blood draws every month, and then every two weeks in the end of my last trimester with Deeder.

At the end of our meeting she gave me a hug and told me that this would be lots of fun. “It’s like getting together with an old friend!” Ah yes, thank you. I think I’m in the right place.

I liked that this meeting was all about talking about how I’m feeling even what I would change if I could rewrite my experience with Deeder’s prenatal care and delivery.

On August 14th I go in again for my physical. I hate that! Oh well, it’s got to be done I guess. My favorite beginning prenatal care is when the baby is old enough to have it’s heartbeat detected. Wowie is that ever cool!

    that’s pretty funny! It’s like she had to feel you out before she got too excited about it! I am glad that you both are on the same page. Makes for a much easier 9 months:)

    :D Yep…she probably does get people in there who aren’t happy.
    I felt like an old timer going in there, not having to fill out the paperwork like all the other girls!
