    Default 35 week appointment

    A lot of us had appointments today. Crazy.

    Mine was good. Henry is now measuring just one week behind instead of 2. His heartbeat was good too. I lost a pound since the last appoinment. BP was great 104/70..its usually on the low end.

    I met with the more chill midwife this time. I like her so much, I hope she is the one that attends my birth. The other one is nice, but a lot more medically minded and makes me worry more.

    On to weekly appoinments now!

    You can't choose which midwife you want as your primary? Hopefully you can get the one you like more. Are they concerned about the low bp?

    No, each midwife has days they are on call. So I get whoever is available that day. At least I know it will for sure be one of the 2, unlike if you have an OB then you never know who you will get. Most of my friends that saw OBs were not delivered by their OBs and that was upsetting for them.

    Is my blood pressure unusually low??? Haha, I have no idea about this stuff...she said it was "great." I just know that thats lower than 120/80. But maybe its too low? Hope not.

    I don't know what's ok and what's not either, lol! I was just curious what they said about it.

    That's how my midwives are. The main one, who has been through my other two pregnancies is so chill and really really knowledgeable and her "apprentice" midwife (the nurse midwife who can do vbacs) is much more medically minded and makes weird comments. I've never felt comfortable asking her questions. And I have to see her next. The NMW I saw with Noel I loved and she made me feel soo comfortable. It might be because this one is newer though.

    Oh and my bp is usually like 90/60 or something which is really really low... weird because I had pre-e w/ my first.
    Weekly appts already? I guess mine will probably start to be weekly too!
