Midwife appt

I got to see my midwife yesterday after missing her last week (she had another delivery). I met her apprentice too who was really nice. We went over my birth plan and made a few minor changes. I did find out that she's going out of town on Thursday of next week and won't get back until one day after my due date!! I was not too happy, but there's nothing I can do about it. I'm not really expecting to go early, so hopefully it'll all work out. The good news is, her student (who can't actually attend my birth without the midwife present) offered to be there as my doula in addition to the doctor in case I go while my midwife is out of town. That'll be great. I see my midwife again before she leaves so I might have her check me to see how likely it is I'll go before she gets back.

Yay for having a doula! Fingers crossed that you don't go before your MW gets back. I'm in the same boat - my doc is out of town from next Thursday to the Thursday after that. He mentioned inducing me next week so that he could deliver me, but I am trying to avoid induction so hopefully I'll just go on my own before next Thursday (but now I need to wait for 3 more days because DH has a speech and debate tournament on Friday and Saturday that he really wants to go to. LOL)

Well hopefully you don't go early. It's nice you get her apprentice as a doula though. I need to do a birth plan this week. What did you change on yours?

I just had to add the lady's name as my doula and change something about the fetal monitoring because of their policies with VBACs. Have I mentioned that I'm doing a VBAC? I can't remember.
