Sounds like a good appt. I am glad you have your paperwork done. Happy Birthday to your dd.
got some very useful information today! We finished the pre-birth registration at the hospital, and when i mentioned that i wanted the good room with the good tub the lady told me when i call the hospital to tell them i'm coming in, i should ask for that room (i guess the epidural rate is going up here, so most women don't even need the tub because they'll never see it! so i need to ask for room 179 or the other room with the big tub because then they can give me the good room and put the epidural mamas in the plain square rooms with regular tubs! yay!
Sounds exciting that you're getting everything ready with the hospital, and that you feel confident with your doctors!

That's awesome that the hospital will let your reserve a tub room by phone. Our hospital only has 1 tub and it is first come first serve. I hope you get one of the tub rooms, a water birth sounds dreamy.
Oh that was awesome you got that advice! I'm excited for my waterbirth - can't wait to swap stories!!

I am glad you are able to reserve the tub. Our hosptial has one tub and it is first come first serve. It isn't in a patient room though. You just never know when you get there if you will be able to get in or not.
There are 4 delivery rooms at this hospital and they all have tubs, but one has the tub outside of the bathroom and i guess another one has the second "good" tub and the other 2 are just extra big bath tubs, which is still probably going to be nicer than my home tub. And whenever i talk to ANYONE they really seem to think that you'll be allowed to use the tub if you want to barring an epidural or extreme complications. In fact, i know a friend who actually DID use one of the tubs and had a waterbirth, but that was years ago when they were brand new!
Even though its only been 5 days since my last OB appt, i have one today because this is when the OB i haven't had a chance to see yet was available, so hopefully my GBS test came back so i can at least know the results and be able to plan if i'm +. Need to find that copy of my birth plan now...
