DH and I have been waiting to schedule our first appointment with the midwives because we were waiting on our tax return, and after a huge mix up and more annoyance we were going to have to wait another 2-3 weeks until we got it. I had emailed the midwives to update them and I got a call today and I'm very excited to say they're SO flexible, instead of the $900 due at the first visit they're okay with just $150 so I FINALLY get to see them on Saturday. She asked me to make my level-2 ultrasound for this week if possible (I'm 17 weeks so it seemed a bit early, but I guess not too early), and I got scheduled for Friday.
I'm so very excited because it's all becoming even more real, the having a homebirth portion of my pregnancy. I went today to start the process of getting all my records from my OB so I'm hoping they can get them all together by Saturday. I'm just so relieved even DH can tell the difference in how I'm feeling; I had secretly been stressing out a lot over this but now it's all done.
I guess now I have even more reason to really start my HypnoBabies home study, and be able to practice even more with them.
That is awesome news!! I hope you love Hypnobabies scripts as much as I have. I started pretty early on. Some people say that they get burnt out, but I think the opposite has happened with me; I am addicted to them!! I have been blessed with flexible MWs so far too. I always compare them to the OBs I've seen in my life, and there really is no comparison. They are so much more caring and less focused on payments, policies, and procedures. You have to let us know all about your first appointment!!

That's wonderful news! I totally understand about the stress factor of not knowing and having to wait...I couldn't switch to my birth center until after the first trimester and it really weighed on me until I was safely set up there. Good luck going forward, I hope you love it!
Yay that is great. I hope you love the MW!
