    Default Talked to another m/w!!!

    Okay, so my meeting a couple weeks ago didn't go very well with the m/w I interviewed. I was getting a bit discouraged cause here in IL there's not a lot of options (actually there is pretty close to none). I have an appt with my doctor tomorrow so I was just going to try and talk him into doing my VBA2C in the hospital, which is what I don't want. If that didn't work, I truly had no idea what I was going to do next.

    Well, I went through some channels and was able to find a m/w very close to me. I just got off the phone with her and.......I LOVE HER!!! This is how I wanted so badly to feel at my last m/w appt, but I just didn't. She is everything I want her to be! She answered the questions I had just like I was hoping. She's close, which isn't everything, but it's handy to say the least. I just felt like I had known her forever, like we had the same ideals about birth and everything. Can you guys tell by my horribly put together sentences that I am so excited I can barely type?!?! I want to scream from the rooftop or call everyone I know, scratch that, the only thing I want to do is tell you girls cause you're the only ones that will truly understand my excitement!!!

    I can't wait til DH gets home and I can figure out a time to go meet her in person!!!

    Thanks girls! I knew you girls would understand! I'm soooo excited. I called DH earlier and started telling him the news. He just said, hey, can I call you back later on my way home. Apparently work is more important to him than this ridiculous!! LOL!

    A week or so ago I finally talked to my mom at length about wanting to do a homebirth. In the beginning she thought I was being completely ridiculous and that DH would eventually stop me (that's exactly what she told my BFF). But after I got a chance to make her sit and listen to me, she realizes I'm not on a suicide mission. She still really wants me in a hospital, but now at least I don't think she's gonna call the cops on me while I'm in labor *smiling tenuously*

    I was seriously contemplating calling The Farm and seeing how we could manage something like that. Hopefully she will be as wonderful in person as she was on the phone and I can stay right here in my nice comfy house to have my baby. After reading all the homebirth stories, now I can't imagine it any other way.

    OH that is WONDERFUL!! How I would give anything to feel that comfortable with my m/w. I haven't met her yet, so hopefully I will, but I totally understand your excitement. I have also considered The Farm as we will be in WV which isn't that far away. I even looked up the website and everything lol. It would just be very hard to take LO with me. I hope your meeting goes just as well as your conversation, though I wouldn't expect anything to change. What GREAT news!!
