I don't usually post about appointments, but this one was exceptional
I met the 6th and final midwife today. I have now met them all. She was great. She actually stopped and chatted with me, the others don't typically do that. It definitely makes you feel like you matter!
I asked again about water births. This hospital will allow you to labor in the tub, but they have a rule against actually delivering the baby in the tub.
She told me "well.. I have an obligation to at least "try" to get you out of the tub *wink wink* but if the baby is born right there that's fine by me!" She said some of the older midwives, one of them is 60, has a hard time with water births due to kneeling on the floor and just the mechanics of her trying to assist. That made me feel really good... hopefully I get the right midwife lol!!! The only down side still is that these are normal shower/bathtub combo's, so definitely not as comfy as a birthing pool but I'm hoping to make it work.
I passed my GTT at 62mg/dL! I was really surprised it was that low. I was 91 last time. My weight is up 15 pounds, which also surprised me because I ate a bowl of cereal, a piece of banana bread, and a slice of pumpkin pie before going in. I was expecting it to be higher.
So all in all, a slightly more exciting than usual appointment!
