So the appt was short and sweet as usual... Hr is good (although she never tells me what it is and Im too busy yapping I always forget to ask lol). still measuring a week ahead, and the best news yet is that I passed my gestational diabetes test!! Now the frustrating part... I was asking her how open my hospital was to me having a natural birth, and see said they were very open to that, but when I mentioned that I was glad of that because I especially don't want an I V, she was like oh you have to have one, it's something that she basically requires. Then she preceded to tell me all of the reasons I need one... basically rattling off every possible bad scenario... like reading off all of the bs in the what to expect book. My problem with this is, I could understand if this were my first baby, you really never know how your body will react, but I've had 3 healthy babies from problem free labor and deliveries... I know I'll be fine. I just really wanted to be able to labor my way, with plenty of walking or even showering if I want without a freaking I V hanging out of me. I guess at least it can be done and then taped down, with them only using it for after baby comes for pit to get the placenta out quickly. Im trying to stay positive (God knows Dh is being a big baby about me birthing med free, so Im dealing with that, too... and the doc being on his side didn't help today). Anyway, that's where I am now... so i guess all in all the appt went well, and I'll just have to go with the flow when it comes time to have my little man.
