I had an appointment with my midwives this morning. I am always grateful for the fact that I am able to deliver my babies with midwives. Despite the less than ideal birth experiences that I have had, the fact that I have had midwives have saved the day both times. I am excited to be planning another homebirth and am grateful for midwives that don't balk when I tell them for the third month in a row that no, I haven't gotten my blood work done, that no, I am not going to fill out the diet form telling them everything I've eaten for a week, that no, I don't want them to use the doppler to hear the baby's heart beat, and that no, I will not be having an ultrasound, even though I am 18 weeks pregnant. I LOVE MIDWIVES!
