Well the appointment went well overall. BP 124/76 which is a tad high for me but well within range. The midwife was very nice and she eased my fears about transferring to Italy. She said that they do not view childbirth over there like they do here. She said that childbirth isn't seen as being a "technical" thing (I think that was her word). She said that epidurals are not given out like candy there - I thought that was an odd way of putting it.

Anyway, no pap since I had one done in November of last year and it came back fine. She tried to look for the heartbeat but wasn't able to. I have heard the baby everynight with my doppler so I wasn't worried. Plus, I knew she was look WAY to high on my abdomen. I didn't want to say anythin, especially when she said, "Welp, let me pull out the u/s machine." Who's going to argue with that? Dh was in aww over it. She found the baby just fine along with his/her heartbeat which was a strong 160. She showed dh all the parts, legs, arms, etc. She even printed us out a picture. The picture isn't great since it was one of those portable machines but nonethe less...

Oh, I am also measuring 12w6d but she said with that u/s it's +/- 5 days so she is going to keep the date as the 7th.

She then sent me to get a urine culture and do a 1-hour glucose since my BMI is almost at 30 . I will know the results this afternoon.

My next and last appointment with her is April 28th!

Last but not least - Our Little One...

She meant that they don't use a lot of medical intervention when it comes to giving birth. Their views on childbirth are more natural then using medical intervention. I doubt they will be getting the bowls of hot water and shoe lace for the umbilical cord - but heck, who knows!

I'm more nervous about the quality of care rather then the actual birth. The hospital here is really good so finding one that is as good might be hard...
