I'm going to need a back replacement after this week!! I've been packing boxes since last weekend when we found out DH got a new job in Jacsksonville, FL. When we go down to visit for Christmas, DH will be staying and living with his parents while he starts his new job. I'll be coming back to NC and living with my parents until we find a house down there, and in the mean time, all of our stuff is going to storage!
It's been a CRAZY week!! There should be a law against women having to pack and move while pregnant....around the holidays....and with a sick child!! At least it's just a head cold and Connor seems a little better today! We're doing Christmas with my parents on Saturday since DH won't be coming back. This week is seriously non-stop! Hopefully I'll be able to rest after I drive to FL on Sunday!!
And I found out I won't be able to birth at the birthing center with the midwives! FL law states I can only do a VBAC in the hopsital, not at a birthing center, and the midwives can only attend at the hospital and act like doula's pretty much. My only option to birth with a midwife is at home, and my entire family is against it....and I don't even know if we'll HAVE a house down there by then!! So looks like I'm on a mission to find a good OB who will do my VBAC. Luckily, there is an ICAN chapter down there and I've already been in contact with one of the main girls from the chapter, so hopefully they will help too.
So that's my crazy update for the week....I was a little bit hoping the world would end today so I don't have to finish packing!!! Hope everyone is doing well and had a more restful week than I have!!!
Hopefully Christmas brings some magic your way. It is hard when birthing plans have to change. I hope you find someone your are comfortable with. I have always used an MD and always wanted to deliver in a hospital with a level 4 NICU (fortunately, never needed it. I am just a neurotic person.). I can say while I don't care for some of the docs, I have one in my group who is WONDERFUL. He sits with you and has discussions about your worries and wants. Since you will have to have an MD, I hope you find one as wonderful as the one in my practice.
