I met with my midwife for the first time today and LOVED her! She has been doing this 20 years. That's a long time for a naval hospital. She knew all my history from my previous two pregnancies which I was impressed by...usually I have to go over EVERYTHING!

Baby's heart beat was 160, no u/s...but I didn't expect it. We talked about my plans for a VBAC and she was so encouraging and adament about how great of a candidate I was for it. She said right now they are going to treat me as high risk until they can't find a reason not to. (I had Pre-E with my first and Placenta Previa with my second). So she sent me for more blood work and a kidney and liver function test. I also have to do a 24 hour urine collection starting tomorrow. Fun! But I am really glad they are on top of it.

I haven't gained any weight. I scheduled my anatomy scan for January 8th. I will be 21 weeks. My next appointment is Dec. 10th, unless they find something in my tests, then she will call me back in.

I also scheduled my elective gender scan. They said because of my small frame...they want me to come in at 14 weeks! If they can't tell, I'll go back a week later. So, in 14 days...I have my gender scan! I'll be 14w2d!

Mom to Ava (8) and Layla (6). Bennett Scott due May 19, 2014!

Glad you like your midwife! I'll keep hoping they can't find any reason to keep you high risk

Good luck with your elective! I hope you find out
