It went pretty good! I gained 6 pounds since my last visit (yikes!) but it wasn't a concern. Dane's heartbeat was 144bpm and he is head down! So the little bugger is punching my cervix haha. I am measuring on track and everything is going great.

She gave us an invitation to a picnic event she does every year with current patients and previous patients. For us to get to meet other home birthers in the area. I really want to go so hopefully Jason will be up for it. He seemed up for it during the visit. I'd love to just meet other moms having a home birth and who have had previous home births. Plus, I can become social with people who feel the same way I do and hopefully get Gage some little buddies.

Gage went with us and he got this oh so cute look on his face when Katy (my midwife kathi's apprentice) found Dane's heartbeat. It was more of a "what the heck is that?!" and said it wasn't his baby brudder. So cute.

I'm glad we had a good visit. Our next appointment is the 23rd at 1130am. I'm hoping my moms days off are still consistant because I want her to meet my midwife. Since she will be at my house during the birth, I'd prefer they meet before I'm in labor haha.

I'll be 28 weeks on Friday!

Yay for a good appointment! My midwife is having a get together like that this saturday but I have to work I would love to go though, how often do you get to talk with other moms who have done a home birth IRL?

I really want to go and Jason said there shouldn't be any issues as to why we can't. My shyness will get the best of me though, that is my biggest issue.

I don't know anyone IRL who has had a home birth. So, to meet women locally who chose the same route as me is something I'd love.
