We got to see baby's little heart beating away. Baby was measuring at 8 weeks, 3 days which is pretty much right on and everything is looking perfect so far. I talked to my doctor about the actual birth to see how he would be for a natural birth and he was all for it. He said I could push in any position I want (squatting, all fours, etc) and that baby would be placed on my tummy right away. He was fine with delaying cutting the cord. He said he won't even talk induction until 41 weeks. He said this is a natural process and I can do whatever I want. So, that made me feel much better. His nurses had me thinking this wasn't a very natural child birth friendly office. The doctor also told me I didn't have to do any testing I didn't want to do. He also didn't give me a specific due date, just said late August. I like him. He spent about an hour with us and I came away feeling really good about everything. And without further ado...here's our bean.

well he sounds great...does this mean no homebirth afterall? I thought last update you were still going to shoot for the homebirth, depending on if you found a backup OB?

Unfortunately, DH just really isn't on board with a home birth. So, I just decided to get on with things and make sure that I can still have the best birth possible without having a home birth.
