I had a midwife appointment yesterday and everything looks good! It lasted 2 hours! I love that we can just sit and chat about babies and birth, etc.. and I don't feel rushed. I have never felt so relaxed about my appointments before - they are just awesome! I'm 13.5 weeks now. So excited to have made it this far, and be entering my second trimester! I was SO worried we wouldn't be able to hear a heartbeat, but after searching for a minute, my midwife found it and it was a strong 160 bpm Blood pressure was really good and I've gained some weight. Starting to really pop out now Anyway, that's my update!

PS - DH found our old laptop, so that's what I'm using for now, until our other one is fixed. Hopefully soon as this one is a pain to type on - several of the keys don't work!

Sometimes I'm just in awe of the difference between a midwife and an OB. All my OB appts were literally 5 minutes with the actual doctor. My midwife appts are at least 45 minutes and if I run out of things to say pregnancy wise, we just talk about my family and stuff. I'm happy to hear you had a good appointment and heard the heartbeat
