we have found a doula, instead of going with the midwife (doulas cost a lot less!). she will come to the house and birth with us safely at home until im far along and then we'll head to the hospital! she will stay there with us and support us and keep us focused there at the hospital and even does home visits afterwards, as well as unlimited phonecall access to her for any questions.

and...i think i have found THE doctor! it looks and sounds very promising and they made me seem like an idiot for "asking" if the doctor will let us try a VBAC...the lady was like..um that is YOUR choice. and every midwife and doula i have interviewed has recommended this doctor. so i made my appointment, i see him in 2 weeks (so far away i know!) but the lady for U/S is calling me back in a few minutes and will make our appt for our first ultrasound!

Congratulations!!!! I've been thinking about you and I'm so glad that you have found something that will work! A doula sounds like a great alternative and that doctor sounds great as well. I'm so happy for you!!!
