I know what you mean by wanting the birth to be private. I thought the same but I met our midwife last night and I feel very confident about having her there. This is my first baby, and I think having someone there to keep me focused is just what I need. I feel confident in knowing that someone who knows what to look for incase things are not going normally is there. The chances of something going wrong are slim, but they do happen. Her confidence made me feel more confident about my abilty, and she was so lovely and so sure that we will build up a great relationship that it just makes me more excited to share this with someone like her.
We are in Adelaide.
We had our booking appoitment with her yesterday and it was great. So good to see someone include my partner in the whole thing too. Too many times I have seen the partner ignored (I am a midwifery student and see it on placement a lot). I have decided I might get just one ultrasound, though I am still not 100%. I will wait until I hear the baby's heartbeat next appointment and see how I feel after that.
So happy! I just want to tell everyone, but we are holding off telling family until easter and mothersday. And probably won't tell friends until I start showing and can't hide it any longer.
Anyone not getting the Flu vaccines? Why? Why not?
