Had my first antenatal checkup today, with a midwife/naturopath who was absolutely LOVELY. It seems my levels were pretty good, which makes sense as I feel great, though a few things need pepping up - more oily fish! - easy stuff though.
I also heard bub's heartbeat for the first time via doppler... I think I'll probably try to avoid that though as much as possible, as I felt quite violently nauseous after & don't think belly babe enjoyed the intrusion much. You live, you learn.
However she did manage to confirm there is only one ( - now THAT would have been a surprise) and a nice strong heartbeat. Guessed that one though, judging by the movements.
I'm still not sure if/how I will go about transferring care when we relocate, I suppose we'll just wing it. Usual story.
Hope everyone is well!

My GP was appalled with me not having ante-natal care with J. Funny how healthy and err alive he is, hey?

Kymmy - You were just "lucky" Thats what my GP told me when he found out I freebirthed last time
Hi everyone I used to be DramaQueen
I am having another homebirth this time with a lovely IM.
I have been (stupidly) going to the hospital in between visits with my IM, to try and save some money off her fees, but I seriously can't take their BS any longer so am just staying with the IM
I am about 23 weeks, due in early March.
Hope to keep up with you all

Wonder if I was just unlucky to be treated like crap when I had my hospital births then! x3
Life is risky, being a woman and having sex puts me at risk of getting pregnant which has its risks, birth is risky (hospital and home). But I sure know I am safest at home.

Hi Kymmy! I did say I was hoping to join you soon I'm only 10DPO but you can see my collection of POAS in my avatar I'm just hoping this bub sticks around. Can I ask how far you are from medical assistance when you FB?
Missie- would of loved to be a fly on the wall! I'm not heading to our local GP because I'm afraid if I do I'll be given the must leave town at 36wks lecture and I'd rather keep my options open, I'm hoping if I officially don't get told and we do choose to stay here they wont kick us out after?
Aya- I wondered where DQ went
AFM- well I sort of rambled in my responses

ETA - Not to mention the dangers associated with walking into some hospitals these days!! The amount of BS they spin you, can seriously be dangerous for your health

I don't drive. I do go in the car sometimes though. Oh no.
I am about 20 minutes drive from RWH which I assume in an emergency I would go to but via ambulance be quicker? We had to call emergency services when hubby locked bub in car one night with the keys (yep cars are risky) and they came so quickly, within a few mins. All 3 services!
I am hoping to birth quickly like last time though. Nothing riskier than labouring in a car if you ask me...
