Phoebe’s engaged!

8 Feb

So I had my midwife appointment today and two women came to the door who I had no idea who they were!  Turns out they’re two of the other midwives who are on call and really wanted to meet me and get the lay of the land so speak.  One of them was fantastic!!  She was all smiles and jokes the whole time and we just really got on.  She’s on call over the weekend and was going on and on about wanting me to go then so she can be here.  Seems she’s really keen on the homebirth side of things which really made me happy. 🙂

We say there for about a half an hour just having a chat about how I’m feeling, if I’m nervous or excited, how hubby feels about things.  Really just getting to know each other I suppose.  But then it was great because they started giving me everyone’s schedule and when they would be on!  I’ve been trying to get this out of my midwife every time she’s here but she always says that’s not for me to worry about.  These two though were having a great time discussing when I should go and who would be there if I did.  Apparently my midwife is off on Thursday through till Tuesday so she won’t be there if it’s then, which was great to know for my own peace of mind.  I wasn’t too keen on the other midwife though, she kinda smelled of smoke and wasn’t as friendly.  Though she didn’t say anything bad she was just kinda blah.

The positives were my BP was great!  And she’s FINALLY engaged!!!  ok only 4/5 but Ann Marie (the nice MW) was certain she was in and wouldn’t pop out again so things were on their way.  Oh that reminds me Ann Marie was a whiz at palpitations  she was able to tell me practically every body part of my wee girl and checked the position of her head without digging into my pelvis like the other one does all the time.  So I would love to have her on the day as I don’t want internals I want palps.

I was encouraged to have lots of sex to get things going (hahah yea after are last try and fail we’ll see how that goes) but I think things are on their way anyways as last night I had a few proper practice sensations that actually woke me up.  YAY!

    Ha ha! I thought this was going to be about you finding a cute little baby boy to contract her to when she’s older. I’m apparently having a blonde moment! 😉

    Congrats on having her move more into position. I hope things go very, very well. It sounds like you are in good hands, anyway. 🙂
