Thanks for the warm welcome to the board, Joan! (First Prenatal with Midwife Tomorrow posting in the Welcome & Introduce Yourself thread)


My 10-week appointment at my midwives earlier this week went fine, except for the cavalcade of tests they're expecting me to sign on for over the next seven months. My

Hi Melinda. I'm pretty sure I did weekly NSTs and ultrasounds beginning around 32 weeks with both my girls. I don't remember the exact week/time they started, but they were definitely weekly and 32 weeks sounds about right (I was induced at 38 weeks with my first daughter and was induced again at 37.2 with my second daughter and I remember having done quite a few weekly NSTs and ultrasounds by that point). Will they not continue to care for you if you don't sign on the dotted line agreeing to all their tests? What do you think they'll do if you tell them you'd rather wait a few weeks past 32 to start your weekly NSTs? I personally don't mind the weekly visits but that's just me and I know everyone's different. Hang in there and try to remain positive. : ) Best wishes to you -- please keep us posted on what transpires.

Hi Melinda,
