First appt with midwife & weight Q

Mon, 11-17-2008 - 8:17pm

Today was my first appt with the midwives that operate with my dr's practice...the dr gave the midwives such high praise, and I had a midwife deliver my second daughter 20 years go...I decide to give them a try (my dr's practice will allow me to see either the drs or the midwives and change my mind up until the delivery time). I am so glad that I did....i was very pleased with the midwife's attitude and the level of interest she took...I have developed hypothyroidism (or it finally showed up in the bloodwork

Thanks Michelle! I guess that is a good way to look at it...I too had gained 35+ lbs with each of my past pregs but I am started out 20lbs heavier this time around (and 20 years later!)....I was hoping perhaps I would gain less. At least I am back to exercising, I hopped on the treadmill about 2 weeks ago and try to get 15-20min daily. Hoping that makes a difference...


Yes, I think I found a good practice overall...
