I had my first appointment on Tuesday (despite the crazy weather here, it was still on).  I got to see the bean--measuring 2 days ahead of LMP (still keeping EDD of 6/19), strong heartbeat of 180.  I go back next Friday for the actual midwife visit.  I am trying for a natural water birth this time and am excited (I changed doctors and hospitals for this option).  Hope everyone's appointments are going well

Yay for a strong heartbeat and good appointment! I'm looking into changing doctors and hospitals for this birth too because I want something more natural birth friendly. I planned a natural birth with dd, but it didn't happen (largely bc I went very overdue and had to be induced. boo pitocin). Anyway, I'm interviewing a mid wife in early December and if that goes well, I'll be switching. The hospital the mw delivers at has a birthing tub, so I'm excited about that. I'm not sure I actually want to give birth in the tub, but I'll definitely want to use it for pain management.

I'm so glad to hear you had a great appointment!  It's so nice to see that heartbeat for the first time.  Please let us know how your appointment with your midwife goes this Friday!
