So my appointment today got pushed back to next week.  Darnit.  I was looking forward to finally hearing the heartbeat.  By the time I finally get in to see her I'm going to be almost completely out of the first trimester.

Hey Tracy.

Where I am the Midwifery program is so busy with pregnant ladies that they aren't taking any appointments until a minimum of 16 weeks. In the mean time we have to go to our GPs for basic checkups. Getting U/S and bloodwork still, but it still feels a bit strange. I'll be 17 weeks before my first midwives appointment. Then again, 3rd baby, so I feel like a pro. Not concerned again at all.
