Thankfully I’m feeling better already. I’m sorry to rub my measly two weeks of nausea in anyone’s face, but that two weeks sucked for me and I’m really glad it seems to be mostly over. I’m not holding my breath that I’m 100% over it, but it’s awesome when I’m nausea free.
Last Thursday we went for a consultation at a birth center. I really want to have a VBAC and have the natural birth I really wanted with Lily and this birth center is perfect. It’s in a converted house and has 3 birthing rooms that each have a big spa tub and all look so comfortable and inviting. They have a walking path out back and a little community garden. They have a very high success rate with VBAC’s and are all very well trained. All in all I loved the midwife we met with and feel very comfortable there. I still need to hear back from the finance guy to see how the insurance works out, but other than that I’m pretty sure this is the route we are going to take. We already scheduled our first prenatal with them for week after next.
Oh and the midwife recommended a doula so I need to start looking into that. Fun. I can’t wait.
I’m tired, but not really more so than normal which is surprising to me and a good thing considering Lily has as much energy as normal. Darn kid should have some compassion for me. ** Edited I’m full of crap. I realized that I if I do anything at all during the day that is more intense than hanging out with Lily and cooking I want to pass out and no matter what by 9:00 each night I’m ready to call it a night.
I’m still doing 20 minutes on the elliptical 3 or 4 times a week. When I told the midwife that she was shocked and amazed. I really want to get back to doing yoga a few times a week, but I just don’t have the energy or desire to bend that much right now. The thought of bending over makes my nausea threaten to come back. The midwife said it’s fine and to wait till the second semester for stuff like that. I’m going to take her up on that.
