i met another milestone yesterday when i went to my very first prenatal appointment with my midwives.


how do i love thee, midwives?  let me count the ways:

  • i don’t have to get weighed…EVER!
  • i don’t have to have any pap smears/pelvic exams until a month or two after i deliver!
  • they weren’t mad at me when i accidentally peed into the toilet instead of into the cup they just finished instructing me on how to use!
  • and finally, they found our little baby bear’s heartbeat in 30 seconds or less with the doppler!!


and the sound of our little one’s heartbeat is truly the sweetest thing.
