I'll be going back Sept 20 and I'm going to sign up for group prenatal care, which is a service the midwife group offers for women with normal pregnancies. You meet with other women with similar due dates for a couple hours each session, where you'll each get some private time with the midwife, and have some group discussion, etc. You learn how to take your own BP and weight and enter it each time. It sounds interesting. My midwife said, "It's good to have women in there like you who've done this before." Sounds like I'm an old-timer or something :) Maybe I can teach these youngins a thing or two.

We had our second appt. today and got to see our new little babe. I'm a few days over 10 weeks and the baby was very squirmy and had a nice fast heartbeat. Everything looked healthy so far and there was only ONE in there, so I'm happy ;) I tested positive for group B strep in my urine again (had it with both my previous girls), so I'm now taking a 10 day round of amoxicillin and I'll have to be on IV antibiotic during labor (again). I just can't get away from IV's. Oh well, it was so nice to see our little one moving and growing away in there. I can't wait to get to feel him/her for myself.
