Nurse Midwife

So I really wasn't loving (or even liking) the doctor I was seeing, and I had wanted to find a midwife. But I didn't know where to look, or how it would work with insurance, and where to deliver etc etc....

The hospital I was already going to had a midwife section so I made an appoint and went and saw them, and I really didnt get any different feel between them and the doctor.

Lucky for me a women came in to get her hair done and after chatting with her for about an hour I found out she was a midwife. She gave me tons of information and recommended me to the American Fork hospital nurse midwives (since we (greg) really wanted me to deliver in an actual hospital).

I finally got around to making an appointment with them and went in this morning to check it out.
There office was really nice, and all the staff. They have 6 midwives there that you switch around with, meet all of them and then whoever is on call when you go into labor delivers you.
We met with Roberta today and she was AWESOME. Exactly what Id been looking for. She talked to us. She asked us questions. She answered my questions, in detail. And was just really nice and animated and seemed alot more hands on then the other stinky doctor.
She told me a little about the two different hospitals they deliver at.
She showed me some stretches to do for my back pain, and demonstrated them for us. She was pretty flexible!
I think mostly she just made me feel comfortable and welcome so I could actually not be nervous and remember what I wanted to ask.

She measured me up, im at 23 inches
and we got to hear the heartbeat, always fun.

Next appointment I get to drink the yummy diabetes sugar test drink! Cant wait :-P

The office seemed pretty busy for 9 in the morning, and G overheard someone saying how slow it was today, so I guess there is usualy a big wait.
But I'd rather wait there then get in fast to the other place

20 weeks 2 days

Half way there!
We went to an appointment yesterday and did another ultrasound, and its still a girl! Yay! I've felt from the beginning it was a girl.
Yesterday during her ultrasound she was kicking and flipping all around! It was really cool to see her moving around since last time we had to try and wake her up by poking my stomach, which only woke her for a second (enough to see the sex) then she was asleep again.
She was measuring right at 20 weeks and we got some cool pics.
I thought I could feel her moving around the last couple days but wasn't sure if it was her or just my bubbly stomach.
Last night I woke up about a million times (annoying) and one of the times I could defiantly feel her pressed up right below my bellybutton kicking away. It was so cool.
Ive gained a few more lbs, according to my bathroom scale im up to 116.
No strong or strange cravings, just fruits and veggies calling my name. I always have apples in stock, but I really want a juicy peach or a nectarine. Only problem is if I remember to buy them when im at the store they're all eaten within a day or two.
Oh Ive also been eating alot of celery with peanut butter, yuuuuummm!

Names are to hard to think of and agree on!
