First Dr Appointment today! UPDATE POST 8? OR 9?? LOL

And Im really nervous. I dont know why because I didnt have any spotting, not alot of bad cramping, I have morning sickness. . . etc. . All normal symptoms and I dont really have reason for concern, but none the less Its nerve racking. If you pray please say a prayer for us and our little bean today that everything is growing like its supposed to. We are getting a ultrasound too so Ill share it when we get back!

Oh and we are also going to ask the OB if she would consider being a "backup" dr since we are planning a homebirth with a midwife. I am really nervous about what she will say also. I think she will be ok but ya never know.

Re: First Dr Appointment today!

Im back!!! Appointment went well, Baby is strong and healthy and right on my dates of 8 weeks 1 day!! Strong heartbeat of 162!!
And I know a few of us thought there might be two since I am sporting this ginormous tummy- - - -Lol. There is only ONE!

The OB did have some concern because I still have scar tissue from my wicked tears from DDs birth. She said the amount I have and all makes it highly likely I would tear the same spot again. Not that its 100% sure I would but she said I have a much higher risk of tearing. And since it was such a bad tear last time and we had a homebirth and had to transfer and everything to stitch me it was soo tramatic we are now considering having the baby with my OB at the Hospital. Its definetly NOT what I wanted to do, I am a homebirther at heart but the risk seem to outweigh the benefit of staying at home. We havent made a decision yet but hubs and I are both feeling uneasy about the whole tearing transfer thing happening again.
So Im a little bummed about that but oh well. My OB dr is wonderful! She is so amazing and she wasnt the least put off by the fact that were are even considering a homebirth this time.. She said she is more then happy to work with me and follow a birth plan. So I think it would be fine.
