9 weeks and counting

Standard

Well as you all know I have been wanting to do my own prenatal care. I had two appointments with my OBGYN just to check on things. And even though I trust him it did make me anxious and worried for no absolute reason at all. I am now back to doing it on my own. This week I checked my stats and Im going to be ordering urine tests this weekend to check my protein and glucose levels in my urine. My fundal height is about 10-11 cms which means im measuring about a week or two ahead which is fine πŸ™‚ My blood pressure is 100/64 and I feel mostly really healthy just normal morning sickness. Well normal for me lol I usually throw up once or twice a day. That past two days have been good though πŸ™‚

J and I have been talking about what kind of birth we want. I will be coming back to arizona from germany to have the baby. We are pretty much set on a homebirth and now just deciding whether we want a midwife to attend or not. The reason I am coming home is because J will be deploying sometime before baby comes. But this weekend Im going to order some books to do some research and see what I really want and feel comfortable with. Will wrtie in the next few days with a more complete update.
