For those of you who haven’t seen my other blog to hear the news, we are expecting baby #2 in June!! We are really thankful for this new addition to our family and excited that Kaelyn and her baby brother or sister will be so close in age – about 20 months apart.
I am just starting my second trimester and starting to feel more like myself again. I was fortunate enough to not be too nauseous during the first trimester, but I was extremely tired. I’m not really starting to show yet, but I’ll be taking belly pictures along the way and posting them to show how I’m progressing along.
I have chosen to see a midwife for this pregnancy that works as a part of an OB/GYN practice and delivers at the local hospital. So far, I feel really good about it and will let you know more about my experience with seeing a midwife as this pregnancy progresses. I can tell you already that I really appreciate her approach to the labor and delivery process. She seems to be much more accommodating to what the mother wants to do during labor and delivery as far as moving around and not being monitored and being able to push and birth the baby in whatever position you desire. She also is a strong advocate for water birth, and the hospital I will be at has birthing tubs in each labor and delivery room. I’m not sure how I feel about that idea yet, we’ll see once it gets closer to the time. I am looking forward though to having another natural delivery and excited to welcome this new little life into the world to join our family!!
