20 weeks

today is my halfway mark and time is moving both slow and fast. i think i'm ready to have my baby boy in my arms, but i know mentally and physically I'm far from prepared.

today we have our first midwifery appointment. picture old shed in the forest, with a wood burning stove and an old woman with buck teeth like Little House on the Prairie or even Anne of Green Gables time frame. Ok not really, midwifery has since advanced and even has a working facility in the University hospital. Of course women still have the option of giving birth at home, but we have chosen to give birth with midwifery center that is located in a hospital so we have some peace of mind in case anything abnormal occurs.

i love that women have so many options these days when giving birth and each woman has one that is perfect for them.
