I'm using a midwife (covered by provincial healthcare!) because I wanted hand holding, I wanted the support of pregnancy and birth experts who are women, and I wanted the aftercare once the baby was born. So far they've been wonderful! At 8 weeks I had some bleeding and completely lost my mind. Within two minutes I had one of my midwives on the phone, reassuring me and setting up an ultrasound ASAP. It was fantastic.
I don't have any bump pics yet but I DO have an ultrasound pic. But it won't let me post it here...
I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth
