I have my first appointment with my midwife tomorrow. I am so excited, but a little nervous as I don't know what to expect. I am planning a water birth at home. My husband and I watched "The Business of Being Born" and it solidified our decision to plan a midwife attended, home birth. I am reading "The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth". Very informative. I want to make sure I have all the resources to choose the best birth for me and my little one.

I think all of this is finally sinking in. I am feeling great and enjoying being pregnant. I am so happy to be done with school. I have a lot planned for the summer. I want to make sure the house is cleaned and organized before I go back to school in August since I won't have a lot of time during the school year to get things in order.

I met with my midwife for the first time a couple of weeks ago. She has the same pendant that my mother bought me in Italy. I felt this was a sign and she's awesome. I am going for my first appointment next week.

The last day of school was really tough. We said goodbye to five teachers. It was unbelievably sad. I am blessed that my job was spared. I wish my friends the very best and hope they are able to find something bigger and better.
