I felt meh yesterday. Lots of tugging and pulling. Today? Nothing! Just a little more tired than usual.


I have good news though! I got into my midwives that delivered my last two! (they are super busy and turn lots of people away).

Hot flushes suck aknqtpie, I hope you get some reprieve from them.

I haven't been getting flushes as such, but I have been waking up drenched in sweat. I forgot about this wonderful part of pregnancy. Lol.

That's great news Parkep! I'm a little sad as the midwife I had from first appt to postnatal care with DD has now retired. We still bump into her around the village sometimes though which is nice. I just hope her replacement is nice!

I would like to join! EDD July 23rd!

This will be me and DH's first and I am completely going at this blind as I have no idea what to do! Nervous, scared, excited!

What is the difference between midwide and OBGYN, do you have both? Any good pregnancy websites/apps you can recommend?

Excited to join this amazing group of ladies, already spoke with some of you in order forums so excited to continue the journey with you!! xoxoxo

Hey TTC! Nice to have you over here!

I don't really know how it works in the states so I'll let one of the other ladies answer that. Here, we only have midwives unless you are considered high risk pregnancy, but even then you're split between consultant and midwife. Unless you are high risk or there are complications during labour, you don't have a Dr present during delivery in the UK.

I'm not overly sure about apps, I've downloaded a few but haven't come to love one yet. There are a lot out there to choose from though.

Im in Canada, so may be different. You only see one or the other unless you need to see an ob or specialist for special circumstances. Usually your midwive is still your primary caregiver.

The difference in care i found astronomical. They actually knew my name. I wasnt just a number. They seem to care and take their time with every appointment. Everything is your choice. They don't force you into any testing, or procedures. And i wasnt waiting 2 hours for a 10 mins appointment.

I'm in the US and I don't know the difference really but I know there's an option. My doctor is an ob/gyn but I will be seeing a midwife on Thursday as my doctor was super booked! But I'm hoping to have my ob/gyn be my regular doctor. I use the ovia pregnancy app. I used the ovia app to help me track my af and ovulation and then when I got my positive I was able to switch to the pregnant app. So they work for me! I am just as nervous as this is my first but I am so excited as well!

To answer your question TTC the main different is background. A midwife comes from a nursing background but goes back to grand school and lots and lots of additional training to focus on Gyne/OB related things.

A OB went to medical school.

They do the same thing except midwives can't do C-sections.

Excellent care from both!!!

My head is killing me today. My boobs went up a size already. I'm gonna need to buy new bras. I'm a 32a and my boobs are miserable in my bras. I dug out a few bras I had buried in my drawer from when I was a bit heavier. Thank god I saved those.
The only time this headache felt better was when I went for my run. Which is weird... but also good!!

We are heading now to sign some paperwork. We decided to build a house!!! I'm very excited as we don't own right now and have been dying for our own house! It will be fun!

Hope you guys are feeling well...

Thank you for the answers! I think I am going with an OBGYN, meeting with her in Dec for my 8 week check-up. I heard of women using midwifes, doula's and/or OB's here in the states.

This tiredness is kicking my ass today! We went to a Christmas fair at the high school this morning, since we've got back I've just wanted to nap. It still hasn't sunk in yet. I'm sure it sunk in a lot quicker with DD. This time it just still feels very surreal.
