So my doctors appointment was pretty uneventful, no blood test or anything. But I got a call today from the midwives and I am in for a midwife! This is great because here in Canada it's pretty tough to get a midwife and I'd really like to look into a home birth. So I'm really happy about getting in!

Joining you ladies here. Got my BFP tonight at 8dpo (I think)
I had a mc in August and haven't a period inbetween so I have just calculated my cycle based on the first day of bleeding.
Lines were quite dark so really hoping this one sticks!
Google tells me I am due May 19

I tried to apply on Alberta's website (You're in Alberta, right?) and got nowhere. Uncertain it even worked.

Ya I am in Alberta, I had to go through the process twice, the first time I hit next after last page and it just exited out. Then I tried again and that time it went through to a confirmation page, and sent me a confirmation email. Maybe try again if you don't think it went through

Maybe. I'm not convinced yet a midwife is right for me. I was reading about some at a birthing center website around here and was kind of put off seeing that they do reiki. I'm a full-on sciency person (no offense to anyone who believes in reiki) so I'm not entirely certain I'll be comfortable.

Plus I'm not certain yet if I'm going to want an epidural.

A friend of mine did say I should sign up and decide later.

A huge congratulations to you Mary Poppins!! Love seeing the dark lines. FX'd for a sticky rainbow baby

Home births are intriguing to me and I know a few people who have had them, but I am still too chicken

Maryp0ppins- Hi! Congrats on your BFP!! Keeping my fingers crossed that this one sticks! How far along were you when you had your MC? So sorry to hear, that must have been really hard.

Grateful- I'm also pretty nervous about the idea of the home birth, but I think that's just because we only really hear about hospital births so it's the fear of the unknown. I'm sure once I get more information from the midwives I'll feel more confident to make a decision.

Thanks everyone for the welcome
Yogi it was very early,5+5,really hoping this one is a healthy little bean.
Nice to see some more Canadians! I was born and raised just outside of Montreal. I moved to the UK nearly 10 years ago and I have since married a brit so it looks like I am here to stay.
Did another cheap walmart test with FMU about an hour ago and got a very solid line.
I have a digital in my drawer but will wait until my period is actually due to use it.
