240 - Checking In

Today Caryn had her monthly appointment at Alma. They started informing her of tests, measured her uterus and did the standard heartbeat checking of the baby. She is doing great and is really healthy. She is about 26 weeks.


We are getting more and more excited everyday to have a new person in our family. We're starting to get the room prepped and prepare ourselves.


Today we also discussed the +/- of having the baby with the midwives at our house instead of the birthing center. It all sounded very positive so I think we are currently going with that plan. We feel it will enable us to have all the comforts of our home and have a more memorable experience here in our own house. Plus, when Caryn goes into labor - she won't have to go anywhere! Also, if needed, we are literally only a few blocks from the hospital. Since the birthing center is pretty much a giant house anyway, we feel there isn't really a big difference.
