so, the lovely midwife we met at the Homebirth Group last Saturday did my antenatal check up today and all is well. Yogi’s heart rate is great (are you listenening Boo), he/she’s nicely head down in a lovely position and growth seems fine.
although i know i could’ve managed without any further antenatal appointments i have to admit to being reassured, reassured that Yogi hasn’t turned Breech, that his heart rate is normal and that there is no suspicion that he’s either huge or tiny (not that i have huge amounts of faith in ‘growth estimates’ it all just makes me feel that much more comfortable with my decision to birth this baby at home.
So, thank you very much S for making me feel so much better, not just in terms of check up but also in your positive attitude to my decision and in your reassurance that whoever does come out to deliver Yogi will be fully aware of my decision, fully aware of my situation and fully happy to be there. Thank you for giving me back the chance to feel great about this.
