Homebirth Midwife is a go!

We hired Cori (the midwife I spoke about in the previous post). She came on Monday for our first appointment. She took all my medical history, blood pressure, blood samples, etc. Soleil is already starting her training to become a midwife. She loved trying out the stethoscope, she felt my glands on my neck after Cori did and she was SO interested in all of Cori's equipment. We weren't able to hear a heartbeat yet but only being 8 weeks we were really pushing it even trying. I have been feeling ok. I wouldn't say I have had morning sickness, but often I don't feel 100%...more like 80%. I have been taking all of Soleil's naptimes as opportunities to nap myself...which is what I should be doing right now! I do get quite sleepy by this time of the day. Soleil is still getting up at least once a night....although last night she was up 4 times!!! She has also apparently been preparing herself for back-to-school since she has been getting up before 7AM! We bought some books about babies and have been pointing to my abdomen and telling her there is a little baby in there. She likes to point to her belly and say there is a baby too. I don't think I am ready to be a grandparent yet! He-he.
