Well I had my first prenatal visit yesterday. The dr. seems really nice and I really think I like her. It is such a different experience than with a midwife and I do miss my midwife but this dr seems like a good alternative. She is all for allowing me to try to have a VBAC and wants me to think about being carefully induced at around 39 weeks (if I have started dilating) so I will have a smaller baby and a better chance at a successful VBAC. She did a sonogram but the way was a little small still to be able to get any kind of info, but I got to see the babys heartbeat. The dr said besides the heartbeat the only thing she could really tell was that there was only one baby. So next month we will have a complete comprensive sonogram and hopefully be able to tell what this little baby is. I was quite nervous about this appointment and how this dr would feel about me using a midwife and having big babies and such, as most of the drs I have come into contact with here in San Antonio are very much anti-midwife, anti-VBAC, anti-big babies, etc. I feel very much reliefed that this dr seems to be none of these things and it looks like I will have a chance to have a VBAC rather than another c-section. God has seen fit to lead us to the right dr.
