WOW!!! I can’t believe it, Ok, ok, I *can *believe it, I saw it [the baby] on the sonogram. Life is good, I’m very happy, we are very happy, jobs are great all is good - but I’ve got questions, lot’s of questions!!
Mrs. Phlosphr and I are very healthy, but the first trimester was horrible for her. Lot’s of morning sickness, afternoon sickness and nighttime sickness - the Doc and Midwife say that the baby is pulling lots of energy from mom, and being a first time mom she is reacting…So we have heard to take some ginger in various forms, citrus in various forms and keep the food coming - even something I call “Pregnancy Toast” which is toast for Mrs. P, before she get’s out of bed. That seems to help.
Any other suggestions for morning sickness?
Also, another hard question that is becoming ever more present:
Why do Dr’s appear to get offended when we bring up home birth and utilizing a midwife? The doc mentioned safety and how unsafe a homebirth is, but Mrs. P and I are quite aware people and have done a lot of research. There is a Business to being born and we are quite aware of that. We also understand that there are risks to home birth, and Mrs.P may have complications that force us to be at the Hospital - but there is also a chance everything will be fine and we can labor and deliver at home. The Docs don’t seem to understand that.
For now that is about it -WOW a new dad! SO PSYCHED!!
