Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
I had my first home visit from my midwife yesterday. I was really looking forward to it! I love my midwife– she is friendly, understanding, and assertive without being pushy. She’s always cheerful and puts me in a good mood when I see her. She has been WONDERFUL about my size. She doesn’t weigh me, because I have such anxiety about it… She understands that I’m trying not to have my weight be the focus of this pregnancy. Instead, we talk about what I’m eating and how I can focus on making healthy choices. I look forward to my visits with her, and it has been SO NICE and stress free! I’ve had a great pregnancy- no issues at all. Even now at 34 weeks, my only complaints are heartburn and pressure/Braxton-Hicks.
Everything was going well, I thought, but then she mentioned that the OB that works with them looked over my chart and isn’t happy that I haven’t been weighed.
