Baby Bump

Due Date : February 13th, 2012

[box]We are 5 months pregnant now, and I am feeling awesome. [/box]

The fresh mountain air, elevation, yoga, good food and hiking has done me good and I’m believing it will also influence the growth and health of the little one developing inside me. My belly is big enough now that I actually look and feel pregnant. Last week I felt the baby turn and move inside for the first time, which was extremely cool.

The midwife whose care we are under now, Peg Dunn CNM from Munson Hospital in Traverse City, MI said to us, “Giving birth is like running a marathon…you have to prepare your mind and body for it.” So with that in mind I am taking on this trip with an attitude of preparedness and motivation to push my body and mentally get ready.

Because we are traveling cross country, we have also been in contact with a Birthing Center and Midwife in Boise, Idaho. We have a consultation appointment with them on October 10th to see the facility, how they operate, as well as this months check up scheduled later that day. We are excited for this opportunity and level of care. They have been wonderfully accepting and supportive of our current lifestyle and working with us to care for us while we are out west.
