One Born Every Minute

Does anyone watch this show. I only just heard about it.
We don't have cable so not like I would hear about it lol.
Watching episodes online and good lord... I'm a blubbering mess watching this show from beginning to end.
What really gets me is that first cry of the baby and that calm when the baby is on the mother's chest and just stares. It's so amazing and sigh... I want that so much.

Anywho, been looking up info on the hospitals here and good lord I have NO idea what the hell I'm doing rofl.
No one prepares you for this. I have no idea what to look for or what I want.
I mean I found a birth center that has gotten a lot of great reviews, but 1, I have no idea where it is and how far away it is, and 2... I don't know if I'd even be able to see a midwife b/c I'm not sure if I'd be considered high risk.
UGH
I think I'm just gonna go with my gyn/ob. I'll have to talk to DH about it but I know he's gonna be useless and just tell me to go wherever I want. Sigh....

MS has really kicked it up a notch today. I'm still not throwing up or anything and really not all that nauseous, but my gagging is out of control. Nothing is even making me gag, it just comes on suddenly. Sipping on some ginger ale. Not sure if it's gonna help any but we'll see.

Oh I'm so nervous about telling my mom today. Part of me just wants to wait, but the majority wants to tell her. I don't even think it's telling her specifically... I just want to tell someone, ya know?
DH and I have been through so much alone.. it will be nice to have someone to share this with now.
And thinking about telling everyone else makes me SUPER nervous. That's still a month away which feels like forever right now.

Well, anyway.... I'll stop rambling. One last thing...
I just want to thank everyone that has stuck with me through all of this. You're all so amazing and you'll never know just how much I appreciate the support.
Who knew that some texts on a computer monitor from people hundreds to thousands of miles away could be so comforting.

I watch that show sometimes. It can irritate me, but more because of the stuff that's said. The dumbest thing I've ever heard a NURSE say was when a woman was waiting to deliver boy/girl twins. The nurse asked if they were identical...

You still have plenty of time to prepare and do research! You'll figure it out! :)

That show sucks me in...big time. I'm either cringing at the people who have NO problem getting pregnant or crying at the stories of success after infertility. But I do enjoy that show!
