You know, making sure we know the way, figuring out how long it takes to get there, etc. :) I had a long talk with the two nurses on duty and they were very nice. Two things, though. One is that all the rooms were full and they had another mother waiting for a room! I had a feeling that would happen. Grrr... I hope it doesn't happen to us! And, the second is that they brought up something I hadn't thought of about the ultrasound, namely that it Could opt me out of the birth center if they think Benjamin is too big! Technically you can't birth there if the baby is over 9 lbs 12 0z. I'm thinking about just refusing the u/s... Especially since they are so wildly inaccurate! I may call my midwife and discuss this with her. Double Grrr!
