It's expensive you know! We have health insurance but the health care system here sucks.
I think that now the doc's want me to go in every 2 weeks or something, that's alot! I don't remember going in that often when I had my first daughter, nor do I remember all these tests.
Well that's my complaint for the day. Also, just so you know, I am very thankful to be healthy and that our baby is healthy.

Catholic people out there!
Here is something from Dr.Ron Paul's own website about life:
The right of an innocent, unborn child to life is at the heart of the American ideals of liberty. My professional and legislative record demonstrates my strong commitment to this pro-life principle.
In 40 years of medical practice, I never once considered performing an abortion, nor did I ever find abortion necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman.
In Congress, I have authored legislation that seeks to define life as beginning at conception, HR 1094.
I am also the prime sponsor of HR 300, which would negate the effect of Roe v Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life. This is a practical, direct approach to ending federal court tyranny which threatens our constitutional republic and has caused the deaths of 45 million of the unborn.
I have also authored HR 1095, which prevents federal funds to be used for so-called “population control.”
Many talk about being pro-life. I have taken direct action to restore protection for the unborn.
As an OB/GYN doctor, I’ve delivered over 4,000 babies. That experience has made me an unshakable foe of abortion. Many of you may have read my book, Challenge To Liberty, which champions the idea that there cannot be liberty in a society unless the rights of all innocents are protected. Much can be understood about the civility of a society in observing its regard for the dignity of human life.
You can read more here although, it's most probably too late because you didn't vote for him, which is ridiculous. Electing a pro life candidate is a huge thing if you are a Catholic or have conservative views.
There is no perfect candidate, I know and I am not saying that he is either.
Where you still have the chance to vote for him, you should do it, for goodness sake!!

The business of being born
In this video it says that midwives are normally the ones attending to the person in labor. When I had my first daughter, I had one midwife, a doctor and 2 medical students all checking up on me and my daughter, and when I went to my OB/GYN I was with him for most of the appointment, I must admit that now when I go, it's mainly the nurses and about 5-10 minutes with the OB/GYN.
