Have you given your plan to your doctor yet? 

I'm sitting down and typing mine up right now. 

The very first three things are going to be:

Glenda, My grandmother will hold both twins first, no ifs ands ors about it, me and Brandon have already agreed to it. 

I will eat in labor. 

Delayed cord clamping. 


If I don't put that my grandmother holds the twins first, his mom will want to hold them first.

No. Giving birth in Army hospitals is odd. Whoever is on duty is who delivers. Doesn't matter if you have seen that OB before or not!

That's how the hospital was where I delivered my daughter!!!

I better put that in there, that I want the OB I see the most deliver.

Ask your OB what the policy is at his practice. With my first, whoever was on call delivered. With the OB I have now, the only drs in his practice are him and his wife. So they take turns being on call. His wife delivered Ariel and I'm as happy with her as I am him.

You can tell them that you don't want the fluids, but do an IV, in case something happens.

I am going to tomorrow. 

When I was going to Hershey, (Yes the place they make Hershey chocolate bars, they have a hospital lol)

i had asked back in Jan, when I went in for my pap, and they said they all take turns being on call. 

But when I had my oldest, I had NEVER met the OB who delivered, and I had students helping.

I'm going to work on everything I want in the next few days. I'll probably come here asking if any of you would add to it in case it's something I forgot.

Yeah, I am still adding to my list, and will go over it with my hubs tonight.

No, they don't look at them until third trimester and I'm just printing out the one I had for my daughter, as that covered everything and worked really well.
