I think tracking your numbers at home is a good idea. It will give you peace-of-mind, too. As far as your midwife dropping you...that's weird, right? I just met one of the midwives at the birth center I'll be going to and she said I am allowed to turn down any test. It's my choice. I suppose it depends on liability laws in each state? Isn't that what going to a midwife is all about-having the pregnancy and birth you want?
