    Hehe I went in to speak at an antenatal class & a midwife training day on Waterbirth with Wendy small world, she was lovely.

    Is it a 2nd fixed bath or just a new one?

    You want a quicker labour, I should be careful what I wish for, no quicker for me please! It was intense, first tightenings at 12.30am but went back to sleep. Dd was kicking up a storm so was up at 2am, did a load of washing at 4am noticed at 6am they were regular but didn't want to page the mw too early on a Sunday morning for what I thought were Braxton hicks! Eventually paged them at 7am, (I thought this was semi decent for a Sunday) got in there at 8.45am, and hopped straight in the bath where dd was born a couple of hours later.

    Oh man, now I'm thinking about it too much freak me out before I even have an official edd!

    I actually seriously can't wait for labour. Everyone I've spoken to is saying it's what they fear most, I'm actually looking forward to it. Does that make me weird lol.
    I was reading up on this place and there's only one bathroom is that right? Does that mean that if someone is labouring at the same time only one can use the bathroom?

    Not weird at all, I couldn't wait for labour either. I had a home birth. I must admit it was probably harder than I ever could have imagined, however that made me all the more proud afterwards that I got through it. I'm excited to do it again, I just hope it's a little shorter this time!

    Wow that was a lot of reading lol. I called the uni clinics and I can get my crowns done there ( if the root canal price is anything to go by I could get all I need for the price of one at a private dentist and I just reinstated my health insurance. No excess and I'm covered for heaps so that should keep me going. Also a good reason to get it so I can go private as I'm not too keen on my local hospital ( I'm a princess and want my own room so I'll have to pay through the *** for it I guess)

    Why do morons insist on doing burnouts on the highway at ridiculous hours of the morning, waking the entire neighborhood? Seriously, its 1:30 & now I can't get back to sleep if its not 1 thing its another

    Crafty - that sounds promising. Hopefully you can sort something more manageable cost wise.

    Mrst - they also have a couple of inflatable birth pools if the bath in the main bathroom is being used. There are only 4 rooms in the centre so I think you'd be pretty unlucky to miss out on at least a pool as well if that's what you wanted

    Hers that sounds a bit exciting haha. Though there's often tears with quick births, and bubs is usually so stunned and dazed afterwards.

    I want more than anything; 1) water (doesn't have be during birth itself, as long as I get it leading up), 2) low interference (I think the best person to know what's going on is going to be me, simply because I'm the only one to feel it?) and 3) an attentive midwife who can help lead breathing etc and affirmation over drugs. Oh and of course the bugger off and leave us alone. He will still weigh the same in an hour or two!

    I'm the same as u Michelle in a way... I feel like an epi will be cheating, or at least cheating myself if that makes sense. Though I think if u need gas to take the edge off so u can focus better, then that's a-ok in my books. I think it's good they didn't offer it, if it's not in ur head you will be less likely to need it.

    Eww!

    Hopefully_a_fertile_mertile I was only $250 out of pocket with my OB for DS1, I just found a no-gap OB

    Colbie another homebirther here won't be homebirthing this time though.

    I am tossing up between going 'natural' and having gas. Or an epidural..but I'm worried about the cascade of intervention, I really do not want a c/s because I had one! It's a harder decision when it's not your baby I think, with my kids I was like nope no drugs at all! Now I am like- bring.it.on I swore after DD I would not do labour again, it's ****ing hard! But if I can have drugs I would..I just can't pick which ones lol. I think the BC is way too far for me to travel in labour though I know I could have a waterbirth and gas there...

    We are in the middle of sorting out counselling appointments and psychiatric assessments, we have the one counselling session (and specialist appointment) on the 28th of November and we are trying to squeeze both a Psych and counselling session in between the 17th and 23rd of December!
