Billie2 how funny was that moment with the claustrophobic lady in the toilet! LOL Anyway, I'm still going to primary for 1 visit, then I'm not sure what I'll do. Maybe make an appt. at the hospital?? So if anyone will be there Wedn at 11.45 we can still bump into each other!
@Danymatthew I would be booking in for an Obstetrician quick smart (they tend to book out quick, only taking on so many patients per month) or check your local hospital if you don't choose private. I think they have midwife programs. Its all a matter of money and/or preference. Good luck!!
Thanks Billie. I'll definitely do it next week, after the primary appt. I will go public to RWH in Randwick as no one I know has ever been disappointed. I'm a bit confused about normal dr, midwives, shared care and so on..I'll just wait to share the news to ask my friends with babies for some advises! but it's still to early and we want to see if all will keep going well!
@Danymatthew. It is a bit confusing with the kind of care that's available for women. We went with shared care at RPA because we thought we could save some money thinking we were both pretty healthy. The care we got from the midwives were excellent.. Not so much from my GP. So if we are successful this cycle we will be booking in my OB.
You're not wrong about RWH.. Everyone I know who had their babies there love it. So good choice!
Agree, I know alot that have been there and it is very good. I had my son at St George Private. It was like a hotel, was very happy but having an Ob is pricey.
Feck, feck, feck... Don't know what to do ~ light brown discharge started about 2 hours ago... Currently 10dpo... Thinking it's just AF being nasty and throwing my plans completely out the window. Will POAS first thing tomorrow incase it's IB (how bloody amazing would that be if it was a BFP!! But not getting my hopes up just yet). Mean to be working tomorrow until 12pm ~ sooo not even ready to head to Sydney and there are no local laverty's open after 12pm here incase AF rears her ugly head and decides to come full steam ahead, the no laverty's seem to be open on Sunday either so what happens if I physically can't do a blood test until Monday? Has this screwed up my entire cycle or is there room for a day or 2 difference? Crap... Better start getting organised just incase huh! Wasn't planning on leaving home until Monday at the earliest, now might have to leave Sunday to do a BT first thing Monday morning!
