    LOVE that bed, LS! Wow, our toddler bed seems so boring now. :-) Not that I've moved her into it yet. Will tackle that before the baby arrives though!
    @Mamasupial, I was living in Canberra when I had ovulation induction but started with my GP who did lots of blood tests to check my hormone levels etc. I then waited a bit longer to see if AF came, and went back when it didn't and asked for a referral to a fertility specialist. Best to get some recommendations for Brisbane area from others on BH who have had it done up here.

    Basically, I took primulot to induce a period. Then started clomid when it came. Took a couple of goes to get the dosage right. But combined with regular ultrasounds throughout the cycle to check the follicles they could pin point when to give me a trigger shot so I would ovulate the next day. Just took a few months to get pregnant luckily. :-)

    Also, I'm disappointed today because my local birth centre won't accept me as a second VBAC. They are doing a trial for first time VBACs but I don't qualify. This sucks. Was assuming it was the same as my previous birth centre in Canberra!!!
    So my options are to go the usual route through birth suite and have no relationship with my midwife whatsoever, having probably never met her. Or hire a private midwife, because apparently my hospital can get me Medicare rebates for this now. Will look at how much this would cost me. Otherwise I'm thinking a doula would be good if it's more affordable, so I've got a continuous person as support throughout pregnancy and labour who knows what I want, besides DH who's emotionally involved.

    That sucks Bond. Doulas are a great option though. We do a fair bit of training

    Bond, what about a student midwife? They need to follow a certain number of pregnancies while they study. I've got a friend studying midwifery so I'm hoping to have her as my student midwife next time

    Yeah I had a 3rd year student last time and she was amazing. Wondering if I would have a phone number to contact the student like I did last time, so I can call when I go into labour and she can be there!! Will definitely look into that too. Thanks for reminding me.

    Toni, I forgot you were a doula! How is that going?
