Im going private with Dr Basheer. Meet her Monday 28th. We moved from Albury so had to go with whoever I could get into. Hope she is good.
Fingers crossed your little munchkin stays put for a while. My daughter was 10 weeks early and we were holidaying in NZ so we spent 9 weeks in NICU before the drs would let her fly. So if you need to talk about prem babies I can help a little. Looking forward to getting to know you too.

Hi ladies, I had my little girl in March and went private with Dr Greening. He was amazing!
I had a low risk, drama free pregnancy but ended up having a c section due to breech baby and then developed pre eclampsia on the day of my c section! Ended up in intensive care for 4 days...
Dr Greening was there every day checking in on me and visited me every day after that in the maternity ward until I went home. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him.

Hi Ekos and future ma, great to see more Wollongong mums on here :-)
Angenrod, great to hear you are still travelling well. Love to hear the baby is defying the odds and proving everyone wrong :-)

So I realise this post was started a while ago, I am almost identical to Kimnus, also from Cordeaux Heights and due 18th September! I am going with the MGP at Wollongong hospital and am very happy with them so far. I love that if I have a concern I can just ring them and not have to worry about making an appointment, going in to see the doc etc. Is anyone else here going with them?
I am hoping for a natural drug free birth, hopefully a waterbirth if the bath at wollongong is big enough lol!

Hi all new ladies!
I'm with the MGP, but due in July. Very happy with it so far, but not sure if you can do a waterbirth at Wollongong public? Maybe ask your midwife about their homebirth option, if you really want?
I've got 10 weeks left, cannot wait!
Also, just found the Facebook group...for those having difficulty, search bubhub Illawarra and it should appear.

Hi ladies- what is MGP? Sounds like they are into deal with. I will search for the fb group too.
Welcome saralou. I'm not far from you, I'm in Unanderra. I have 4 kids, ranging from 15-8. 3 are step kids, only 1 is actually mine. I'm raising them all though. This will be my second bub, but 5th child in the family (if u know what I mean). I'm due Aug 30th but will most likely deliver early to mid august.

cakeish you can do waterbirth at wollongong, but they are bathtubs, not birthing pools as such. So there is one room that has its own and then another one is apparently in the hallway or something? eek... haha not sure about that! Who knows what may happen on the day though You must be so excited with only 10 weeks to go! Who is your midwife? I have Yvonne she is great so far.
Argenrod MGP is midwifery group practice (I think!) they only take around 360 places a year so I had to get in very early (7 weeks I believe it was) and its where you have the same midwife all the way through the pregnancy, delivery and after bubs is born. I really preferred it to the ob option where I won't really know who will be with me for half/all of my delivery. Could get a crabby ward midwife or a lovely one and being a first time mum I couldn't handle it if I got a nasty one
Wow you must be amazing to be raising all those children
Seeing as I am only new here I would like to search your posts to know why you are likely to deliver early rather than make you explain again but not sure if I can figure that out just yet!...

Hi saralou- nah that's ok, in a nutshell, the gestational sac from 7 weeks was 2 weeks behind in growth. So my baby was measuring 7w5d and the sac surrounding him was measuring 5w4d. So had to have weekly scans to 13 weeks. They said to prepare for the worst, but praise God, we got there! Then at the NT results, the scan looked fine but my bloods were extremely bad. I had 1:3 of downs, 1:55 and 1:108 for trisomy 18 &13, both which are fatal abnormalities. Had to have a CVS and the specialist told us we had a 99.9% chance of the baby being abnormal. Praise God again, specialist was wrong and all tests came back great! Then we discover baby has a two vessel cord instead of the normal 3. So from 13 weeks, I've had fortnightly scans. My doc still said he didn't think I'd get to 24 weeks but to hope for the best! Once again, God is good, as I'm now at 25 weeks!! Doc thinks there are many reasons why I will have an IUGR baby. I also had pre eclampsia in my last pregnancy.
Thanks for explaining MGP! I've never heard of them. Sorta jealous now!! They sound great.
Hope your doing well!

oh wow you have really been through it haven't you Looks like someone above is looking after your baby-to-be though! I guess you wouldn't have been able to go with the MGP anyway as you would definately be classified high risk... So how is bubs measuring now? Have you had any signs of pre-eclampsia this time?
Yes I am well thanks, everything has been ok with me and my bubs, besides HG in first trimester that put me in hospital on the drip after not keeping even sips of water down for days, and 2 bouts of gastro (which made one more emergency ward visit) and other than that just that I was quite nervous for my nuchal ultrasound as my little sister had downs syndrome, and 2 holes in her heart at birth, she got a pacemaker and was one sick little bubby. She only made it to 20 months, we lost her when I was only 5 (this is 20 years ago though, so medical technology has come A LONG way), so I was scared of having increased chances but luckily the tests came back clear. I didn't want to do a CVS or amnio based only on the family history unless the indicator test showed high risk but its really low so I'm happy with that. I would of kept it anyway, I love him/her already just from ultrasound views, I guess you can only look on the bright side that you get to see bubby often on ultrasound..... Best of luck I'd love to keep updated
