Ah Shadow, sounds like you had a tough one, hope this time it goes a little more smoothly xx I know exactly what you mean about the gas!
Blotched, I need a to start ttc and then we'll have to decide I guess! Maybe look into the options close to home, at least you could be home quickly. Let us know how you go xx

It sounds really eventful...but the staff were good, and explained everything....and we just went with the flow. I figured they were the professionals so would know best.
The only time I remember feeling scared was when they wanted to take blood from him, from his scalp, while he was still in there to check for infection... Apparently its not something they do regularly because I lost count of how many students ob/mw who asked if they could be there :/ they never did do it though, not sure why, or maybe they did lol it was after the epi so I felt nothing and just wanted to sleep. It was late monday night, id been awake since sunday morning.
But I like to think we handled it well. I never felt like it was traumatic, just done what we thought was best. Our bf issues was more traumatic for me.

Though I'm certain obs are much more competent than the average doctor ...but i'm worried about how many we might need to see to find the right one...
I've heard bfing is hard. Its probably something i would ask my mum about, she was pretty good at it.

Shadow, I want my next birth to be nearly exactly the same as DS's. The one thing I want to do differently is go into labor naturally. and maybe avoid an eisotomy. That made sex uncomfortable for like 6months after. I was induced last time due to a sudden spike in high blood pressure. I had every faith in my midi and my doctor. They were fantastic. I really want the same midi again but I guess its just luck when labor starts who is on.
Blotched, I found my doctor straight away, He was recommended by my sil. So you may get lucky too!
Jessy how is the counting going? I think I am still on track, no chocolate anyway!
Thanks Can't wait, I couldn't sleep last night thinking way too much. Have you started looking at names yet?
Disney how are you going? are you still tired?

Ill be delivering in an entirely different state to my first so I have no hope of the same midwife or any of that.
That's why I am choosing to have a private one; in case any one is wondering why I don't just take myself off to the hospital run midwifery program, it's because I'm not eligible. My son was born at 35+6 after a stress-induced spontaneous rupture of the membranes. He spent 12 days in special care before coming home.
I guess the important thing that I want everyone heading into labour at the end of the year is to remember: you can say No.
My midwife (who was from the community practice I was part of, not the hospital, even though I had to be in the hospital instead of the birth suite) kept reminding me, whenever the hospital staff tried to intervene, that I could say no, and she advocated for me. Things I remember in particular was that my hand cannula was put in wrong for the penicillin they give you 4x during premmie labour, so once she realised that (2 bags later) she took it out an tried to reposition it with no luck. It was horrid. So she reminded I could say no to anything at any time, and I said no. End of painful IV.
The nurses wanted me on the bed for Foetal monitoring and internals. Middy said no, got me wireless monitors so I could keep pacing.
After everything (my middy was brilliant in convincing me to actually birth) the same student doctor who effed up my cannula wanted to stitch me up. My middy said no, and she did them (a fantastic job) herself.
So you need to know your middy is in your corner and that she knows exactly what you want. She is invaluable. So different to a FIFO hospital middy!

Trio - yay on being given the all clear to ttc! When do you start???
As for the type of birth, I think it was shadow who went with the flow? I'm doing that too. I don't have a particular thing I do or don't want when it comes to birthing, so long as the baby gets out of my body happy and healthy, how that happens i dont care about too much. I'm just going to listen to my Ob and do what they say. I know lots of people wouldn't agree with that but I'm happy with it. If I need an epi that's cool too and if doc says I need a c section then ill trust their judgement. That's what's I'm paying him for.. His opinion and knowledge and I trust him.
