    My bestie is a midwife at my local hospital so luckily for me she hooked me up with a caseload midwife (I'm going public) so I didn't have to think too hard. I did struggle to book future appointments (like my NT) because I was terrified I would miscarry. I clearly remember getting a reminder text from the u/s place last year for what should've been LJs NT scan, and I've been a bit scarred from that.

    Public you don't see your care provider until after the nuchal scan anyway and they have to accept you if you're local (although if you want to do caseload you've gotta get in early) but I'm not sure about an Ob as I've never used one!)

    Unfortunately our local hospital does not deliever babies (terrifying prospect when a lady comes into work in labor!) The nearest delivering hospital is 300km - simple non complicated deliveries - with the ability for c-sections in emergencies. The nearest hospital I'll be able to deliver at is 600km from home. It seems terrifically daunting now!
    So i guess my morning off will be researching birthing options in Adelaide

    Eeek! That does seem daunting! Will you be spending your final weeks local to the hospital? Yeah I suppose all that stuff all needs to be sorted out! Let us know how you get on though! It will be interesting to hear what you have to do! It's completely new territory for me so I'm a complete amateur! Although I kinda like that this will be a brand new experience for us 😊

    Likewise, we are both amatuers... my sister want to be 'helpful' given she has 2 kiddos already....
    The rules of living in the middle of nowhere are that at 35weeks you have to leave town.... if you stay and have to fly out there is the rumor that the flying docs bill you directly for their service

    Oh wow!! I'm sure that wouldn't be a nice bill to receive! Have you got someone you guys can stay with or will you need to splash out on a hotel or holiday house? You'll probably feel better being more local to a hospital too!

    Hopefully the hospital can recommend something when you explain the situation and the distance you will be travelling.

    @Kazzy36 if you are going private choose which hospital you want to deliver at in Adelaide then research their lists of obstetricians with delivering rights at their hospital. Generally with private it's ideal to have picked your ob between 6-12weeks as they can get busy.

    Our fertility specialist is an OB too so our choice was simple. Once you've narrowed it down call their office and get pricing and arrange to meet your top OBs, you will know if they are a good fit for you and DP. Good
    Luck with your research.

    So appointment went really well. Got the green light to go just waiting on the city fertility to call me there just double checking we dont have to do counselling again.
    My FS reckons i was in the middle of ovulating from what she saw from my scan and having pains the last couple of days. So it was the best time for a scan and she was actually excited to see.
    So basically start in 2 weeks when my cycle starts again. 😊

    Oh how exciting!! Good luck to you and @gillpill. Wishing you both a smooth journey :-)

    That would have been pretty exciting to see! I love seeing ultrasounds haha
