Hi Nat My first was also posteria and it was a long labor and after pushing for about an hour they decided on a vacuum extraction they tried to turn her on the way out and she did but at the last second right before she came out. hope this one turns for you good luck

Hi Amandamc i had my first delivered through a public hospital with a midwhife for most but the actual delivery had to be done by a doctor because it ended up having to be a vacuum delivery. i am now pregnant with my second and me and my hubby decided we would go private for this one partly because we moved interstate but also for the care throughout the pregnancy. although the public system was good you can end up having a different midwife for each apptment depending on what hospital you are at. also i found when they had to call the doctor to assist with delivery this can be delayed becuase they are on call for everyone that is in labor at the same time. i went for my first apptmnt with the obstetrician last week and she was really nice and she also advised there will be midwifes at the delivery aswell also the midwives are trained by that particular obstetrician. you just need to be aware if you go private even if you have private health insurance there may still be some ou...

Hi i was induced for different reasons but it would also depend on how they induce you to how quick and fast the labour will happen. i think it's not necessarily that the contractions will be more painfull but they can get to the more painfull and closer together stage quicker than if you were to go into labour naturally. hope that made sence and helps

i had pethadine and it didn't help the pain for me at all but i think by the time i had it i was past where it would help because i had a long labour so i ended up having an eipdural.

my daughter is going through the same thing all her baby hair was really light except a patch at the back that was dark brown over the last couple of weeks she lost all her light hair and it is comming bwack through much darker and matching the dark patch so i think it is fairly normal but if you are worried i would get her checked out

Hi i just moved over to WA from Penrith NSW in november last year so my husband can start working on te mines as there is a lot of money there aswell. yes it is definatly a lot cheaper that NSW in the way of either renting or buying a house you can get a 4 bed 2 bath house for around 320,000 depending where you but of course some places are even cheaper than that and some more expensive too. with everything else like food petrol etc it is about the same price. we moved to a suburb called Beldon it is about 15 - 20 mins north of perth. this is a pretty good area to live some other suburbs in the area are joondalup, wanneroo, heathridge, mullaloo but the shire of joondalup and wanneroo have a lot of nice places depending on what you want. but i would definatly reccomend the move from NSW. aso when it gets hot over here it is not as bad becuase it is dry heat and doesn't have the humidity that you get over sydney way hope this helps

Hi Penny it is a good idea to think about what drugs you want to take ie gas, pethadine or epi but you realy do need to keep an open mindwhen you get in there i went to an antenatal class and this helped to explain what different things can happen and what effects different drugs can have. before i went into labor i was thinking i would use gas and pethadine if it got really bad and i would have lots of baths etc and i was not planning on having an epi well that all went out the window when i got induced and the babies heartbeat had to be constantly monitored. i was unable to get out of bed much except to go to the loo basicaly. also due to a long labor i had gas to start then 2 shots of pethadine (at seperate times) and in the end i had an epidural and had to have three shots of it because the first only numbed my left side and the second started to wear off after a few hours but it really helped and they let it start to wear off before you push so you can feel the contractions...

Hi Leia I know the sort of position you are in me and my husband got married 10 days before our daughter was due. Due to being heavily pregnant we changed a few things around and only invited close family and friends had a nice garden ceremony and had a nice relaxed lunch at a restaurant cafe. In a way i found it better this way becuase there wasn't as much stress to go through with all the organising to have a big wedding. We got married last September and instead of having the honeymoon straight away we just had it in late January this year and still had an excellent time although i found out a week before that i'm pregnant with out second bub. i know what you mean about whether or not you will be able to pick up and playing with your other baby i am worried i won't be able to do much with Jessica she is almost 5 months now. but i figure things will work out and i will find a way to be pregnant and be able to do things with Jess. hope this helps

Hi i have recently moved to WA from NSW and have found out i am approx 9 weeks pregnant with my second bub. i am trying to find out how the helthcare system works over here with geting refered to a hospital etc becuase the doctors i have seen don't really seem to know what they are talking about. with my first bub in NSW after the doctor did blood tests to confirm i was pregnant they referred me to the local hospital and everything else was done the the midwifes clinic and they were really good and helpfull. but over here they don't seem to want to refer me to the hospital and are talking about shared care but when i have asked about when i would get referred to the hospital they ask me to ring the hospital. Due to this i have seen several GP's and they have all been really vague so this doesn't really make me want to see them for shared care for half the pregnancy because i don't really trust they know what they are talking about. I live about 15 mins from Joondalup hospital ...
