NHS - care is declining

This isn’t to start a hate train on the NHS themselves, I understand we’re so terribly understaffed and the job load is OTT. But it just seems to me that all around, things are getting worse with GPs mainly, in my area at least. Everything is passed off. Anything alarming is passed off. I have a good case for a negl...

Student midwives

First time mom to be. Just finishing off my birth plan and I'm quite torn on whether I'm OK with student midwives to be present or not. Anyone else refused one the day/planning to refuse? Why? What was your experience with one (both positive and negative can be shared). I know they've got to learn somehow bless them...

Disappointed

I was just able to schedule an appointment this morning. My insurance took forever to approve my referral. It isn't until March 20th 😒😞 I'll be 10ish weeks. Anyone else have this issue? I'm 6w5d

Gestational Diabetes

I’ve been diagnosed with GD at 28 weeks. Now I’m at 29wks. This is my first pregnancy and I’m scared for my baby. Now I have to go to a diabetic doctor and start testing my sugars at home. Does the GD go away after I give birth? Also, will my baby be okay? I’m terrified.

33 Weeks and told I have GD

My Birth plan is to have a home birth but today the lady who told me I have GD and that I need to control my sugar levels basically said to stop thinking about a home birth altogether. Is this the case? I know the risks with GD but it was kind of gutting to be told to forget about a home birth altogether..

How long it takes?

I applied for food stamps on the 8th of this month. The household income is $0. I submitted the documents that they requested on 13 February. I already did the interview the same day I applied. Doesn’t my income $0 qualifies me as expedited? I’m just shocked online they say u can get them in as little as 7 days if u...

Stress

Me and my partner still haven't decided if we're going public or private. We're looking at moving a little closer to my due date but possibly could be out west or down the coast. I feel really unorganised, I've been seeing my GP and saw a midwife last week as I'm already in the public system due to the wait time. N...

14DPO

Can you see what I see? What appears to be a second line has come up pretty fast. I took this test in the late arvo today fully expecting it to be negative because I have a lot of cramps that feel exactly like my period coming (my period is due in two days). I’m scared to feel excited

Insulin

For those that have been put on insulin did your Dr say that’s an automatic induction? I’m not on insulin but may have to be put on it, I am on metformin currently. Just wondering if I can go full term on insulin if it comes to it.
