Dani and mummyplus2- Yes I'm in Adelaide. I live in Windsor Gardens, so it is a bit of a drive! I also got lost after the tour of Lyell Mc! Came out a different door to where we came in and had to walk around the hospital on the road until I found the carpark I parked in!! It was my first time there.
Snobs- Hope all goes well with your birth. good luck walking there! When I went into labour with DS1 I wasn't going anywhere- called DH from the floor of the shower to tell him that I was in labour! Couldn't even get off the floor by myself so laid there wrapped in a towel until he got home and got me dressed and into the car!
We lived in Hillcrest then, and had DS at Flinders Hospital (long story) so it was an agonising drive! We thought DS would be born in the car, but due to complications, wasn't born for another 14 hrs!
I love the birthing suites, but had an epi for DS1 and want the option for one again, so will have this bub in the normal delivery rooms- they look nice too, (DH can still stay overnight), then move to the ward- did that with DS1 and it was fine- stayed for 3 days.
