Hi - I'm lucky in some ways, walking distance, about 10 minutes or so, 15 at the moment as I can't walk fast or far being less than 4 weeks away from DD. However, there is NO parking whatsoever, although you are allowed to drive to the maternity ward, abandon the car until you get checked in, but then you loose hubbie / partner while they go and move the car, so not much point really. It feels too close for an ambulance or taxi, being less than a mile, but too far to walk or really get the bus in labour. So I am not sure how I shall be travelling. I shall have to ask what is the best way when I go again on Weds.

About 25-30 minutes drive although Owen wants to drive me across the border into Wales (from Leicestershire) once I go into labour so that Lion can legitimately play for the Welsh rugby team (even if Lion is a girl apparently!).
He has some funny ideas, bless him.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
