    Angry Unbelievable!

    Hi ladies...i am new to this forum but thought i'd give you an update on the dire straits of getting a maternity bed in Hong Kong. I registered with my OB at 4 weeks 6 days pg (2 days ago), and am most likely going to be waitlisted at Matilda as i am behind about 6 other of the Doc's patients in that intake group. INSANE!!!! Who can handle this stress???? Esp when pregnant!!!

    It is insane, I know. But be assured. I'm in week 37, and I'm pregnant with my No 2, so the baby is likely to come earlier than my EDD. I only got my Matilda booking finally confirmed two days ago! Best luck!

    Yep, I was going to say, don't stress about it yet. You haven't even been waitlisted or declined yet - just warned that you might be and the majority of people who don't get confirmed bookings (as opposed to being declined) do seem to get in nearer their due date.

    I m 27 weeks now and still waiting! Not stressing about it anymore if will not get confirm my doc will give me referal letter to QMH. I m not gonna worry about things I do not have control over! Also I went from nr 9 to nr 3 on a waiting list within like 6-7 weeks! Try not to worry, I m sure your doc will do the best to get you. Who are you seeing?

    Thanks for all your kind support and reassurance. It's just so unbelievably ridiculous! I had a miscarriage last year and didn't really want to go through the emotional pain of getting a scan this early (knowing i wouldnt see a hearbeat!) purely for the sake of getting a hospital bed. But i knew i had to get the scan to confirm my edd and now i am likely not to get a bed confirmed until later (if at all).
    I delivered years ago at the Matilda and it was a dream compared with my first public hospital experience in Australia (absolute nightmare!) so i am very anxious about not getting in there again! To be honest though now i realise how hard it is, i dont care where i go, as long as my OB delivers me!

    For those still waiting and very close to EDD, good luck!! Would love to hear how you go(-: And for those booked and about to pop, best of luck too(-:

    They are undergoing renovations, and were when I gave birth back in July. It was "kind of" annoying, the drilling sounds, etc.....but to be honest, I only noticed them before i gave birth. After the baby I didn't notice the construction sounds at all, guess I was so busy..ha ha

    just an update. I got offered a bed at Adventist today...even though Matilda is my preference i am going to take it and pay the deposit. I would rather NOT stress for the next 8 months (on top of pregnancy stress!). I suppose the upside is that Adventist is more central as we live on southside.
