One thing that differed between the different MFM's I saw besides their opinions on lovenox was that with my MFM, I will only always see "my" MFM. With the other MFM practice, they rotate MFM's so I would never (or not typically) see the same MFM two appointments in a row. That would have made me crazy! (One of my friends had an OB practice who did that with her first pregnancy, it was a mess. One doctor would change her due date. At the next appointment a different doctor would change it back. Etc.) Did you happen to ask or find out about that?
I think it's a little unusual that the MFM will be co-managing but also will do the delivery in a normal pregnancy. If you had a typical c-section and not a classical/vertical incision on your uterus, I don't think it would be too hard to find an MFM who would be more okay with a VBAC. I do think they prefer 2 years between pregnancies after a c-section for a vbac, but in our area we have some pretty vbac-friendly mfm's, since repeated c-sections will ultimately limit how many children you can have without raising the risks of repeated sections. (With a vertical/classic incision, they never consider VBAC an option.)
The website http://www.smfm.org is a good resource for finding MFM names in your area, at least.
Oh, and 18 months between conceptions sounds more like the norm, I thought you meant 18 months from the time you delivered Gracie until the time you can conceive again. I've heard anything from 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, between pregnancies, so that falls right in the middle with about 9 months between pregnancies. (My MFM also thought the same thing about weight loss and she was right, I actually had a healthier pregnancy at a heavier weight than I was at with my first preg.)
