    Has anyone else had to wait from 12 to 24 weeks to see their midwife again? Seems a hell of a long time to me. I know I have the 20 week scan in the middle of that but even so... would like some reassurance that Maurice is OK!!!!

    I've got 12 weeks between midwife appointments, from 16-28 weeks. In my case though it's because it's my second child.
    If it were my first I'd see the midwife at 24 weeks as well.

    I had booking appointment at 8 weeks....nothing till 16 weeks....now my next is 25 weeks!! Seems ages...i don't feel i can ring my mw with questions cos i don't think she'd actually know who the hell i am!!!!
    After 25 weeks i see her fortnightly...which is better. I don't even know if i'm booked in to any ante natal classes..... :think:

    I saw mine for booking appointment at 10 weeks, again at 14 weeks and then i am seeing her next week at 24 weeks. Think it gets more frequent after that, my midwife acknowledged that it was a long time between appoinments and i think she would prefer to see people more often but it is all about the money!

    I am like you Debecca.
    The midwife was supposed to come to my house two weeks ago for
    my 16 week check up...but she forgot me :cry:

    When I finally got through to her the next day, she said they were
    short staffed and I wouldn't see anyone until 24 weeks.

    I have a scan at 21 weeks, hoefully that will put my mind at rest.

    Can't remember when I last saw my m/w, about 13 weeks I think. Won't see her again until 28 weeks for the lovely anti-D jabs and some more blood removed :lol:

    i saw mine at 6 weeks and i will again at 24 weeks. Thats due to me being out of the area though- they wouldnt have booked me in so early otherwise, and i would have seen her at 16 and 24 instead. Its my first baby .
