    Hello :) Hope you're all well!

    Just a quick question - I have my 16 week appointment tomorrow with my midwife to have my bloods taken for DS testing. Does anyone know will I have my weight taken again as well etc.? x

    I didn't get weighed at my 16 week app :( my scales don't work so I asked the midwife to do it after my 20 week scan instead! Xxx

    Ohhh no, I really do want to get weighed because I've only put on between 0.5-1lb and it's below what I'm supposed to have. Hmm, maybe I'll just tell her that and see what she says. x

    I didn't get weighed today (I went a week earlier than I was supposed to because the midwife is away next week), but she tested my urine and I was able to hear the heartbeat - I could also hear baby kicking and having a party in there! It's ace - enjoy x

    I was weighed at 8 week booking in but not at the next one at 16 weeks. I'm a bit of a greedy git and over weight so trying to avoid them but don't fret they will do what is needed and if there is any concern they will tell you. People do loose weight during pregnancy and some put loads on I don't think there is a right way.

    I'm sure if you ask they will weigh you no problems :) I just completely forgot so I asked after my scan instead and they just took me into a room and did it for me xxx
