    I had mine at a local childrens centre, I was in about 10 mins if that. She checked my wee, blood pressure, checked the heartbeat and then asked me if I had any questions then that was it! xxx

    Mine was about 30 minutes long i think.. check wee, blood pressure and listen to heartbeat..

    Had a bit of a talk about fitness and classes etc, then just some questions I had.

    Don't feel rushed out, if you have questions ask them - I write everything down now before I go because my baby brain hits and never ask anything I want to ha

    I second the baby brain, I am so forgetful or do stupid things. Normally I am so organized and methodical.

    Hi hun,

    It went well, I ended up going in an hour and half after my appointment time because she had to attend a home birth hehe.

    I was in there for about 20 minutes, she checked my blood pressure, urine sample, went through my blood tests results with me and let me listen to babies heartbeat.

    I was a little miffed as she knew nothing about bounty pack folders that give you the coupons for the pack from boots so I have had to email the bounty website admin to ask for them x
