    I had my daughter 4 weeks early but she was born by emergency C-section due to pre-eclampsia. I remember during my second pregnancy, when they scanned, they also checked the length of my cervix as a short cervix can indicate a higher risk of premature birth. It might be the consultant will check this? It was done with an internal ultrasound. There may be other things they can do too.

    I was high risk because of my previous pregnancy, but ended up with gestational diabetes and so under a different consultant! All I will say is that I felt well looked after. I saw my midwife every week from 30 weeks onwards, had growth scans at 28, 32 and 36 weeks and appointments with my consultant. It was all very reassuring.

    I had my first consultant appointment at 16 weeks, so a few weeks after my first scan.

I guess we have all had different previous pregnancy so they will talk about different things. Im.14 weeks the end of this week. The further i go the more scared i get that this one will be early.. i need to be prepared abit more then last time i guess 2nd time round you know whats worth taking to the hospital and whats not x

    My midwife has advised me that I will see the consultant this time at 18 weeks. On my last pregnancy, I had to request to see the consultant and that was around 24/26 weeks x
