    Hi, this is my first perg, so REALLY don't know what to expect...or when! I will be 6 weeks tomorrow, so surely shouldn't be showing yet....but after i eat lunch, and more so my evening meal my tummy seems to bloat to about 6 months!!!!!! By the morning it has gone right down again!? Has anyone else had this??? Also i have just got my 1st hospital app through for 2 weeks time...what do they do at this first app? (have already been to doc's when first found out) xxx

    I'm really bloating at the moment, only started a couple of days ago and I thought I'd overdone it a bit this weekend, but today even a sandwich made me feel really uncomfortable! You're not alone!

    Hi and congrats :) :cheer:

    They will book you in. Take a bit of a medical history, ask you some questions, weigh you, take your BP and so on. Nothing major.

    Sounds like you are seeing your MW at your hospital, others see them via their GP's surgery.

    And the bloating is normal :roll: Just do what works best for you and if thats eating little and often or not eating a main meal in the evening, go with it :)

    Hey, I know exactly what you mean. I've been bloated and bumpy from the minute I found out! It's wierd cos I'm really hungry all the time then when I come to eat I can only get a few mouthfuls in and I'm full. I was exactly the same with my last baby. I'm just glad the m/s has subsided for me now so at least I can eat when I want to now, without thinking I'm gonna throw up at the smell of stuff!

    I've had my first midwife appt this morning and it was pretty uneventful. She came to my home and it lasted about an hour altogether. It is mostly paperwork to be honest, getting your faimlies medical histories and noting any problems, taking your blood for several tests, and just running through what to expect and how everything works.

    Now just got to wait for her to refer me to the scanning dept so I can get a date for my scan. I'm so impatient!!

    Not sure about your midwife situation hun, it works slightly differently from county to county. My midwife will remain my midwife through my whole pregnancy and I will see her at my docs surgery from now on. Obviously if she is ill or on holiday I will see someone else but for the most part it should be her. It's something you will have to check at your first appointment. Just because your first appt is at the hospital doesn't mean they all will be.
