    So I'm booked in for monday for my blood tests and I'm sure that my MW said to take a sample with me too, so I thought I'd ask the receptionist whilst on the phone and she's told me no so now I'm confused....anyone any insight to this before I ring my MW and look dozy for not really listening?

    I'm sure you only take your sample with you to see mw, maybe she was talking about next time you see her? x x

    I'll collect a sample bottle when I go for my bloods and then take it to see the MW on week 16 :) Thanks for all your messages girls! Think Baby brain might have hit early! LOL

    I'm a frequent sufferer of UTIs before i got pregnant so I know what you mean about it being difficult to pee into those stupid tubes. The ones in the urology department come with a funnel to wee down - I don't know why these aren't standard issue!!
