    When I had mine the midwife went through our family history etc and took some blood from me. Appointment took about an hour and a half. It is an exciting feeling. I got my scan date quickly after my first appointment xx

    Midwife won't check for heartbeat until your 16 week appointment 8 weeks is very early to find babies HB. They take your bloods ask your family history um if you've got any children how the labour went ( mine did anyway). Weigh you. And they might give you your scan date too! My area you get your scan date at your appointment but I know some you have to wait for a letter through the post x

    I'm not excited about my booking appointment at all- if anything it's abit of a pain- essential but a pain- for memory it's just 101 questions

    I've got to make an excuse to get out of work today to go to mine- as she only does Wednesdays- the worst day for me of the week!

    Moan over lol :(

    I didn't have a cycle between miscarriage and falling pregnant this time. So they want to date it so I have the 12 week scan at the correct time. I tested 28 days after miscarriage, so pretty sure I'm the same as if I had a period.

    When I had my 8week appointment the midwife used Doppler to see if she could find a heartbeat but I had a big bump already is it was more to see If I could be further along x

    As if I wasn't annoyed about the booking appointment anyway/ I had a student midwife- ago asked everything but kept getting tongue tied, couldn't explain professionally etc - then failed twice to get blood- qualified midwife tried on other arm and failed so now I look like I've been butchered and have to go to have bloods taken after scan- which means I have to take half a day off again- as my employer doesn't know and I won't tell them till Monday after scan!

    Between them i got the impression they couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery!
    Doh

    Yeah. I got it at the midwife information session the Monday after I found out. They said if we filled in all our info and history that would limit the questions we needed to be asked

    I found out in 27th and by 1st I'd seen a midwife. They also have daily morning drop ins to see a mw whenever you're worried at the community centre and give you their direct numbers for contact.

    I have mine next Wednesday. Mine was also being a bit of a pain. At first they said I could only come in at 11am on a Tuesday and I was like err I work part time that's the only day I work 3hrs 45mins and for me to leave midway for an appointment looks really bad! As in why couldn't I make it later on.. I feel guilty about only working those many hours anyway. So luckily they found an appointment on the Wednesday at 1.30.. hmm

    I was told to come in and pick up a leaflet first?! anyone know what this means? I haven't done it yet as I have a reassurance scan tomorrow and what to make sure everything is fine.
