    Hiya hun,

    I had my booking in appt at 8 weeks and although my husband was there he wasnt included in much except a lecture from the midwife to get him to stop smoking!

    The midwife will ask lots of questions for your maternity notes - your health and family history of illness - you will need to know your oh history as well such as whether there is a history of prem births etc. in his family.
    I had blood taken, given a million leaflets and booked in for first scan.

    I found it all quite reasurring and got to ask questions - maybe write things down tonight that you want to ask so that you dont forget.

    Hope it all goes well, let us know how you get on x

    Hello, it went okay actually don't know what i was worried about was there for a good hour and a half though!! So much paperwork. Got the forms to have blood tests taken and my scan booked for the 23rd :). The midwife has stuck with my original due date of 30th of July because she said often dating at the early scan can be wrong which would make me 10+5 not 9... I'm confused so going to stick with being 9 until i've had my dating scan or i will get dissapointed if they put me back again i think! She was really nice, seeing her again on the 26th.
