    Hey guys, just back! It wasn't too bad. Had two midwifes in with me. Lots of notes and questions. Got my bounty pack and bloods taken, height weight, blood pressure and the carbon monoxide test also had to give a urine sample and while the midwife took me out to go to the loo she asked me about domestic abuse. Mostly faffing about with my notes really. 12 days to go til Scan! x

    Fingers crossed! I got mine in quite quick. Felt a sense of achievement when they did the Carbon test and it came back so low.

    That's good. I didn't have one of those. If mine don't come today I might call them as have to fit it around my oh off days as he can't get days off so might need to change it first time x

    Glad it went well, sounds pretty much like mine except I didn't have the carbon monoxide test - or at least I don't think I did! x

    Yay sounds good

    My midwife at booking in was shit!

    She basically answered all my questions ..... No mental health issues, no depression (I'm like uhhhowdo you know!)
    I forget the questions on oh but again she was like partner not from abroad no ....

    She took several phone calls, didn't give me a pack and didn't get me to sign medical cert for free medical care.

    Annoying!! Xxx

    I've had two appointments and met 3 different midwifes, I don't think I'll get the same one every time. There are two who attend the doctors clinic which I've to book myself in for at various times and neither of the two I met today were those. The women seemed nice though but at the end she was writing another bit of paper and put my E.D.D as Jan 14 but because they were talking she ignored me saying this was wrong twice so I gave up.:wall2:

    I didn't get asked about depression or anything and I've suffered from that and anxiety for years soo.. She basically went through my notes and mentioned what I was getting tested for and asked if it was okay for these then said about benefits of breastfeeding, quickly went over everything in pack, just asked if I knew my E.D.D didn't ask my last period or anything. Bloods was quite horrible though, I don't mind needles but this woman put it in my arm then had to keep wiggling it about for my blood to come out properly, started feeling woozy!
