    Yes, measuring at 28 weeks+

    You're 'lucky' you even had an appointment at 24 weeks - you only get that with your first lol.

    I'm 25 weeks and have only seen the midwife twice - booking in appointment at 13 weeks and a 2nd appointment at 20 weeks, and then my next appointment is at 28 weeks lol.
    I think after that it goes to 4 weekly then 2 weekly appointments (after 34/36 weeks). Going 7/8 weeks between appointments seems sooooo long!!!

    I first got measured at 28 weeks too, but know of some ladies being measured at 25 weeks.

    I'm very lucky with this pregnancy, it's my 3rd but my mw sees all her ladies every 4 weeks so I have seen her at 17, 21, 25, 28 and booked in next week at 32 xx
