    Got an appointment with the consultant tomorrow but letter didn't ask me to do anything in advance (urine sample /full bladder). Do you normally need to? I'll be 14+6 and don't have any appointments then until 20 week scan!

    What do consultants do? xx

    I had a consultant appointment at ~13 weeks and had to do a urine sample before I went in. The consultant went over my medical history & talked about the plan for the remainder of the pregnancy. You'll need to bring your notes, but that's probably it.

    I had a consultant appointment at 12weeks as I'm "overweight" had to take a urine sample. Waited for an hour for a 2 min appointment telling me I'll need an extra scan at 34 weeks.

    Good luck :)

    I seen the consultant at 14 too. I don't recall giving a urine sample. She basically just went over how I was feeling, telling me what her involvement will be in the pregnancy and letting me know my appointments to see her. She also put me on baby aspirin x

    This is what I had. Its nothing to worry about she will just tell you when they will be doing extra scans but does depend on how high your BMI is as mine was only 31

    The appointment was pointless! They took me an hour late! All they did was test my urine, take my blood pressure and tell me they have no immediate concerns over my back (I was referred as I broke my coccyx years ago and suffer back pain from it.) I now have no appointment until my 20 week scan in June 27th.. Too long! Argh

    That's good news. They are pretty pointless tho, specially when they keep you waiting lol
