    well...don't really know where to start!

    Took an age to fill out all the forms because of all the risks from my last delivery.....

    I am being put under a Consultant and well and truly looked after this time it would seem...although i do think i am heading for a section...

    oh and my sore tongue....thrush! so i have nystatin drops which are just minging!!!

    but at least i didnt panic when the needle came out...i think i am passed that phobia!

    you should see how much writing is on my notes already!! lol

    scan on 16th august xx

    I'm being consultant lead too! As I had preClampsia at the end of my pregnancy with my son and high blood pressure. I get a few extra scans yay but at least you will be closely monitored too which is always a nice thing I think xx

    I'm consultant led too due to previous section. So much info to take in. What did they say to you ladies about next appointment? I think she said to me consultant appointment at 16 weeks instead of midwife?

    jojo my bmi is currently 44, was 42 at booking in. your not alone at all and have nothing to be ashamed of you have every right to be pregnant and have a baby just like everyone else regardless of size. my bmi was 39/40 in my last pregnancy and i had a perfectly fine labour and birth despite having a large baby. size of baby was nothing to do with my weight or anything either just my the way my body makes them. i lose weight when im preg anyway rather than gaining much so maybe you will too if you dont eat toomuch junk, main thing to focus on is be happy and healthy and enjoy your pregnancy when you can

    I'm surprised they suggested a section, I had a lot of the same problems with h as u did with Hannah and they said they wanted to avoid a section as best they could despite it being twins! My labour will be much more managed and obviously I'm consultant led (was before too) and have notes even scrawled on the front of m book! Lol!

    The only time a section has been mentioned is when both the twins were breech, now one is head down they are back to natural delivery with prob a lot of intervention! Maybe wait and see what the consultant says as often some people are more pro caesarians than others!

    I think it's swings and round abouts, I don't want one coz you can't drive and won't be able to pick up h etc. I'm quite relaxed about the labour tbh (must be mad)
