    Hey Sallie, I literally just had mine....they didn't listen to the babies heartbeat, she just asked a lot of questions (e.g. Height, weight, smoker/drinker? Familiy medical history, ethnic background etc.) and filled in forms.

    The midwife tried to take blood but couldn't so I have to go back for blood tests which are testing for sickle cell, HIV etc.


    I have to send off a form to book me in for our 12 week scan, it varies from area to area.

    hi hun, I had mine today and it's just as karate kid explained above.. however midwife said something bout a 10 week scan? me and hubby were confused as I thought u have it at 12 weeks?? and they'll ask for a urine test, either way we're very excited to see our lil un for the first time :D

    You'll get a bounty pregnancy pack with lots of info to do with pregnancy etc and useful contact numbers etc... this is great time to ask any questions you may have.. hope this helps xx
