    Anything I should take/info I should know before I go tomorrow?
    My mom said I must tell them I was a big baby (10.11 :shock: which has been funny until now!!) and that she had diabetes when pregnant with me.

    I made a list of any health issues in the family. I listed everything as I didn't know what they needed.

    She will ask you what she needs to know, just make a list of questions of what you want to know xx

    It's mainly about your and your partner's medical history, from what I remember. It's ok if you're not sure as well. My oh doesn't know his dad so we couldn't answer stuff about his family history very well xxx

    You haven't, from experience of having 3 children already midwives are extremely over worked and over stretched, i could never get hold of mine on the phone id always have to leave messages and wait for a call back and i had to chase up my scan date as i hadn't heard anything. Don't think its you its just the good old NHS being over stretched!! :)

    Don't worry! I am 11 weeks pregnant and had to phone up the midwife to find out when they would be in contact. They then informed me that the doctor hadn't even referred me!! Luckily I phoned up and asked otherwise I'd still be waiting. I have my midwife appointment on Friday and scan on the 7th of March - although they had to fit me in as they said they couldn't see me until the 27th of March! Good old NHS and their communication.

    Thanks everyone. Feeling a bit better now, think I had just built up the excitement of my first 'official' appointment only for it to be a non starter!
