    hello

    ive finally booked my midwife appointment, after getting so much grief of everyone to do it. anyway im 16 weeks so how often do i have to see her after that one.

    im just not keen on midwives they always want to take blood :lol:

    Debbie :shock: :rotfl:

    Can't believe you haven't seen a midwife yet! Know what you mean about blood but mine was ace with me (I'm petrified of injections) and took everything in one go. Which was difficult but at least it's over for a bit.

    On a related note, do I have to give more blood for testing later? When?

    laughing........yes i meant male midwife.

    i went to epu for a scan at 6 weeks but havent seen a midwife since, i just know on friday it will be "we need to take some blood" then when i next go "we shall take some blood" and so on.

    evn though i dont have the tests it will be "we need to take some blood" :lol:

    i wasnt going to go until after my twenty week scan but everyone keeps telling me off so for a quiet life.

    you need to go hun because you should have had the triple blood test at 15 weeks(if you decide to have it)

    It makes no difference whether your having the triple test or not. What about you? The blood tests check for loads of things including iron levels, blood count, immunity to rubella, all sorts. Have the bloods done, they are important!! It's just one sharp scratch and its all over. I'd rather have a blood test than use my hair straighteners, I'm always terrifed I'm gonna burn my neck!!t

    they took some blood at 6 weeks, with my first they didnt get blood at all till i was in labour then they were like vampires.

    its not the needle its the getting the veins up that makes me sick, and my veins are rubbish.

    i had blood taken at 10 wks (booking app), then have to have it taken nxt time (28 wks), which is when they check your iron levels etc. Although it is diff everywhere!
