    My MW came to visit me at home at around 11 weeks. She did my bloods at the time and a risk assessment thingy with stuff like whether my house was easily accessable, if we had a door bell, if our street was well lit etc. Hmmm...what else...it was a long time ago now! lol! I can't remember. Should be pretty painless though!

    It depends on the health authority as to whether they do home visits or not.
    With James, for my initial visit the midwife came to me. With this baby I'm living in a different area and have to go to the clinic for my appointments.
    It's nothing to worry about :D

    ken walked in the same time as the midwife so i was made up that he made it, bless him he had been awake over 36hrs and still managed to ask loads of questions and pay attention to all the info we were given

    we heard the heart beat which was amazing :D

    also talked through all the tests available and our birthing options, might opt for a birthing pool at home 8)

    cant wait for the 20wk scan now so i can see bump again :D

    Thats fantastic that he made it through at the same time - did he go straight to sleep after she had gone??

    I got my next appointment with MW on 20th dec. I will be 17 + 2 i should get to hear the heartbeat aswell

    Exciting

    I'm glad everything went well- I was a bit late reading your post otherwise I would have sent a nice reassuring post telling you that it is normal to be visited at home-oops bit late now!

    Not long to wait until your 20 week scan- it'll be around in a jiffy!

    It's really strange as up here i saw midwife 1st (at 9 weeks) in the docs surgery, then had a scan at 14 weeks, then see the midwife at 17 weeks, then a scan at 21 weeks. then it will be midwife again. You had your scan first then had a home visit off midwife

    she sed id done things a bit of a funny way round but as this is our 1st we just assumed the way we were doin it was normal lol

    it was so nice to be reassured about everything

    we are also now considering a home birth :shock:

    bless ken as soon as the midwife went he passed out on the sofa but he was over the moon to hear the heart beat, we wish we'd have recorded it on our fones now tho :?
