    Got my 25 week check later with the gp....a week late thanks to the fact that I forgot to book it :roll:. So I guess I'll get measured so gp can tell me how fat I'm getting (and how big Bertie is getting), what else? Do I need a wee sample? I have terrible trouble with these, surely it wouldn't cost that much to provide us with a funnel and a sheet of tarpaulin lol.

    Not got the good looking gp today more's the pity but at least I don't have to worry about shaving the bikini line and make up lmao xxxxxxxxxx

    How comes don't you see the midwife hun?

    If it is the GP instead of the midwife for your antenatal care then you will need a wee sample :D

    Dunno, maybe she's sick of the sight of me lol. 28 week check with mw and consultant then checks just about every week with someone after that :roll:.

    Dammit about the wee sample. I'm sure as my bump gets bigger my bloody arms are getting shorter. Not going to be able to reach in a few weeks lmao.......and with my lack of aim I can't ask the OH to hold the tube lol.......hmmmm or maybe I could :D

    an extra set of arms would come in handy, specially after little one is born x making bottles holding a baby is nightmare x

    I went to my 25week appointment at the GP too.... Was nice actually she was really attentive and better than the different midwives I've seen. Going back at 31weeks to see same doc. I had to wee, but they gave me a pot when I got there. Plus told me I have a varicous vein! Eeeeek

    On the plus side he's the gp that saw me first about my back pain. Going to tell him about the horse-riders-bum I've been getting too and see what he says. He should be sympathetic cos he had polio when he was little (used to work with him too lol)

    I saw midwife at 25 weeks and she still wanted wee sample. I have a 'special' jug bought cheapo from Wilkos for the pleasure - it's bright red and kept in bathroom cupboard to hubby isn't tempted to use it when he cooks!!! ha ha!!

    I have my 25 week tomorrow. I think I will be using the bigger pot to assist very soon as well, so glad it isn't just me who has discovered that my arms are getting shorter by the day!!
