    About as productive as Squigs, really. Got in there at 10:30, appointment was at 10:40..didn't get called until 11:15..had a Midwife doing the scan and not a Sonogropher and she took ages..baby is still head down and was chewing a foot..saw her toes wriggling an everything :lol: Then had to wait another 15 mins to see the consultant..this is the part which I don't like, we never see the same one twice and each time I go in there I have to explain everything that's happened each time :roll: I thought the main thing was I had low fluid, as the levels are being checked every 2 weeks and this consultant told me to 'Stop obsessing about the fluid, that's not why they are monitoring me,' and 'It's babys growth which is the main concern,' (Babys growth has always been great) and also 'Don't think you are getting out of a vaginal delivery,' (I never thought I was?) As usual, fluid is low but baby is great. Consultant said I should come back in 4 weeks for another growth scan but no fluid checks in between, which is worrying..but I guess I should 'Stop Obsessing.' :wall:

    Sorry for the rant!

    Thanks guys..the consultant was a woman by the way, would you believe? All I asked was 'If fluid contnues to be low can I still carry to term?' Cause it's something I really want. Hopefully I won't have her next time, I see a different one each time. But fingers crossed next one will be the last scan :cheer:
