    My health centre just called to say that my midwife is on holiday and all her appointments have been cancelled... They've managed to rearrange my appointment for.... get this....
























    The 19th of January... :shock: :shock: :shock: Thats my DUE DATE... :shock: and apparently they are doing me a favour.. :roll:

    That means I won't have seen a midwife since I was 28 weeks pregnant.... :x I'm really annoyed because I really needed to see her to mention all the swelling and period pains I've been getting, now I can't and I might pop before then :cry:

    thats ridiculous,

    can you not get in to someone at another practice or hospital?

    i go tomorrow to see the anesthesiologist at the hospital, my midwife said i should be seen by a m/w at the hospital if not i have to ring them and they will fit me in.

    I know the government has cut down on m/w appointments the further on you get as they think pg women are being seen 'too often' in late pg, but for you to go so long between visits is beyond a joke.

    I'd contact your hospital and explain the situation, surely someone will be able to see you.

    Hope you get seen soon Hun.

    :hug:

    OMG that's what I've been told :shock: .... If I'm that worried go to the hospital... But that will mean a stupidly long wait in casualty because basically theres nothing wrong with me... :roll: and I have enough trouble sitting on the sofa for more than 30 minutes without being in pain... :x

    I have a doctors appointment at the health centre tomorrow so I will mention it to her, but she doesn't get involved with anything "pregnancy" related, she leaves that to my non existent midwife... :roll: Maybe she's take a look for me... but probably not...
