    Hi girls, I saw gp Monday and my details were passed on to the local midwives, how long should I wait to hear from them? I can't remember last time how long it was but I do remember imy details were never passed on so had to call them myself! Suppose I'm thinking the same will happen this time but I wondered should it be days/weeks?! X

    Hi, I saw GP at about 7 weeks and still haven't heard from local Midwives - I'm wondering now if he's forgotten? I may call later to check........

    hey, I have to see my gp, who passes the infor to the local midwife, but i had to call them the day after seeing my gp so they would have my name and chase the information if it didnt get to them. I had my booking in last thursday (by lmp i was 8w2d)

    Hope this helps x x

    Yeah my booking in appointment will have taken ages between going to the GP and seeing the MW. Saw GP at 5 weeks and have a booking in appointment when I'm 11. I think it depends on the area but NHS website it can range from 8 - 13 weeks. I have my 12 week scan when I'm 12 weeks though xx

    I saw my doctor at 6 weeks then they rang a week later to book me in at 8 weeks with the midwife. Had my scan on Monday at nearly 12 weeks. Have to commend my docs they have been really efficient!
