    Hi ladies
    I'm just wondering how many times you have seen your midwife? I am 12 weeks pregnant today and I first saw her at 8 weeks for my booking in appointment but I'm not seeing her again until 17th June where I will be around 15 weeks. I havent even heard the heartbeat yet but I have my dating scan on Monday so I will hear it then but I am trying to remember how many times I saw the midwife in my first pregnancy..everything seems to be different this time round!! Xx

    I am having my second baby and so far I've only seen the midwife at booking app, 16 and 28 week appointments. I'm not due to see her again until 34 weeks and then its every fortnight until 40 weeks, then weekly after if I go overdue. I didn't hear the heartbeat until my 16 week appointment with midwife. I was shown the heartbeat on the screen at 12 and 20 week scan but didn't actually hear it. X

    I'm on my 3rd baby so you don't see them as often as for your first.

    I saw the MW at the booking in appointment which I had at 13 weeks. My next appointment was at 20 weeks, then another (3rd app) at 28 weeks.
    And then I have said I want a home birth so she came to my house at 31 weeks to do the paperwork and she did everything they normally do at an antenatal appointment. But if I weren't wanting a home birth I doubt I'd have seen her until 34 weeks.
    My next MW app is at 34 weeks (next week) and then should be fortnightly.

    It's so weird getting so many now (close together) when all the others have been 7/8 weeks between visits up until the Home Birth one.

    It depends on the pregnancy this pregnancy due to complications I'm seeing my mw weekly so I have continuity and support from the same person x
