    Aww you guys are all pretty close to each other then!

    I am in Ayrshire so I'm going to Crosshouse hospital it's just 10 mins from me!

    I'm back at work today after 2 weeks off. Can't face it... Oh well here goes! 0

    I went to the Gwent last time, but assuming I'll get a choice this time I just cant decide! Plenty of time to think about it yet.

    I'm so sorry some of you are still feeling so ropey. It does pick up about 14 weeks, honest!

    I am getting annoyed with my work. My Midwife at GP is so unflexable but can't do much about it. My 16 week appt with them is at 12 o'clock on 19th which means I need to drive 26 miles to work then leave 2 hours later and drive back to Ayrshire 26 miles for my appt.... Then drive back to Glasgow for work which is anther 26 miles and then drive 26 miles home all in 1 day (92 miles) The midwife says she only has that 1 appt both weeks and my work won't give me a half day as its too busy. I really don't see how that's a good service with 1 appt only available same time same day both weeks!? I've tried to phone back today to Complain and it's been constantly engaged.... Where do I stand with only being offered 1 appt slot no other options?

    I could go to Ingleside but I’m too scared of something going wrong and being separated. Had to have ‘repairs’ after ds so I’d prefer to be somewhere they can cope with anything. I could have had ds at the royal but by then it was midwife only so for same reason as I won’t do Ingleside I didn’t go there. Lived right next to royal as well so it would have been dead handy!

    @Alexis2017 thats really unfair but while they have to give you time off for appointment they can ask you to come back after. Maybe ask if you can see a different community midwife on another day? There should be a team for your area.

    Have to go to Bolton for scans!
    Bet we’ll end up at toddler groups together!

    It’s only natural to worry. Hope tomorrow goes well.

    Yeah it's because I work in Glasgow 26 miles away but my appts are all wjere I live. Apparently there is only 1 midwife at my GP and she only does 1 clinic on a thur 9-12... That's only appt I can get till 23rd Oct so have to lump it and do the 100 miles!

    I've got my gender scan 2 weeks Fri and I then have my 20 week nhs scan then I booked a 4d scan for 23 weeks and they put the babys heartbeat recording on to a cute Teddy bear... So cute can't wait!

    @Jeni 1990 I've done and you've told me and moved into 2nd trimester thread :rotfl::rotfl:

    Scan was amazing thank you. I made sure I drank plenty of water. Seen our little baby wiggling around. A bit disappointed in the scan pics theure not very clear but the ones we were shown on screen were so clear.

    Official due date 18th March so we're officially 12 weeks 5 days.

    Not long until your scan now!!! Xxx

    My midwife is the same @Alexis2017. 1 half day a week and 19mile each way trip for me from work. Pain in the butt, but driving is nicer than working!

    That's a lovely pic @Nattles33! I've added you to the due date list too. Mind if I have a gender guess?

    @Jeni 1990 good luck for your scan tomorrow! I think theres someone else with a scan tomorrow too but I cant remember who now...

    Such a small world ladies, I’m only in Chorley, I work in Bolton. I’m under Preston hospital as Chorley don’t have the funding for a maternity unit.
