    thanks bloom :hug:

    yeah he said he'll take the day off work. i really don't mind going myself, it's just the principle of it really :cry:

    i think my mums still trying to come to terms with it sometimes to be honest, she was saying she was really busy tomorrow, like 'i have to go to the post office and pick up a parcel..' :roll: the appointment will probably only take like 15 mins :cry:

    I'm sorry your Mum let you down :hug:

    It won't be that long an appointment for your OH to need to take the whole day off. Be a shame to lose a days salary. Maybe just the AM or PM for the appointment?

    I don't worry about anyone coming with me to the MW. I kind of like the chance to have a bit of one on one with her.

    back from m/w, she was lovely and everything is well :dance:

    i feel a lot better because i know that i have that support network now, where as, upto now, i've not had anyone i could phone for advice etc.

    she found babies heartbeat and he/she was running away from it :rotfl: little nutter :rotfl:

    my oh did come with me, i went in myself but he sat in the waiting room, he's a sweetie :)

    she wants to see me back in 2 weeks though?? thats a bit early, no? also -we had a chat about how my area don't offer the anomaly scan and she also thinks it's appalling :( so we're going to get the babybond one next month..

    hope everyones ok today :hug:

    Glad all went well. The 20 week appointment is normal iirc so chances are she is just bringing you into line with it all.

    Then its 24/26 weeks usually, at least round here.

    In my area we don't see the midwife between 12 and 24 weeks :shock:

    Mind you, I did get a 20 week scan as routine so I can't really complain.

    Cripes, I had a 12, 16 and 20 week and then a 26 week one to come. It really is a lottery as to each health authority and what they offer.

    Glad it went well for you :)

    I'm not sure exactly when we get appointments here, I know that my midwife is booked so far in advance! She has too many pregnant women and not enough time.

    I had a 5-6 week app (when I found out I was pregnant)
    A 14 week one
    and I've one on the 22nd, around 22 weeks gone
    As well as a 12 week scan and a 20 week one.

    Seems silly how many different levels of care we get!

    I get booking appointment and scan (supposed to be at 12 weeks but mine was 16) and then was supposed to have a midwife appointment at 16 weeks.

    then I have marked in my notes

    22 weeks (done)
    28 weeks with bloods
    32 weeks
    34 weeks
    36 weeks with bloods
    38 weeks
    40 week with bloods

    :roll: didn't realise it varied so much depending on your area :?

    i still think it's shocking that not everyone is offered the anomaly scan :(

    Its stupid - u are not far away from me so it shouldn't vary that much.

    Looking at my midwife appointments it feels like I won't be away from the clinic :lol:

    I'm glad your appointment went well.
    :D
    I saw the midwife at 8 and 16 weeks, see her again at 28. (If it were my first I'd have seen her at 24 weeks too)
