    That is a long time between visits. :eek:

    I would think she will check your BP, urine, have a feel of your tummy, measure your tummy, listen to babies HB and maybe weigh you. Nothing to worry about.

    Hope it goes well. xx

    hi hon
    i just had my 28 week appointment - had my BP and urine checked. she also checked trog's position, heartbeat and the fundal height. and yes, i had blood tests too - for haemoglobin and rh status. my advice would be to have them done, even if you don't like needles... :hug: i know its a long way from fun, but IMO they only do them to make sure you and your LO are ok and that's the most important thing
