    So... I was talking to my stepdad about my 20 week scan and it got me thinking...

    After my scan I never seen the midwife? I asked the receptionist if I was to see her and she said no. So the next day I had a voicemail from them saying I never got my notes so I need to go and get them. Useless so they are!!

    Anyway - the last time I actually seen a midwife was at the 12 week scan and I'm now nearly 22 weeks :| Do they contact me? I honestly thought I would get a letter out giving me an appointment? I feel fine and all that, but surely they should be keeping tabs on my bloods, blood pressure and stuff?

    Well you will see your midwife for check up's and she will make sure your BP is all ok, right up until the end. But you don't have any more scans. Just the 12 and 20 week, unless they need to see the baby. But I don't have any more scans, but I see my midwife every 4 weeks.

    Yeah I know about the scans, but I just thought it was strange that she hasn't contacted me about check ups :| xx

    I just thought she would phone me like the 12 week appointment she made with me. You would think they would be wondering where the hell I am no? x
