    Hi Girl :wave:

    I see a obstetrician tomorrow and am not too sure what to expect. I have not heard of anyone else talking about this before so was just wondering for those that have done it what usually went off.

    I think it is because of my low lying placenta. I believe they will give me a scan date tomorrow as I have been told that they would scan at 36 and if not moved probably do c-section at 37 :think:

    Hope everyone has had a nice weekend.

    :hug:

    I've seen my obgyn three times so far... and I have another appointment on the 26th of Dec.

    nothing too drastic happens... I actually think my midwife appointments are more interactive. My obgyn usually does a scan and that's it... I have to admit they can be really offish with you though... very clinical... but once you get your head around that then its fine... tbh if I have any general pregnancy concerns I see my MW but if its medical based I will speak with my obgyn-

    as you have a low placenta, they will probably just insist on giving you a c section because the possibility of haemorrhage during labour is too high... so they probably wont chat to you too much.. and just give you the facts

    Mind you if you are lucky you'll get a nice one :)
