    Do you need to give another sample? They gave me a big baby book at my first appt and told me it was my bible.

    I had bloods taken, gave a urine sample in a bottle with powder, height , weight, blood pressure, went over family history, allergies, past illnesses, general health etc and ask where you might like to give birth , going through what to avoid, what to take, x

    They did the food thing and where to give birth at my first appointment, was a bit overwhelming since I didn't think about it what so ever. haha!

    When I found out I was they asked me to go down to the doctors to give in a sample, once that came through the receptionist phoned me to confirm results and asked me whether I would like to see the doctor or MW (She attends my doctors once a week). When I went to see MW she just told me what I wasn't allowed, gave me prescription for Folic and gave me leaflets, my book and maternity notes. She also made my booking appt for me, asked where I would like to give birth, told me I'd get a Carbon test and since then I had a letter for my scan appt. So this will be my first appt at the hospital.
