    This is my first and I had my 38 week one a week ago and she offered me to have a sweep with her at next appointment which would of been 40+3 or I could get one at exactly 40 at the hospital on Monday which I opted for. Because I went with the earlier one I won't see midwife again until baby is here! She said hospital will do sweep at 40 then see me again the following week if still no baby! Xx

    Got one at 38+2 and will need to book one for 40+2 with drs, they don't do 39wk appts here. MW already told me they won't do a sweep at 40 w (it alternates between GP & MW, don't know if the GP can do them) so I guess ill have to wait till 41+2 for it (they only do appointments on a Monday)

    I had one at 36 weeks, then 38 weeks and now at 39. Where I live everyone gets weekly appointments from 37 weeks and onwards.

    Basically every 4 until 28 weeks. Then every three weeks until 34 , then every two weeks and the last weeks are every week

    Next one is 38+4 and the one after is 40+4. I'd like to see her at 40 or 40+1 ideally.

    My mum said they used to see you weekly towards the end but they only seem to do it fortnightly now if you don't have any issues
