Booking in with the midwife

Well we had our booking in appt. with the midwife last Wednesday, it went quite well! 


Got there, went through medical/family history, last AF etc., gave us our EDD which is the 10th March – I had it as 9th March, so not too far off, though it will probably change again at our 12 week scan! Then had to do pee sample, took lots of blood from me (ouch!), gave me lots of reading material! Then I had to get my height measured and weighed, to work out my BMI. Well, it turns out my BMI is just on the borderline (BMI 30) to be under consultant led care. So she is referring us back to our FC consultant. Quite happy about this actually as he knows our history etc., though he’ll probably have to be refreshed when we see him! She said though, this means I will more than likely be given extra growth scans, and will be tested for diabetes around 28 weeks. Extra care is good.


Oh, and our scan is on Friday the 26th, so less than 3 weeks now! So excited to see our baby!
