Consultant appointment

We had our first consultant appointment today, after being referred because of my BMI. Was quite a short appointment, and we didn’t actually see the consultant, but one of his staff. I had to do a urine sample when I got there, the results from this were fine. Then had my blood pressure taken, this was also fine. Then just went through a bit of history, like medical problems, procedures etc., obviously mentioned about the PCOS, then she asked whether we had fallen pregnant naturally or with help, I obviously mentioned the clomid then, then she wanted to know how many rounds and on how much. She mentioned about having to have a GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test, to test for gestational diabetes (GD)) because of my BMI, for which I already have an appointment for next month. After this I have to go back to the hospital on the 21st December for the result. If it is okay, then I no longer need to attend the hospital and can just carry on with normal midwife appointments. If it’s not okay, then I will be referred to the relevant department of the hospital.


She asked if we wanted to hear baby’s heartbeat, of course I said yes! I didn’t think we would be hearing it today, thought we would have to wait until our midwife appointment in just under two weeks. We got to hear it, one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I think my only word was ‘wow’! I can’t wait to hear it again.

  1. So glad it all went well… When we were TTC hearing the heartbeat was one of the things I was getting most excited about, I was going to buy a Doppler so I could hear it all the time… That wont happen now, but I still cannot wait to hear our babies heartbeat (whenever that it) xxx
