Hi All

15 weeks today and have 16 week appt on the 27th apart from i expect more wee tests, weight measurement and blood tests what will it cover?

Am bloating out weighed myself this morning an up 8lbs on pre pregnancy weight (cry cry) not looking forward to her telling me off for putting on too much. Really hating the weight gain but best get used to it i suppose.

i doubt you;ll get weighed, well... i never was so assume it's not a regular check!

they may try and see if they can get the heartbeat which will be nice smile

i have been told not to bother to make a 16 week apointment as the nhs is "stretched" i have a consultant appointment and iw ill be 14 weeks, the midwife just said... thats close enough to 16 weeks confused

I didn't get weighed (am now 18 weeks). I had a bit of a chat, checked my urine sample and listened to the heartbeat!

I had no more blood tests until 28 weeks (last week) - they just took my blood pressure, tested wee and I lay down on the bed things and they searched for the heartbeat which was nice as it was the first time I'd heard it! all over in 10 minutes!

My 16w check was Urine, Blood Pressure, Fetal HB, then to book all other appointments up to my anti d at 24 weeks.

Weight here is only done at booking and at 12 week scan smile
