It's my 1st pregnancy on NHS. Last had a scan at 24 wks and all was well. Now 29 wks and haven't been to the hospital since and still not booked for any appts. Wondering is this normal and when the next appointment would typically take place.
If this is a second or more pregnancy (even if the 1st on the NHS) then appointments differ as government guidelines say women who have already been pregnant and are low risk only need to see the midwife seven times(!) in the entire pregnancy.
I last saw the community midwife at 16 weeks, my next appointment is 28 weeks (this week), then 34 weeks, 36 weeks, 38 weeks, and 40 weeks.
Your blood tests all need to be repeated around 28 weeks so it may be worth getting in touch with the community midwife to organise this, if you don't have a number then your GP surgery will be able to give you it.
I think its normal to have bloods etc done at 28 weeks, at least thats what midwife implied to me,
I have seen midwive every 3 weeks since 13 weeks, and also at 9 and 5 weeks. Its my 1st pregnancy and uncomplicated, everything going along as it should so far. Im 28 weeks now and have an appt this week.
They step up in the last tri, particularly if there are reasons for concern. I'm seeing someone every week now (I'm 35 weeks) as my BP is high. My midwife tells me that she wants to see me and it's up to me to make the appointment.
