I saw a doctor at 5 weeks who sent me for an early scan to check dates. He gave me a choose and book appointment number for my scan at 12 weeks, which i booked and is next week. The doctors seemed a bit confused about the whole things (even though im sure they MUST do this all the time!) and gave me the wrong number etc to start with.
But other than that i have had no contact with a midwife, the hospital posted me a little booklet about having a baby and i had a question sheet abotu my ethnic origin etc but no notes or anything.
Does this sound right? I was in hospital a week or two ago because i was sick and no one really queried it but i know with my other pregnancies (totally different area though) I had had a booking in appointment before now.
I was thinking of calling the scan number tomorrow as this is the only number I have and the doctors surgery is useless. What do you think? should i call or just turn up on wednesday for the scan i have booked?
Powered, it may be that you are being consultant led at the hospital and they want you to book in there first. Do you know if you are being midiwfe led or consultant led? You should be able to find the hospital number on the internet and see if your Dr has referred you.
With my first PG's I booked in after the 12 week scan with a hopital midwife, this time it was with a hospital midwife at 9 weeks. I havn't had any contact with my GP practice at all other than to give me the midwife's number.
Ivortheengine8 I think i will be consultant led as i have high blood pressure and preeclampsia in my previous 4 pregnancies - perhaps this is the reason then? anyway thanks for your replies i will see what they say on wednesday!
