Hiya girls!

I'm 8 weeks 3 days pregnant with my first ;)

I had a phonecall from my midwife this morning, apparently i missed my booking in appointment but i never recieved my letter, i've been rescheduled for 30th Sept and i was just wondering what the appointment involves, do they just take bloods and weigh you? x

Forms. Loads and loads of forms to fill out. About your medical history, your family's and your partner. Calculation of pre-pregnancy BMI, blood pressure, bloods and answering of any questions you have. Advice about eating etc..
It might be different in each area though.

mine was done at home.

yes a million and one questions about you / your partner / all your families etc and bloods etc
also got given lots of info and leaflets.

really not exciting though, more of a formalilty

They do urine as well, so take a sample if you dont fancy doing it there.

Ive been for mine today nothing exciting just bloods and forms - I said to DH though four weeks of various health professionals now and not a single one has managed to say congratulations lol

My midwife said congrats to me at my first appt when i was just over 5 weeks gone, she was shocked that i hadn't seen my gp before her though but i said i rang the receptionist to say i'd self tested and they booked me straight in with her!!

I'm just worried about this missing letter, she's sent me a new one today with my 20th Sept appt so i can intercept that tomorrow, i still live with my mum and dad who dont know i'm expecting yet and my dad sometimes opens my post by mistake, i just pray the missing letter never turns up before i've broken the news x

I wouldnt worry about the letter too much. My letter came while I was at my booking appointment(luckily they phoned to confirm). smile
