...the midwife seemed surprised that I didn't have any questions. I know it's my first, but I've spoken to my mum and some good friends of mine who've assured me over my various symptoms so far, and I'm happy with that.
I don't know what I'm supposed to be like! DP was around most of the time except when he popped upstairs to check on DS1 & 2 playing upstairs (quiet for too long can be worrying with those 2). He's been through it all twice before and we've discussed some things as well.
What was everyone else's first booking in appointment like? Did you have loads of questions? Were you too overwhelmed to think of anything to ask? Were you happy with the way things were going and just didn't have anything to ask at the time? Or am I just weird?
Another thing she didn't seem too amused with was my answer to "Do you have a healthy, balanced diet?" - "Define a healthy, balanced diet" - bit of a disapproving look for that one...
I was surprised to be given the option of both main hospitals in the health authority, a birthing centre and a home birth - I said I'd have a think about it. Considering that one of the hospitals and the birthing centre are about a 30-40 minute drive away and the other hospital is only 10-15 minutes (these being the non-rush hour timings), I think the realistic options on that one are narrowed considerably.
I'm 29 weeks and haven't had any questions for the MW or GP yet because, if I do have any questions I tend to look them up on-line when I think of them rather than save them up for my antenatal appointments. So, I don't think you're weird. Although I'm beginning to think that I'm a bit weird, as we've just been to our first NCT class and was amazed at some of the questions that others had thought of and hadn't just looked up on-line.
