not sure after that

DesperateHousewife21 Wed 31-Oct-12 16:43:01

I'm in Kent

I've had:
8 week booking in app
12 week nuchal scan + blood test
16 week mw app- discuss blood results (in my case one came back low)
20 week anomaly scan- all fine smile
24 week mw app
28 week mw app + blood test
31ish mw app
34 week me app
36 week mw app
38 week mw app
39/ 40 week mw apps coming up in the next week or so.

I've also had three extra scans at 28, 32 and 36 weeks due to the low hormone found at the blood test so also had bp/ urine checked on those three occasions too.

West Midlands

10 weeks - booking in appointment
12 weeks - scan at hospital (bloods taken)
16 weeks - midwife appointment
20 weeks - scan at hospital
24 weeks - midwife appointment
28 weeks - growth scan at hospital / midwife appointment / bloods to be taken.

That's as far as I've got so far. I am classed as high risk for some stupid reason though so I think I've had an extra midwife appointment and have extra scans.

Hmm, I'll join in and add the international version.

Denmark, East Jutland smile

9 weeks - GP. Blood tests, blood pressure and booking in.
12-14 weeks - Hospital. Dating and nuchal fold scan.
14 weeks - Midwife
14-20 weeks - GP/Nurse. Glucose test(with nasty drink & 2 hour wait) if high risk for diabeties. I didn't have this one.

18-20 weeks - Hospital. Scan
21 weeks - Midwife
25 weeks - GP. General pregnancy check up. Baby's heartbeat, plus blood pressure and something extra if rhesus neg.

I had an extra growth scan at 36 weeks as I'm expecting a 9 predicted 9 pound baby and am a small build.
First baby for me but as far as I know that doesn't change the amount of scans etc

West Sussex

8 weeks - first appt with community mw to choose hospital and be referred
10 weeks - booking in appt at hospital + bloods
12 weeks - nuchal scan + bloods + glucose tolerance test (due to high BMI) + consultant (due to underactive thyroid)
16 weeks - community mw
20 weeks - anomoly scan
24 weeks - bloods + another GTT

not sure after that, but usually see the consultant every 6 weeks due to thyroid and will probably have a growth scan as my last baby was almost 11lbs. I also have to go to a birth choices clinic as I have had a previous section

Chunkychicken Wed 31-Oct-12 18:19:31

OoooOoooOoood Thu 01-Nov-12 09:16:54

Ooh another Cumbrian. We are multiplying!

panicnotanymore Thu 01-Nov-12 09:55:48

East Sussex/Kent borders

NT scan 12 weeks
Booking in 14 weeks
MW appointment 16 weeks
Anomoly scan 18 wks 5
MW appointment 28 weeks

My area is rubbish.... Really really rubbish. If you live near me and are planning a family, move. Total chaos, I've had to fight tooth and nail for the above.

ladymia Thu 01-Nov-12 09:59:16

Ah seems pretty much the same everywhere.

The reason I ask actually is, I will miss my 28 week appt and my MW didn't seem too concerned about this she said we will discuss what will happen at the 24 wk appointment.

A little worried missing it if they do bloods! Wonder if she will just do that on the 24th week appt? hmm

terrywoganstrousers Thu 01-Nov-12 10:19:33

In Cheshire. Second baby- I think primips get around 2-3 more midwife appointments.
10 week initial appointment
12 week booking and dating scan
16 week appointment
20 week foetal anomaly scan
21 week appointment and routine bloods
28 week appointment and routine bloods
32 week appointment
36 week appointment and position scan to check baby head down ( as planned home birth)
If all well with above- 37 week home visit from midwife in which HB pack is dropped off
??? From then on not sure but I think probably 38 and 40 weeks and then down to discretion of midwives.

All my appointments are with the same group of 4 lovely community midwives in the local 'team' as I am under midwifery led care and haven't even been allocated a consultant.

terrywoganstrousers Thu 01-Nov-12 10:21:29

Forgot to say I'm 31+4 so not 100% on anything after that!

madamecake Thu 01-Nov-12 16:10:17

Another Cumbrian here! Currently 10+3.

Group booking in session - 6-8 weeks normally, I was 9.
Individual booking in - tomorrow, I'll be 10+4
Dating scan - 12 weeks (no nuchal translucency here either)

Next midwife appointment should be at 16 weeks, then anomaly scan at 20 weeks.
