I went and registered with a new doctors today and mentioned about being pregnant and having a midwife appointment in a few weeks. She tried to book me in for one next week when il be roughly 6 weeks but I thought people didn't really have them until 9-10 weeks? x
Ah okays. I just thought it was meant to be 8 weeks. I think il get in there early does everyone take their other half with them to the appointment? Mine really wants to come but because he's self employed grounds worker if he dosnt work he dosnt earn and id rather he works. What do people usually do? x
No need to take partner particularly..other than for his family medical history which they do ask for..but i imagine you can answer that at a later date if you are not sure of answers.. Nice for him to go if he wants to but not neccesary..better to take time off for the scans!
My surgery gave me my pack before the appointment and there was a list in there of the pages I should read through and start to fill out in advance of the appointment. If you can't take your partner it's worth getting medical history of any hereditary conditions running in his side of the family, or any history he has of hearing problems.
I would def call them now about the scan Shantoto. Where I am they can't book you in without having done the booking spot first but that might not be the same where you are. If it comes to it though and you miss the nuchal cut off they can give you a seperate test a couple of weeks later that gives you the odds a different way.. Or you might not be bothered about the nuchal at all in which case you can have first scan at any point I think!
