I was due to see my gp for a check-up this morning, (havent had check-up for 2weeks) but the surgery is closed as he committed suicide at the weekend. I am not inclined to go knocking on other gp's doors this week, I feel that I will be ok until my hospital app on 25th. Can any-one confirm that is ok? Baby is moving well.
No, I'm not under a midwife as such, in ireland we are seen at certain intervals by the hospital, where the midwives and consultants are based, with more frequent check-ups by gp in between. I'm sure I'll be ok, but just wondered if there was anything in particular to watch out for around this time.
I am being checked every two weeks because of the gestational diabetes. With your diabetes, I would think you should be monitored very closely at this point. Are you having any scans soon? I think I would ring the hospital and tell them that you are GPless and see what they say.
Lua, the hamper sounds lovely, I have been planning what goodies to buy to hide in my hospital bag, but at this stage I would probably have eaten it six times over by now!
Yes last time I was checked baby was big, maybe I'll phone the hospital tomorrow, or go to another gp. I'd say they are all very busy now this week with our surgery closed and I dont like to get in the way of "real" illnesses iykwim? I'd hate it if they told me to go away.
