... nothing much happened at mine, didn't check BP or anything!! Just filled out maternity exemption cert. and gave me booklets and sent me on my jolly way!! Different from when when I had my daughter!
Same with me. I had a million questions but my gp was just all giddy because I was pregnant. He listened to my belly, regisitered my with the hospital and stabbed me with the flu Jab then sent me on my way.
Pretty much same at my 1st docs app checked my blood pressure and filled in couple of forms and sent me on my way. Midwife app was alot more in detail, i forgot all my questions to so am going to write it all down as she told me xx
Nothing much happened at mine. She told me my estimated due date and got me to book midwife appointment at 8weeks as midwife goes to Dr surgery one day a week. No blood pressure check, no leaflets, no form filling... Guess more will happen at next appointment!
mine asked me if i was happy about it gave me the number to contact the midwife thats it i think its the shortest amount of time ive ever spent in the docs! didnt even give me a chance to ask any questions :s
Boatload of paperwork. Quick discussion of medical history and then a quick exam (BP, quick internal to check position of uterus and then HB check). They can't usually get a HB with the doppler at my first visits though so I never expect to hear it. I usually can't hear by doppler until 12 weeks and my 1st appointments are always around 10 weeks. This time it was 9 weeks.
