I'm getting increasingly frustrated and worried.
I found out I was pregnant about 5 weeks ago, it was a total shock as I was on BC, but both me and my partner are very happy. I THINK I am about 11 weeks, although I could be further along, I was going through a very stressful time and can't remember exactly when my last period was. I think it was the 6.1.12 but I also have a feeling my period before that wasn't normal.
I had an appointment with my doctor 3 weeks ago, he basically said congratulations, checked my BP and said I would be referred to the mid-wife.
I call the practice a week and a half later and they said my referral was going through that day and not to contact the practice about it, the hospital will contact me directly.
I still haven't had my booking in appointment, or even heard from the mid-wife.
I also haven't had any real symptoms of been pregnant.
My boobs are bigger (boyfriend said at least double in size) and they were very tender for a while but not so now. I've had very little sickness. Sometimes I have been very tired but thats not really anything out of the ordinary for me. I have also seemed to catch every cold and bug possible, in fact I'm currently battling tonsillitis. My BF and mum both say I look healthier, and they both think I'm further along in the pregnancy as I'm really starting to show.
This is my second pregnancy, I miscarried about 10 years ago, and I had bad morning sickness then. I had it 24/7 and I couldn't smell or go near spicy or strong smelling food. I was also tired and emotional all the time. But I have nothing like that this time.
I'm really starting to worry, and I'm having horrible nightmares.
I want to have a down syndrome test (my dads brother was severely handicapped, and my nan had 7 miscarriages) and need to be tested for toxoplasmosis antibodies. I'm also Rhesus Negative.
I really don't know what to do, and I'm getting really frustrated just sitting and waiting.
I call my doctors surgery again yesterday and got a snotty receptionist telling me that my referral had been sent and I would hear from the midwife and the stop contacting them as they don't have anything to do with it.
I then asked if I could contact the hospital/midwife directly and they said no. I did find a number online but again when I called I got the same useless answers and was told to wait to be contacted by post. I'm so angry
