But by the sounds of it I am lucky to be seen as often as I am! How's your bp doing at the moment? Did you say you have the date for your c section booked? That must be exciting to know when your LO will be coming!
I know what you mean hun! I hate when i get a different midwife and you have to explain things all over again that you mentioned the week before AND they always tell you something different! Like when i asked about sections, one told me point blank no natural sections, no delayed cord clamping. The next one said no its not done.. THEN my normal midwife came back and i got "of course you can! they prefer to do that now" I wish she was going to be in theatre with me. My BP is stable just now Its come back down and yesterday was sat at 148/78 My section is booked for 5th March at 38+6 4 weeks and 6 days to go It is good to know when he is coming as my mum has now booked the day off work and there is no worry about not having someone to watch DS1

I think 2nd and subsequent time mums have 7 appointments where as a ftm has 10? But if you ever feel worried you can book an appointment in the big gaps between your appointments. But also if a problem ever arrises your appointment schedule could change.

mine for instance

booking - 10 weeks (home visit)
scan - 12 weeks
midwife -15 weeks quad blood test (home visit)
Consultant - 16 weeks
Consultant - 18 weeks
Anomoly scan - 21 weeks
midwife - 25 weeks
GTT and Anesthetist - 26 weeks
Consultant and Growth Scan & full blood works - 28 weeks
midwife full blood works - 29 weeks
midwife full blood works - 30 weeks
midwife full blood works - 31 weeks
Consultant and growth scan & Book c-section - 32 weeks
midwife - 33 weeks
midwife full blood works - 34 weeks
midwife - 35 weeks
Consultant & Growth Scan - 36 weeks
midwife - 37 weeks (could change to consultant)
midwife - 38 weeks (could change to consultant)
Into maternity Ward night before c-section for monitoring and bloods - 38+5
C-section - 38+6

damn thats a long list lol x

Yeah some of the midwives I have seen have always reminded me that I can book extra appointments if I wanted, I think if anyone tells anyone they can't then they are wrong, you can have as many or as few as you wish as far as I can tell. It's just with them being so busy they encourage you to have as few as required. My next one is on Valentines day where I hope to hear she is no longer breech lol!! Although feeling her today I think she may have flipped!! (Wishful thinking lol!!)

Wow plastik that is awesome to have so many appointments and scans! I'm well jell lol, but like you say you pay for that service. I think here in the UK we are lucky to have the NHS where we don't pay, it's just that sometimes that can lead to rushed service that isn't always giving you 100% attention. Sometimes I find I have to be forceful with healthcare professionals to get what I want/need, which is fine for me but I do worry about people who might not be as bolshy and loud as me lol!! (I can be very demanding lol!!)
