    Evening Ladies,

    I'm a little confused by a letter that I received from the midwife team today and I hope some of you ladies can put my mind at rest!

    The letter is inviting me to meet the midwife team and discuss antenatal and hospital options. With my last pregnancy I had seen the midwife and had a scan by 11 weeks but this letter says that I am not allowed to book an appointment to meet them until I'm 16 weeks!

    Is this right? They make it sound like I have to wait until I'm 16 weeks before I see a midwife? What about my 12 week scan? :wacko:

    Anyone else had this?

    That doesn't sound right at all and I would call them. You are supposed to see a midwife between 8-12 weeks and certainly have a scan between 10-14 weeks. Call them up, I'm sure they've made a mistake.

    If you wanted to have a NT scan, it would be too late by then, so that can't be right. Ring them, there must be a mistake. I saw m/w at 8 weeks, scan at 11 (supposed to be 12 but pushed back a week when they measured the baby), then another m/w appointment at 12 weeks. I have another appointment and scan at 18 weeks, so that letter really doesn't sound right.
