    I was just wondering how many of you were taking your OH's to your booking in appointment and will it be worth it?

    Won't she just ask loads of question and take blood and weigh you etc.

    I don't really think it's worth his while to come. I think it'll be Health questions and history , blood pressure done, blood taken, and being given a load of leaflets and stuff.

    If she did the heartbeat and we could hear it then I'd tell him to come but I think it'll be too early at 10w4d for her to do that.
    She might book my 12 week scan though :happydance:

    He would love to come but it's hard getting the time off work and if it's not important there's no point. He might as well just come to the scans.
    I'll ask him tonight and see what he wants to do, because I don't mind either way.

    I've asked him and if I want him to come he will. He would love to come to every appointment but its hard to get off work and if nothings happening there's really no point. So he's going to come to the important ones like scans and hearing the heartbeat etc.

    I'm quite happy to go alone, doesn't bother me in the slightest.
    And I know more about his family history than he does (he never listens :lol: ).
    So I'm all prepared and just counting down the days.

    Thanks for the advice.
