  2. Had mine a few days ago. You need to bring a fresh urine sample with you to test for infection/protein/sugar. They'll take your BP, check the baby's HB and have a feel at your tummy. Some check baby's position and some check your fundal height but most agree it's too early before 28 weeks (you next MW appt).

    They'll also ask about whether or not you've felt the baby move yet. If anything flags up, like something in your urine or high BP they'll discuss this with you then and arrange a further appt to check on this.

    Im getting worried ! I thought i needed a 24/25 app, but my midwife doesnt really communicate with me. All i can do is go by the sheet of paper which says 28 weeks.
    I hope I'm not missing out on anything :S

    I never got a 25wk appt with amber.
    I can purely just see 25wk appt for HIP forms.
    As 28wk 1 to me is bloods lol
