    Well, just got back from seeing community midwife at GP surgery for 36 week check. You may recall the issue I had with the hospital giving me the blood results for someone else? When I spoke to them they said they checked my proper results and all was fine?

    Well, they are not, I'm borderline aneamic and need to start taking iron.

    And that's not all. My blood pressure has shot up (I knew my hands and feet had swollen but I thought that was just what happens) so I've got to go for another check on Monday. Got to watch out for other symtoms of pregnancy induced hypertension (not sure if that is the same as preeclampsia?)

    And to top it all off, bubs is not engaged! Head down but not engaged. And midwife who gave me wrong blood results had written "fixed" on notes 2 weeks ago, now my notes say "free".

    Rubbish!
