Hi I'm really confused and hoping someone can help because the GPs and Hospital have been pretty useless. I found out I was pregnant at around 5 wks and made an appt with my GP. He did the referral letter to the hospital and I made an appt for around the 10 wk mark. At that appt last week I had the booking in stuff (forms etc), blood tests, urine sample and the dating scan which confirmed 10 weeks. My 20 wk scan is confirmed for 25 June at the same hospital. This was all at St Marys in Manchester. Then they told me to contact the community midwives. So i did that today and after much bother have got an appt on 6 May with them - but I don't know what for! I'm really really confused and the nice lady on the phone had the strongest chinese accent so I couldn't understand half of what she said... So is it right to have an appt then with the midwife? is this how it works - everyone tells me different things and no one is really explaining things, which I think is odd as I'm a first timer so you'd think it would be better for them if they were assured I knew what was going on! I seem to be having more appts and earlier than it says on most websites - can anyone offer any advice?!
