    Well, after waiting 2HRS!!!! We finally got in to see her and she was lovely, really nice...........

    I hadn't had my booking in bloods done so she did them straight away, then blood pressure which was fine as was Urine sample (which is a frst, YAY).

    I then layed on the couch as she wanted to try for fetal heartbeat and to measure the fundal height.................we heard the heartbeat, which was ACE!!!! Paul thinks it sounded like a train, but I didn't hear any whistles :wink: so that was good, fundal height was 17cm, so measured for 17 weeks, but that is normal, even tho I am 16 wks, you give or take 2cm!

    Then I asked about a pain I have had in my groin for a while now and it turns out it is something to do with the ligaments and the pelvis, don't as me what it's called, I have problems remembering all of these problems :roll: so I have to go off to my GP for a Physio referal!

    Anyway the way I see it is, I don't care how bad the pregnancy is, it will be worth it in the end, and I am really keeping my fingers crossed for an easy birth as compensation :wink:

    And to top it all, I am sure I can feel baby rolling now for sure :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    Well thats it from me, next appoinment is my 20 wk scan on the 16th Oct, the the MW & Consultant at 28 weeks!

    Anyone else had or got any appointments coming up? xx

    Hi there. My next appt is 22.09.06, have 2nd scan. We're hoping to find out what it is, so long as bubs is cooperative. Then I have consultants appt 10.01.07. Had emergency section last time around so they're keeping an eye on me, how blooming irritating!! But I'll put up with going backwards & forwards here & there. So long as I give birth naturally I gon't care. Another section isnt on my cards that's for sure. :D :)

    I had my MW appointment on wednesday! She was really nice aswell. She wants me to go for a dating scan if they will let me have one! LO is not on the side it should be either so MW had trouble finding the HB! Its so nice to hear it for the first time and that wave of relief is such a wonderful feeling! :lol:

    Awwwww hun it is such a shame there are some MW out there like that.........they have to realise how concerned and excited we are, and they should be able to offer such a simple service to you!!!

    I hope you get to see a different and nicer one next time babe xx
