    i had my 28 week midwife appt yesterday (the GD blood test) i see her in another 6 weeks but she should have made you a 'well woman' check with the doctor for 3 weeks time?? so you should have a doctor appt in between. hth x

    Yeah tbh I think 8 weeks is a long time, unless you are seeing your doc in between times?

    I see my midwife every four weeks, but I seen her today, which was two weeks from my last appointment and she wants to see me a week today, then every two weeks, until the baby comes.

    I was initially a high risk pregnancy, but I'm not anymore, although I did have a short hospital stay recently, which is why I have been seen today and next week. But regardless she was gonna see me every two weeks from 30 weeks anyway. I don't see my doc though. xx

    no dont see dr before then she just said ill see you in 8 weeks if ive not received a date for scan to check if my plancenta has moved in 2 weeks im to ring her, i think if i may have a placenta praevia i should really be seen every 4 weeks, do u think she has missed the 34 week out by accident?

    if she said "see you in 8 weeks" thats obviously what she was happy with. Perhaps that should fill you with confidence because she is obvo happy with everything, but I'd say if you are concerned try to get an appointment for some time in between.

    I think thats what I would do, 8 weeks seems awful long, especially in pregnancy! x

    I've been seen every four weeks from the start, and now that I'm in my last trimester she's having me in every two weeks. I do think 8 weeks apart is too long!
