    I was just wondering how oftern you are seeing your MW's?

    People i know who live near me have been seeing their MW's every week from 36 weeks, but i however seem to be seeing mine less.

    I saw my mw at 35 weeks then again today at 38 (not my usual mw as she was on holiday) and then i wont see her again till my due date at 40weeks.

    Is this normal?

    Its just concerning me a little (not a lot) as when i saw her at 35 weeks she said Mya was at the brim, well i know Mya has moved down, my bump has completely dropped since then and it feels like i have a football between my legs when i walk, BUT today the cover mw said oh she's def down BUT has written she is at the brim again.

    I thought at the brim ment at the top of the pelvis and not engaged at all.

    I've just started seeing my mw fortnightly.
    brim probably means 1/5 engaged, but if a dif midwive, maybe she does it the other way round, so 4/5?

    i see mine every 2 week now then every week from 38 weeks.. bt will be difficult with christmas and the new year so will have to see. My midwife mentioned at my last appointment (34 weeks) that she thought he was at the brim and just starting to engage so assume like you at the brim is like you say... sorry not much help

    I saw mine every 2 weeks, last app was at 38+5 and I was worried as due to Xmas she's not back until I would be 41+3!! which isn't helpful!

    I'm actually being induced on Sun now due to my BP but if that wasn't happening she said I'd have to go to a drop in session at my hospital (they run them every Saturday).

    Not sure about the brim comment though....I wouldn't worry too much as I've read lots of people say they can wait right until labour until they engage!

    Hrmm... I thought at my 25 week appointment the midwife said starting at 28 weeks I'd be switching from monthly to bimonthly and I have a vague recollection that at my first appointment she mentioned switching to weekly some point closer to my due date.

    Mine was every 6 wks at begining til 30wks then 34, 36, 38 - I think thats enough for me anyway - I have had no concerns/problems during the pregnancy.

    Remember if you do really want to see her - just phone and make an appointment!

    I only see mine every 4 weeks (which started at 28 wks - before that it was 6 wks). So 28, 32, 36. Then I see my GP at 38, and MW again at 40.
