So it seems that because I live " out of area" of my registered dr's, I can't have a midwife from there!!! (thats what i was told originally) I live about 20 plus miles from my GP but as I have had the same dr for 24 years I decided that no matter what I will never change to another surgery, so my medical records remained under the address of my parents which is slightly closer but still out of area. Anyway, they told me they'd find me a midwife closer to my house, turns out the one they originally found was 2 bus journeys away which would not be appropriate for a 7 month pregnant woman if you asked me... I never got an appointment to see this midwife at this new surgery so I spoke to my dr's who told me to forget the MW in the "new place" because they'll book me one from my GP. weeks going by and no appointment. I'll be 10 weeks on Monday and if they leave it any longer i'll probably not get a scan at 12 weeks due to the 3 week wait time to see a midwife for booking appointments. I'll be near 13 weeks by then and I havent so much as even spoken to a midwife about going for my appointment.... anyone else in similar positions??? With DS I had an early scan at 7+4 because of bleeding, saw a midwife at 8 weeks and didnt have another scan after that until around 15 weeks and nor did I see a midwife inbetween my first appointment at 8 weeks and my scan at 15... I dont think it's right making pregnant women wait like this.
