    Do you think that's ok? I'll only be 16 weeks exactly. The receptionist couldn't tell me and the midwife wasn't in today when I rang. Silly me booked it a week too early a while back, getting my dates mixed up and not checking in my diary!

    I'm a little pleased because I STILL haven't had my bloods from the early booking in appt done so am keen to get them done! I hope she doesn't send me away and tell me to come back next week!

    What do they do at the 17 week midwife appt, i know I need to take a urine sample, will she check the heartbeat? Oooo I hope so!

    oh really! I did think that 17 weeks was an odd number, 16 is halfway between the 12 and 20 week scan! But that's definately what she said - she also wouldn't let me have my booking in appointment till i was 11 weeks!!! Grrr.

    Anyone would think she didn't like me! :haha:

    Phew though, thanks for that ladies :flower: xx

    Never heard of having a 17 week check. Normally it is 16 weeks. But maybe different over in UK?

    My doctor has checked heartbeat since first appointment at 8 weeks (was internal). Then external from 12 weeks on. They also feel for the top of uterus and ask how you have been feeling and if you have any questions. Also should book you for your 20 week scan.
