    It varies depending on what area you are in, but generally the following things happen -

    The midwife will -

    - Calculate your due date from your last LMP
    - Take a medical history
    - Take your blood pressure
    - Weigh you
    - She may take bloods at this visit, or it may be at 16 weeks
    - Refer you for a scan
    - Discuss your concerns and answer questions
    - Give you booklets, information etc

    Hope that helps xxx
