    I've got my first midwife appointment today, what happens?

    I've got a right preggo brain and I've forgot everything everyone has said :blush:

    I remember something about paperworkd and blood tests, but blood tests for what?

    Also, will the m/w need to know what blood group OH is? Cause I'm O rhesus neg I'm not sure if they will ask about his? Cause he doesnt know and his mum doesnt know either.

    They'll run through yours and OH's medical history, maybe take some bloods, check your BP and weigh you.

    Although everywhere is different but thats the general jist of it hun

    on that rhesus question...no they dont need to know....when baby is born they will test the blood from babys placenta, if they have a diff blood group to you you will be given an anti D injection.

    they'll go through you and OH medical history, maybe take blood, do your bp and id take a urine sample aswell. Also when i saw my midwife because there is 3 hospitals near me they asked me to choose which one i wanted to be cared for and have the baby at
