    So i go in and straight away she asks why i am seein her and not a midwife so i tell her...she tells me to jump on the couch as normal so i do and she just stares at me and my belly for about a minute....then starts prodding it with 2 fingers and DOESNT check babies heartbeat, doesnt check my urine!
    Says my bp is highish for me, asks if i have headaches and blurred vision, i said yes i do she asked was it today i said no she goes oh well thats ok then....After being tested for pre-eclampsia last wek because of all this.....


    So i asked her what do i do now and she says "i dont know".....call the hospital and ask for a sweep!!!

    OMG!!!!!

    She made me feel like such an inconvenience and she didnt help me at all i just walked out! ITS MY DUE DATE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

    I would get on the phone first thing in morning and tell them you not happy and stressed because of this.
    What was she thinking??
    You should have had bubs HB checked,asked about their movements,BP done ,everything.

    I would go mad on the phone,she is at fault.
    And it is worse having you sit at home for a week stressing about this.
    Not good for you or bubs.
    Definitley call them hun xxx

    Ring that babes and either a) demand to be seen for a 'proper' appointment or
    b) get sweep booked !

    i think the healthcare service (NHS) is deteriorating so fast .... the care that i have received during my pregnancy has been horrendous i will be making a complaint once all this is over ... x x

    Awwww huni!!! i would be doing the same thing!! Call the clinic and let them have a piece of your mind. There is no way they can treat you like they have!
    You need to be treated alot better than that!!!!

    Are you due today (the 16th) as well or???
