    I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow and I've still not seen my midwife, is this normal? my sister is with the same Doctors and she went when she was 7 weeks.

    I rang the receptionist last week and she checked but there was no appointment scheduled for me, so I left my details again and she said they would be in touch.

    I'm worried that they wont be able to book me in for my 12 week scan in time!

    Sorry for the rant!!

    :hissy:

    I'm seeing mine today :happydance: and I'm 5 weeks, I think it depends on how early you find out and the area you live in.

    Doctors here wont see you untill you are 12 weeks unless you have had complications in the past , I got to go in at 9 weeks . But before that I went to my family doc and got a script for prenatals right away .
