I saw the Dr on Tuesday evening (a locum as mine is on holiday, but she was nice), she’s given me an EDD as 14th October which is 2 days after most online due date calculators and 2 days before mine! Obviously it’s subject to change once I have a scan.
We went over my previous failed pregnancies and she said she’d note them on my referral to the hospital and request an earlier scan. She understood my concerns, and told me that what I’m feeling and not feeling is perfectly normal for this stage. She also said staying positive would help, so PMA all the way!
Other than that she just went over the normal stuff about folic acid, eating healthy, gentle exercise etc. She gave me a form for free prescriptions etc and a copy of Emma’s Diary with some vouchers for freebies (I like being pregnant, you get loads of free stuff lol!). Then we discussed hospitals, there are now a choice of 3 in our area, so I’ve opted to go to the one with the new midwifery lead unit as they have 3 birthing pools and I’ve ALWAYS wanted a water birth!
All in all a positive appointment I feel, and I took a digi HPT when I got home which is now reading 2-3 yay (never got past 1-2 with the other pregnancies) so all going in the right direction.
Just to have wait for for my appointment for a scan and booking in with the midwife, which from what I understand from the Dr, is now all done on the same day. Hope I don’t have to wait too long for my letter.
