Good Morning all, Hope everyone is doing well? Quick question - I went for my 20 week scan 3 weeks ago and thank God everything went well. My gyne said come back in 8 weeks. I asked her did I need to see the doc in the mean time and she said no that myself and babs were healthy. I just think thats a long time without getting the normal checks done, BP, urine etc. Anyone else have those gaps or is that normal practise? Thanks

I've been attending the hopital only a my gp doesn;t do combined care. My appointments were 5 or 6 weeks apart depending on what was happening around then like christmas and easter. I had an appointment at week 34 and my next one isn't until week 39. I thought I would of been going more regular near the end but said I didn't need to but If I'm worried i'll be onto my doctor straight away.
