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?
I just cheked my appointment card, the standard is:
24 weeks - GP
28 weeks - GP (or hospital if this is your first baby)
30 weeks - GP
32 weeks - Hospital
34 weeks - GP
36 weeks - Hospital
37 weeks - GP
38 weeks - Hospital
39 weeks - GP
40 weeks - Hospital
do youave your combined care card? it has on there the recommended visit times by week. I haven't mine with me so can't remember what they are but they were pretty regular!
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.
