Hi Ladies, I've gone for the combined care optio, filling out the form in my GP's office when I went to have the pregnancy confirmed.I haven't been to the GP since. I had my booking appointment with holles street at 12 weeks and have my first appointment with the consultant next week (16 weeks) and then again at 20 weeks but I'm just wondering when do I start seeing my GP?

Have you an actual visit with consultant at 20 weeks or is it just the anatomy scan? If just scan, make appt to see your GP otherwise go for 24 weeks. There are usually v few appts until you get to about 24wks and then they are more regular.

Hi thanks for the info. SJP2010 I'm semi-private in Holles street. No scan on the first appointment. The just asked me questions about my medical history. Usually they take bloods as well but I faint a lot and since there was only one nurse on duty she said she wouldnt take them unless there was another nurse present so I was in and out in five minutes. PAJ I'm not sure if I will meet the consultant at 20 weeks or whether its just the anamoly scan. Now that you mention it I'm certain I've the scan then but not so sure about meeting the consultant. I'll find out next week when I'm in for the 16 weeks and if I'm not meeting the consultant at 20 weeks Ill book GP appointment for then. Thanks for your help

At your 16week apt they will tell you when to make an apt with gp. In Holles st you have scan at 20 weeks&unless told otherwise you won't see doctor. I was in Holles st last week at booking apt and doc told to make apt with gp at 16 weeks and to come back to Holles st at 20 weeks, same day as scan.
