Okay so I havent seen my mw since 16 weeks and havent had any major issues in between (kidney pain, hip pain etc) and looking at my pink folder, she will check my fundal measurement for the first time, check my urine for protein and my BP.
Is there anything I should be asking considering at this time? I have started to make a little list of things - I want to ask her when we take the birth centre tour (I am being caseloaded by a MW at my birthing centre instead of being looked after by a community mw) as I know my hubby was asking where do we go etc when the time comes. I'm also going to ask her about the pelvic/hip pain I have been experiencing recently. I already know pretty much what I want in my birth plan (G&A only unless I ask for it/it is recommended for baby/my health, for hubby to be handed our baby once cleaned rather than passed immediately to me and then passed to me for skin to skin after a few minutes) I also need to ask what happens when I go into labour - i.e. do I call the unit straight away so that my MW can be alerted (she lives about 30 miles away). Also we are going away when I am 30+5 for a week - I guess I should ask what do I do in the event that something happens....
Any other ideas welcome

i did that with my son, got my other half to cut the cord then once he had been checked i ask for him to hold him first, they looked at me like "Are you sure" but it felt the right thing to do for me as for the rest ilbe just as lost this time round, with my son they broke my waters so iv no idea what that feels like or when i would have to go in its crazy how each time is different xxx
