I had my booking in appointment with the midwife today so she is now requesting a date for my 12 week scan so should hear back soon.
Hollie got very scared when she took my blood pressure and really didnt know what to make of it all. But everything is fine so far, she doesnt think i am carrying twins after feeling my tummy, so thats one less thing to worry about. I have to go and have my bloods done sometime next week and have already been given pots to wee in when i next see her. I hate that bit, can never pee when i have to even if i am busting as soon as i see the pot my urge goes away lol.
I dont see her again until 16 weeks and after that not again until 28 weeks, which is so different to with Hollie where i was seen every 4 weeks. But i will see her every monday at the breastfeeding group so i suppose i can ask her anything then if i am worried about something.
It all finally seems real, especially as i have been given all my notes already which i didnt get until after the 20 week scan last time.
And they printed my address wrong on the sticky labels so Hollie was allowed to keep them which ended up with everything being plastered with sticky labels, 4 A4 pieces of paper worth of stickers lol.

it does feel very different second time round! i've hardly seen my mw at all! they think cos you've done it once you can do it again no problem.. only problem is with a pregnancy brain, i can't remember very much from first time round! haven't even discussed antenatal classes this time round.. and i've less than 8 weeks now!
looking forward to hearing about your scan - it's so exciting when you see them moving about for the first time.. i think it's rubbish healthy pregnancies only get 2 scans!! i haven't seen sproglet for 12 weeks now!

It is certainly very different this time round, i think i am the same though pregnancy brain has certainly kicked in and i am very forgetful.
I wont be able to get a scan picture if it is the same as with Hollie. The 12 week scan means we arent allowed pictures to save time on their behalf. Thats what i remember reading last time, something to do with the time it takes to print them, although if i remember from her 20 week scan it wasnt very long at all. But that is their policy so i have to wait until 20 weeks to get a picture.

that's really rubbish! it only takes a few seconds to print out the picture - and how many times are you going to get the chance to have a picture of your baby at 12 weeks?! ours printed out an extra copy for a donation towards the paper costs, so we could send them to shawn's family in south africa
i would make a fuss about it if i were you - start crying, that usually works!!
