hi. I though i was pregnant due to missed period, I booked an appointment at community health centre to get a pregnancy test done (Not blood test). Before the appointment i brought a home pregnancy test and it was positive. Went to the appointment at CHC, test there was positive. Got an appointment at GP and he said he doesn't deal with pregnancy as he doesn't know enough but he order the usual blood test to check the iron levels, and all the other junk they check for (No pregnancy test though), and referred me to the Antenatal clinic ran through the hospital. They dont usually take patients until they are 10 weeks at least but i was only 7 weeks but with help of my mother she convienced them to see the doctor there. I went to that appointment and he asked me about family history, whether i smoked, asked about the blood tests, and a few other things to fill in the yellow card. He wrote two thing on the bottom of the card which were only intials to some tests and didn't even tell me what they meant. The next appointment, also with a doctor, NT scan (Hope u know what i mean, i cant spell it) was organised which was what one of the things the first doctor wrote on the card. The next aapointment was with a midwife and they started to check blood pressure and feel my stomach/uterus. I was only 15 weeks so it was the second midwife appointment i got to hear baby's heartbeat.
To cut a Long story short, my weight was never checked, urine never checked, even if i was pregnant or not was never checked, my dates whether they were right or not was not checked, ultrasound was only organised at appointment just before it needed to happen, i didnt even get my booking letter until I was 20 odd weeks along. I think i was 28 weeks before i got the booking letter. I was never told about tests i needed until they had to happen, and i never got a proper explaination to why they needed to be done.
Now, How does your appointment sound compared to mine??
But all is good I have a 3 and a half week old little boy, healthy as anything.
