Post subject: just want to ask....
im going for my first appointment with my midwife on 28th march-i will be 11.5 weeks gone. what should i expect? does she confirm which hospital i will be giving birth in? will i have to have a vaginal examination? i really do not want this.lol will she tell me what foods i should be avoiding? xxx

Yeah when i went for my first apt - i was only 6 weeks - she referred me to the Hospital - she said i would hear from them - got a letter a few days after and rang up and they booked me in for my 12 week scan
I didnt get examined - apart from taking my blood pressure - she told me what foods to avoid and gave me a leaflet and that was that

[color=violet]i went for my first appt today, i was just given my bounty pack and told the hospital would writing to me with my 12week scan date, also had to do urine sample so they could test for infections. they also informed me of next midwife appt and gave me a pot to do another urine sample when i go again (apparnetly we will have loads of urine samples taken) and told they take a blood test at next appt - which really scared me as i hate needles lol. dont know how im going to cope with labour!!
