Congratulation Ivy!!!! I thought when we hadn't heard from you in a few day's that baba might be on the way!
Delighted to hear everything is going so well & that you found it to be such a positive experience!

Pippington not long for you now

Ms2011 that's so lovely of your family to organise the baby shower for you! Hope you were spoiked rotten

Dublinlady, great to hear from you too & that all is going well! It is amazing how the pregnancy fades to a distant memory so soon when you have a new baby to look after Hopefully the colic will settle soon.
We had a few weeks of it and it was tough going seeing her so uncomfortable.

Curiousmum I'm not actually sure the in's and out's of it. I think you can request it, but they will do their best to discourage it unless there is a valid medical reason for needing it.
This I could be completely wrong on, but that would be my understanding.
The best bet is probably to speak to the midwife when you have your next hospital appointment & she will be able to let you know your particular hospital policy on it.


Joe10000 best of luck to your wife on her first appointment tomorrow!

The further along you get the more visits you'll have with your consultant/GP/midwife, as part of your check up most will listen to the heartbeat with a doppler so you should get many more oppurtunities to hear babs heartbeat :-)

I got my date wrong, my OH's first obstetrician appointment is this Monday. We still do not know what the visit will entail, can somebody outline what to expect ?

Thanks.

First gynae visit entails med history, bloods, urine sample, and in most cases if this is a private obs a scan so your wife should have been told to drink plenty water

Normally the gynae secretary would outline all this when booking the apt.

Lovin' the good weather lately, getting out & about in the fresh air is a real mood booster for me :-)
Walked the doggies, mowed the lawn, tidied round the boarders, did some weeding etc. then listened to my Gentlebirth CDs. Really tired now but the contented tired of doing some physical work, hopefully I'm in for a good nights sleep now :-)

Ooh best of luck! Try not to get too hung up on the doctor saying the baby might arrive soon...mine said he would arrive "within the next few days" on the 2nd of February...he was induced on the 22nd...I was on tenterhooks for 3 full weeks, when if I hadn't thought he was coming early I would have just relaxed...
