We had a midwife appointment last Friday afternoon. Penny wasn't looking forward to it as she'd not exactly hit it off with the lady at the first appointment. As it happens that one was on leave, so we got somebody else. She was absolutely lovely and when Pen mentioned her uneasiness about the first one suggested we go to the drop-in centre near us for the next appointment and see if we get on better with the lady there.

All samples are showing good results. Mum-to-be and baby were both pronounced healthy and we got to hear a nice strong heartbeat. Better, probably as a result of being prodded with the heartbeat monitor, the baby decided to make its presence felt to Penny, so she's now happy she can feel it moving.

Next up, second scan on 27th Sept; consultant appointment on 7th October and next midwife appointment to be made towards the end of October.

Awesome! Good luck with sorting out a decent midwife, it makes all the difference.

Glad things are going well for you, and I hope you get a miodwife you're happy with. Feeling you are in capable hands in that regard is a big thing not to have to worry about.

S was teaching an NCT course in London at the weekend (NCT teachers are somewhat under-employed in Mid-Wales, but in the Smoke there is so much demand that they have to import talent from elsewhere). One of the women on the course is now 32 weeks pregnant has has yet to see any midwife at all - all her appointments thus far have been with her GP. S was horrified!
