I've only seen her twice up to now...this is the NHS' idea of caring for a woman having her second child with a "low risk" pregnancy. She didn't do the doppler and in fact I asked her about it last time. She said she doesn't normally do it til after 26wks because it's "hard to locate the HB" (even though I'm sure I remember getting it earlier with Daniel), but when I went into hospital a few weeks ago to make sure I wasn't leaking fluids, they did the doppler and found the HB right away, no problem.
The main purpose of seeing her is to get my MAT B1 form to state when I want to take mat leave should my contract be extended, and so that my employer can give me the form I need to claim maternity allowance. Bit of a boring necessity really. Our surgery isn't equipped for ultrasounds.
I remember the nurse getting Amelia's heartbeat with the doppler about 18 weeks. but my doctor refused to even try and let us know whether she was a boy or a girl till at least 28 weeks, he said before that is hard to tell which i know is wrong because i see ladies on here finding out at 15 weeks on. I suppose it depends on the doctor or the nurse at the time. Let us know how you get on with the appointment.
Any new bump pics to share with us?
