Hello ladies . I'm 9weeks and 5days pregnant and two days ago I had my very first appointment with midwife . Time maybe 15 min ..she only checks high waight and blood pressure . I know from my friends and my sis in low that in every case on first appointment and every time u see your midwife she check for baby heartbeat ... When I ask her if she can do that just to put us peace in mind that baby is ok she told me that being 9weeks and 5days is to early for that ...when I ask her if she can do it when I'm over 10weeks which next she is gonna come to my home she told again that is to early to hear baby heartbeat .... I'm sorry but I was so angry with the lie she told us that I just want to leave from the room and tell her don't bother ..I can see how much u care special for couple like we r going throug so much to come to that stage . She was careless ...like we say "just tick the box"... Becouse of that 2morrow we got privet scan book paying £75 just to see if baby is ok .... I know u can hear baby Heratbeat from week 8 ...I understand if she told us I don't have much time to check for ...then lie that is to early ... Girls how was your first visit with midwife ..?did u experience anything like it ? Xx
