This might be normal. I don't know. Had a lot of sickness probs right through and it seems that whilst the doc has been trying to get the hospital to take it more seriously its only when the midwife did the last check up on Thursday that they've listened. I'm on iron tablets for anaemia, though they don't think they're working as well as should be, so may have to increase. And more importantly the bump just isn't growing. the previous scans were all fine, and the baby really is a very regular mover. If I'm really lucky I'll get three whole hours sleep before a kick in the bladder I haven't been coping well with the heat, but didn't even mention this to midwife as thought was a common pregnancy thing - its hot, we suffer more, but she immediately noted it when I went in and wrote that down too, saying have you been suffering through out summer. Yes, hasn't everyone? So that was an extra concern, though I'm not sure why. Now she's arranged a growth scan, annoyed I was having to wait a week for it after saying it was nothing to worry about (as I've always had very low bmi is probably just me that's small and not the baby as measured big at the previous scans), yet I've got to see the consultant to have a look at the scan, and likely to be seeing them for rest of pregnancy. Whilst I'm happy that means might have an improved solution on sickness front and I know I'll be well looked after, is there really nothing to worry about, and is it normally the consultant that looks at 28wk growth scan? Also have to keep reminding them that I'm 28, I look about 15/16 and if I don't remind them they tend to have the attitude to 'not tell me things for my own good' as I'd only worry more. Can be a pain
