Hi Knighty

To be honest the first appointment is more about them asking you and your DH loads of questions about your medical history and giving you info to take away.

I think the only things you need to be sure you come away with (which you should do anyway) is who to contact in the event of a problem, what your scan and appointment schedule looks like and whether you book these or they contact you. Obviously you can also ask any questions that you might have but you don't necessarily have to have any!

Enjoy! It makes it real...!

Oh Knighty, good luck and like Bubble said - enjoy it!

The midwife should go through everything and give you a chance to ask any questions that might pop into your head while she is talking.
Let us know how you get on.

No, i don't think so but as long as you can answer any questions they might ask about him. For example, they will want contact details for him and some medical history but i'm sure you will be ok to answer.

Edited just to add - looked at my notes and they asked if dh had any history of heart problems, diabetes, congenital abnormalities, twins in the family - that's it really.

Hope that helps

Not crucial I suppose but they do like it because they ask you about medical history on both the maternal and paternal sides (and I think they like to check you out as a couple :snigger:). You can always get back to them with anything you're not sure of though.
