Had first midwife appointment. The midwife was young and chirpy, and afterwards I thought maybe she'd been around during H's birth, should ask her. My iron was a little low (130?) and unsurprisingly my BP was v low. I was glad to see she stressed that the tests they have are all voluntary, so I'm wondering whether t o forgo the diabetes one they always have, which involves a mini fast and a disgusting sweet drink. In the UK it was tested every time with a urine sample, no starving or anything like that. She didn't check the heartbeat, which I was surprised at as they often find it at even an earlier date. But I'm supposed to have the ultrasound soon so I suppose I'll hear it then, Finally I'll be sure I am really pregnant!! (Of course I am, trousers are getting distinctly tight now.)

Had some spotting last night. I checked on the Internet and most seemed to say should get it checked (US websites admittedly, litigation in forefront of minds?). So I rang the equivalent of NHS direct who gave me the Women's clinic number. They said as it had stopped to wait and see if anything else happened and call again...
