I know the NHS are currently bogged down with swine flu sufferers but this shouldn't affect their maternity team right?
Two weeks ago I had my first appointment with my midwife who filled out a bunch of forms and generally offered me very little in the way of advice on how to deal with a twin pregnancy.
She wrote that I was high risk, that I'd have 5 losses and that I had had some bleeding already, and that I should be under consultant care and looked after as a special case.
After we lost Matthew they said our next pregnancy would be looked after more closely too!
So much for that - so far I've heard nothing from the hospital. I'm due to get a Nuchal scan in 2 weeks - but I don't have a date for it yet, I should have been given some advice on the first trimester on getting through and what I should be doing with regards to healthy eating etc - but nothing...
I have bought a few books on twin pregnancies, if it wasn't for those books I'd have had no advice whatsoever.
So thanks NHS for all your support during this stressful time for me, we appreciate being ignored and love the fact that we have no idea what is going on or when we will get to actually meet a doctor.
Perhaps I should take up drinking and smoking - I'd have an appointment tomorrow!
