Pregnancy Week 36

Pregnancy Week 36

Time to see your midwife

You are likely to have a midwife appointment this week.  Your appointments should become more frequent now as it is important that your blood pressure and urine are checked on a regular basis to ensure you are not developing pre-eclampsia.

You may be asked if you have started to consider your birth plan.  This is an opportunity to write down things that are important to you during labour such as your preferred pain relief options and your plans for how you are going to feed your baby.

Assuming everything is fine at this appointment you are likely to be given another date to see the midwife again in a couple of weeks time.  You are so nearly there!
