    my 1st appt was 13 weeks and 2nd 20 weeks I think. Then after that, its every 4 weeks until week 28, then every 2nd week and then from week 36, every week until you have your baby.

    each hosp different but with busy waiting lists the times are a bit longer than they used to be between appts.

    We had a home birth on our last baby, so had appt every 4th week from week 16, every 2nd week from week 28 and every week from week 36, all at home and just had two scans at hosp apart from the home appts.

    HTH

    are you doing shared care with your GP? this is a good option because it means you can visit your GP every second visit and there is less waiting around at the hospital. Maybe you could look into that? You need to fill in a form at your GP office to do that and we did this on our first 2 babies and found it very good.

    As the appts are so far apart, if you do have any worries at all between appts. you can ring the hospital and speak to a midwife or go see your GP. all GP visits are free during pregnancy and for the first 6 weeks after so no worrying about hetfy GP charges!!

    HTH – enjoy your pregnancy!
