    Default I forgot....

    How little you get scans and see your doctors or antenatal clinic in a pregnancy that I'm actually finding it harder then I thought especially knowing its twins i feel like they just don't care anymore is it normal to wait from 12 weeks to roughly 16 before you get into your first clinic appointment really wanting to get a Doppler so I know all is well cuz as much as I've had another kid before I feel more worried now and as if I'm not getting enough care :-(

    Perfectly normal.

    You'll find with twins that you will have more than the standard amount of scans, once you pass the 20 week mark. (I guess without sounding harsh, they want to make sure it's a fully viable pregnancy before directing some resources towards it?)

    Don't feel neglected- if you REALLY worried something is wrong, see your GP or even go to your ED ( I did early on with bleeding- I sure got some attention then- straight to the top of the triage list... pity it wasn't good attention!)

    I'm going private and have a high risk pregnancy and need lots and lots of scans but they don't start doing them till 20 weeks cos as horrible as it sounds there isn't much they can do to save a baby before then so no point having lots of appointments and scans till they can auctually do something bout a problem they find. This is what I've been told by a few docs. If your are worried at all just book a gp appointment they will have a Doppler there, or go to ED.
    Congrats on your pregnancy and good luck with everything

    I am also going private, due to being high risk, being an old bag .

    And its an IVF bub so first scan was at 6 weeks, option of another at 8 weeks (I've pushed it to 9 weeks), 12 week scan followed by fortnightly scans from 14 weeks until 34 weeks due to a stillborn at 21 weeks last time.

    Will be seeing the Obs monthly to start with, already have had first appointment.

    Hope you feel more settled soon. Maybe hire a Doppler to put your mind at rest...good luck.
