    Default First antenatal appointment

    Do you take your DP to the first antenatal appointment?

    He was working, I took my sister ^_^

    I would have taken him though (keeps them involved etc!)

    Mine came to as many as he was able to. I'm pretty sure the very first doc visit I went alone cause I was way too excited about being utd to wait until he was able to come with!

    Thanks for your replies. I also thought that it keeps them involved. I have a few medical problems so I guess I was hesitant to take him because I didn't want to scare him.

    I most definately did with my first pregnancy. But I dont think Ill bother with my next pregnancy.
    In fact Ill probably only get him to come to the appts I have with the scan results so after the 12 & 19 weeks and then maybe one toward the end.
    Or if I need to take DD I might ask him to come so I can actually have a conversation wtih the Dr and he can keep her enteretained.

    I've been to a couple of GP appointments and scans so far and my husband has attended all, and I think he intends on continuing with the others.
    It does help that he has a very supportive work.

    DH came to most appts with our DS. With this pregnancy he'll probably only come to scans and final appt/s at end.

    Dont have to but I did, first baby so wanted him there to know what's going on too and I think the midwives liked to meet him, they asked us questions about both our medical histories etc so was good to have him there.
