    I booked in the day I found out I was pregnant. I'm going to the birth centre here and they have very limited places every month so recommend you get in early! My first actual appointment wasn't until 13 weeks though.

    Mine is in week 10, but I'm high risk so that may influence when they booked me.

    I rang up at 6 weeks pregnant, they booked me in to see the midwife at 12 weeks (all public). I don't see them again until 22 weeks.

    The only problem is the nuchal scan at ~12 weeks. You need a referral either from your midwife or GP to get the scan done.

    I am also trying to get into our birthing center at my local hospital. Spots are so limited too, but I have been told that they can't give me a yes or no answer until after my 20 week scan as they have to ensure that I am still considered a low risk birth.

    Ah, I really not fussed either way

    Good luck

    Apart from my early pregnancy unit appts. My GP sent my referral thru when I was 4 weeks, I have my first midwife appt at 8weeks and then a antenatal appt at 14weeks. Apparently our birthing centre doesnt accept referrals til after 14 weeks... but I dont think thats true! lol!

    With DS1 I booked in early to avoid being turned away. My first appt was at about 28wks. Then another at 32wks, then weekly from 33wks (high risk due to prem labour which was stopped)

    With DS2 I was booked in from 15wks, i went fortnightly as i had Hyperemesis and they classed me as high risk so wanted to check on me regularly.

    I think its normal to book in asap but they only see you after your 20wk scan.

    I go publically, so my first booking in ante natal appointment has been at 20 weeks. Prior to that I got my first trimester bloods, dating scan etc via my GP.
