16 week appointment in the Uk

Loulou B

Had my 16 week appointment today - my BMI was 32.5 at my first appointment. She didn’t weigh me today or ask me about my weight or anything like that. I asked her that I had read you couldn’t have your baby in a midwife led unit of your BMI was over 35 - she said that was right but it was your BMI at the first appointment (when you are 9 weeks). Or not your BMI during your pregnancy.

Hopefully a bit of reassurance for UK mums.
