"Questions about my recent pregnancy"

About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary / Maternity

(as the patient),

I actually only found out when I was 11 wks, my first scan went fine however the second not so much they told me they couldn't see his heart chambers due to antuation I think it's called none of this was explained so I had to come home and Google it,

they said come back at 23 wks which I did they then found everything but my fluids was raised and I've had fortnightly scans since my liquor is on the 95th mark not sure if that's really high slightly high as it's not fully been explained just the implications high fluids can have

im now 33+1 and my nxt scan is nxt wk where I will ask more questions as I'm now struggling to catch my breath and my SPD is at an all time high, my one other thing is I've struggled to breast feed in my last pregnancies and was totally unaware that they did anti natal breastfeeding classes

thankfully a lively group I'm with which is private gave me some leads on however I rang them nearly 2 wks ago and still haven't had a reply thanx for reading sorry I don't normally complain this much because other than the above the midwives have been top drawer and fab
