UK FTM's?

Hi :) I am a FTM currently 18+5 weeks, living in England, UK. Just wondered if there are any others in the UK to share experiences with on here? :)

Re: UK FTM's?

  • I'm living in the UK -- Norfolk to be exact.   Pregnant with #1 :-)

  • Awh lovely. You feeling ok so far?
  • Hello and congrats to you both! FTM, 32 weeks and change, living in Scotland :) It's definitely a different experience here than it sounds like it is in the states. (And I always forget to check this board).

    Hi, congrats to you :) I get a little lost in translation sometimes and also so thankful that we have an NHS here, pregnancy sounds like it can be quite expensive in the states

  • I'm just over the water in Belgium (have been here for 2 years, but am an American). DH and I talk all the time about how having a baby here is a very smart financial decision! I'm just at 18 weeks. :)

  • I'm also American, so not on the NHS.  Fortunately, my military health care coverage is completely free and very comprehensive, so I won't have to pay out-of-pocket for any care.

  • @Fizzy8 Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about NHS or MWs. I know it's slightly different in England but I'm happy to help if I can!

  • @Paturkey thanks very much for that :)

    @adunkin you due in December? I'm due 25 th dec! :)

    @Avion22 that's great that you're covered :) What happens if you don't have cover, do you not get any help during pregnancy?
  • @Fizzy8, in the US military all members are 100% covered for necessary care, and it's a system that's really similar to the NHS actually.  I'm here on US military orders, so I'm good-to-go.  Most Americans have to purchase health insurance through their company's policy, which can get expensive, especially for pregnancy.  So I'm pretty lucky :-)

    @Fizzy8 - My official EDD is Jan 2, but the last couple of ultrasounds (we get them at least every 4 weeks - sometimes more often since I'm high risk) baby was measuring more around Dec 27. I have a feeling baby will come before Christmas, but only time will tell!
