Just found out I'm pregnant - when to see a doctor


Hi all,
Just looking for a bit of advice really, I found out this morning that I'm pregnant (5 weeks I think) and I'm not sure when to go to the doctors to tell them. Do I phone up and tell the receptionist I'm pregnant and ask what the procedure is? Or should I just make an appointment asap? I've heard some doctors don't seem interested unless you're a bit further along than I am which is making me worry about calling them!
What did you all do?
PS- I'm still in shock, I can't actually believe I'm typing this!!!

Congratulations!

I'm 5 +1 and haven't seen a doctor, am not planning on it either. When I was pg with DS I went to the doctor straight away and was practically told off for bothering to see him. All he said was to wait til I was 8 weeks and see the midwife.

I'm at a new surgery now so am going to call up next week to see how I make my booking in appt with the midwife.

Depends where you are though hun, you might get a better reception from your doctor - maybe it was just mine that was a muppet!!

That's what I'm concerned about. But I have no idea how to contact a midwife so I guess I'll have to see a doctor to find out!I've made an appointment for 2 weeks time as I'm off work that day, I'll be 7 weeks then.
Thanks for your responses and congratulations to you too!!!

hey, congrats to all this is my first pregnancy (well actually i had a miscarriage at 2 months last year) and i'm thinking i'm around 7 weeks now.. well i dont really know for sure cause the doc said i'm around 6 weeks but the scan showed as 7w 0d on the 2nd of March.. that was my first consultation after my BFP. anyway the doc said she couldn't see much in the scan and has asked me to come back again for another scan on the 12th. so i guess its better to wait till 8 weeks for ur consulation but for those of us who can't help being paranoid on whether everything is ok with the pregnancy head to ur doc right away

Congrats! I phoned them up and said I'd found out I was pregnant and wondered what the next step was. They said I had to make an appointment with doctor. The doctor didn't do any tests or anything, just said a midwife would phone me. I've no idea when that will happen though.
