I don't think you get a choice in Scotland. You just see a community midwife and then when you're delivering its just in an NHS hospital with midwives but doctors are on hand. Unless you choose to have a home birth or go private.

Well, I am officially a POAS addict! Took another boots test today and strongest line yet, yay! I think it's just because I'm so worried about my hcg levels not rising, must learn to chill out!

48 hours until my Dr's appt, what kind of things should I be asking at this stage? I don't want to go in and just sit there feeling daft.

How you all feeling? I accidentally fell asleep for 2 hours yesterday afternoon so couldn't sleep lastnight, was so irritable with everything yesterday...mostly the sound of other people breathing was winding me up!! Haha

For most of us it's already been a week since we got our bfp's isn't it!? That went quick!!

I was thinking the same thing yesterday! The week has just flown by. My appointment is Wednesday. I'm going to ask stuff like how many days I should be exercising and I'm severely lactose intolerant so what are ways other than milk I can be sure I get enough calcium and vitamin d? I also want the no-no food list.

I am going to an ob/gyn. I have been going to him for my yearly for quite a few years and want to stay with him. He is so nice and will sit in the room and talk with you and answer all your questions.

I don't get a choice here (though I have heard of one midwife who does do home births in the city). Generally Spain over-medicalises ('scuse the invented word) birth, the caesarean rate has been steadily climbing to about 30%. The figures terrified me and the knowledge you have no choice, you're not allowed to move around, you get told off if you don't have an epidural... My first obgyn even wanted to induce me just cos he was going to India around my due date!

I finally found a clinic specialising in natural birth, and in the end just had the midwives with me as the obgyn was with someone else at the time. I've stayed with her as they were really good - just hope I can make it to the hospital in time - it is an hour away in traffic!

Sorry I havent posted ladies.. I lost the thread somehow but I found it again Here is my story for the last week just so everyone is on the same page...

I got my first bfp on February 12 and a second one on Valentines day, on february 15 I had a negative test so I went to the drs. where my test was alsi negative. I asked to draw blood and they did the same day ans my level was less than .05(not pregnant) on the feb. 17 my levels jumped to 6 and by feb 21 my levels had gotten to 60!! I am currently doubling hcg every 28 hours! Tge dr told me that my poaitive tests ciuld have been from a cervical cyst poping at the same time as my egg released cauaing a false positive that ultimatly helped my little jelly bean to stick. The dr has put me on prescription prenatals, and I have my first ob appointment in a week and a half(because my case to start off with was so strange and we dont know my conception date).

According to my lmp I am 8 weeks pregnant but according to when I believe I ovulated I am 5 weeks and 3 days and still my levels suggest 3-4 weeks... my Edd is anywhere from Oct. 24 to Nov. 8

My symptoms are tender bbs, I stopped biting my nails out of nowhere, light cramping/bloating, hungry sooner and full faster, exhausted by the end of the day, and mood swingy (I am such a sweetheart b I have little patience right now).

How are all of you ladies??

Wow sasha you have been through so much this last week! Fantastic news on the hcg levels rising. Tbh thats what I'm most worried about. I'm taking a test every 48 hours to make sure the test line is a)still there and b) getting darker....so far so good!

I am also definitely feeling hungrier but also feel queasy once I eat.

I'm also having random period pain like cramp now and then, only lasts for a few seconds but when it happens I just want to curl up. Weird.

So glad to see you again here Sasha

I've had the same 'period cramp' like symptoms and also worrying about hcg. Tests are now as dark as they can be. Was thinking earlier of asking nurse for blood test to check levels on Monday when I'm in but I have no real reason to check (other than paranoia) so I'm scared to ask incase they think I'm being crazy. xxx
