    In my NHS Trust they normally see people (with no previous problems) at around 10 weeks for 1st appointment with the midwife. It may vary a bit from region to region though so not sure that's helpful but my first appointment was at 10+1 I think.

    Yeah I know how you feel this is our first too so I'm feeling all impatient about things and just want to have that first meeting! I think it will feel a lot more real then, at the moment we're still shocked & jumping up & down with excitement! (well, I'm trying not jumping too much haha).
    Good luck with the docs babe! Xx

    The MW will still only go off what you tell her for the dates and you can find that out yourself online. They'll ask you the date of your last period and how many days your cycle is then take your blood pressure, give you some leaflets, fill in a form for free presciptions then take some bloods and answer any questions you have. She also rang Linacre Centre in town and booked my scan there and then but it was for about 2-3 weeks later.

    Do the midwifes write to you and tell you when they will see you??

    My doctor confirmed my pregnancy nearly two weeks ago, and said she'd forward all the details to my local hospital and I should just wait to hear from them, is that right??

    jetters - when I went to see the doctor he told me to make an appointment on the way out to see the midwife but it was about 4 weeks after the doctors appointment when MW had any free appointments
