    go to your drs, who will refer to your midwife,

    throw away tampons and opks, change to de-caff coffee/tea or limit your intake of caffeine, start taking folic acid if your not taking it already, other than that put your feet up relax chill out and breathe!! your gonna get reeli tired you may be having morning sickness, make the most of every opportunity to sleep rest and be genrally lazy!!! hahaha

    First off congratulations! :happydance:

    You need to call your Dr and either make an appointment with them or make an appointment with your midwife direct. Don't be too disappointed as, as they deal with this everyday, they wont be excited. They may say you're too early and you will have to wait a few weeks to see anyone but at least you'll be booked in.

    Booking in should be at about 10 weeks and your first scan should be at about 12 weeks but your Dr/Midwife will let you know what is most common in your area as they are all different.

    Good luck hun and well done for catching first month!! :happydance:

    I think seeing your doc when you find out is a good thing. They might have some thoughts about your previous medical history, or some good advice.

    My GP arranged the MW appointment for 10 weeks.

    Speak to your doc about the private scan, they might be able to help, or give you more info on anything that you might have questions about.

    Welcome to the club!! :)
