    Hiya! Congrats! Normally the doc doesn't tend to do alot, mine just asked a few questions and gave a bit of general advice. They then refer you to a midwife who will book you in around 8 weeks and take the bloods and do paperwork then. Hope this helps :)

    Mine did nothing other than tell me the basics on healthy eating, taking folic acid, avoiding heavy exercise etc - didn't even do a pregnancy test!

    They will refer you to a midwife, who you will see at about 8-10 weeks, first scan at about 12 weeks.

    I've written a longer account of the appointment in here https://www.babyandbump.com/pregnan...r-little-christmas-cakes-late-dec-babies.html if you're interested.

    Welcome to the 1st tri x
