    I am only 4 weeks pregnant and I visited my doctor last week when I found out (due to being on B12 injections I wanted to know everything would be ok to continue). He told me the midwife would be in touch regarding an appointment, but I was just wondering when I should expect this as I am due to go away in 4 weeks time for a fortnight.

    I am in the UK...

    Hi, I booked my first midwife appointment at the doctors so didn't need to wait to hear from her... if I were you I would wait a couple of weeks then chase it up as ideally you want it before you go away xx

    Hi there, I was told to expected to hear at around 8wks (which is about the same time as my last pregnancy) and then have scan around 12wk marker.
    I dont know how different pct work though.

    Hi there,
    Ive just had my first midwife appointment today (I'm between 9-10 weeks) You should be getting a letter in the post within the next 3-4 weeks I'd say. May be worth mentioning to the doctor maybe that you're going away, just in case you miss your appointment xxx

    Because of early bleeding etc and Bank Holiday dates, I didn't even see a doc until 8 weeks then I got a letter a week later from the midwife to see her a week after that - which was 10 weeks (although they put me at 11 weeks due to LMP as I have long cycles) then I got a letter just over a week after that for my scan which is tomorrow (exactly 2 weeks after I saw the midwife) which makes me 13 weeks according to them, but I think I'll be 12+2 either way it should be about the right time to have a scan and be alright timing for the NT check.

    Basically though at 4 weeks, nothing much will happen for a while. :hugs:

    Brill thanks ladies... That is great!

    I will see if I get anything over the next couple of weeks and if not chase it. I hope I can pick a time for my first appointment as I am so hectic with work at the moment I may need it to be later on in the day :)
