    had our bfp yesterday :) the test showed 1-2 weeks, period was over 4 weeks ago, on the 21st of march, which makes me 4 weeks and 5 days!! only thing is i phoned up the doctor to tell them i found out i was pregnant and need an appointment and they have booked me straight in for antenetal next week. I thought the doctor would want to see me himself first for a confirmed blood test? weird :S

    Congrats hunny!

    I'm from the UK and I have to wait about 6 weeks for a midwife appointment. I've been having cramps for the past few days as well, it's normal it's just your uterus growing

    I went to the doctors and all they did was refer me to a midwife, didn't even make me poas! Was a bit of a waste of time, would much rather they had just referred me to midwife, but I guess it's different in different parts of the country.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations honey. I went to the doctors and he was pretty useless and patronising (didnt even know i had been ttc for the last 18 months even thought I had been to him numerous times for tests grrrrr!) anyhow.... I am booked in for my first antenatal at 8 weeks.

    It says on NHS website that it is normal to have your first antenatal apt betweek 8 and 10 weeks.

    I get on and off cramps too, aparently they are a good sign as it means everything is growing and progressing as it should x

    Well they've booked me in for the antenetal class for monday, i will only be 5 weeks and 2 days then so i feel a bit silly! nevertheless its very exciting! I also think I have a cyst on my ovary which I had with first pregnancy few years ago so Im wondering if they will send me for early scan? maybe? Can't wait to see our little one :D:D:D:D

    Same here, i went to the docs friday (i'm 6 weeks) and they have referred me to a midwife although i have to ring them for an appointment when i am 8 weeks. It does vary, my cousin had a scan before she saw a midwife.
