    I am 4 weeks today... is it too early to go book my booking in appt with the Midwife? I know the don't see you until 8/9 weeks which isn't a problem, I thought get it booked now as I can imagine it books up quite quickly... suggestions???

    I would book your appointment now , if you are working you could book the time off in advance.

    I found out at 6 weeks and booked my appointment the same day, my booking in app weren’t until I was 10 weeks though.

    Congrats on your pregnancy : )

    See when I saw a dr they weighed me, booked me into the hospital and took a urine sample maybe its best to inform your doctor even if its by phone.

    Yeah in in the uk. Yeah Hess all that then he info went to the midwife to make booking in faster/ he also checked my blood pressure.

    After that he sent me to see the midwife t an information session where I got my notes and things and made me booking appointment. They also gave me numbers to ring and info about a drop in session in case I'm worried about anything

    I told work about my pregnancy but I had to disclose it in order for them to make working safe for me so I get paid for my appointments :)
