    Is it with a midwife? If so it'll just be your booking in appointment. She'll probably go through a booklet with you just asking general questions about the baby, your health, the father of the child etc. Nothing to worry about :)

    When I went to my docs the first time I was asked about my dates and what hospital I want to go to. She gave me a magazine and said about the most important bits to read I.e. diet. And she referred me to my midwife which I got a letter through the door. She also explained where my midwife was based. :)

    I didn't even see a doctor, I just rang my GP surgery and said I was pregnant so needed to book in with midwife, so the receptionist booked me in with her straight away.

    I doubt the doctor will do much with you today, probably just say 'OK I will refer you to Midwife'.
    Nothing to worry about :D

    Ooo yeah it is! I remember ringing up for mine and she didn't book me in til I was about 8-9 weeks. I said to her 'Are you sure I'm meant to see her that far on and not before?' and she said yeah.

    Hope it goes ok :D
