    HI LADIES

    JUST FOUND OUT IM PREGNANT! GOING TO THE DOCTORS ON THURSDAY! FEELING NERVOUS AND EXCITED AT THE SAME TIME, WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

    On my first visit he didn't even do a test, he just took the details of my last period and sent a letter to the hospital for a scan and a midwife appointment.

    My doctor examined me and listened to the heartbeat, and took lots of blood....But I was further along than 4 weeks. Good Luck.

    My Dr wrote/contacted the midwife in order for them to arrange an appointment with me. I had all the first checks done with her.

    I haven't yet been to the docs and I'm 6 weeks!

    Should I go now, or wait another couple of weeks? my mum says your supposed to go after you've missed two AF's- but then thats probably the advise of 30 years ago! lol

    I didnt go untill i was ten weeks. Dnt really think it matters wen u go, but it could be better if u go earlier so u can get ur folic acid etc.
