    Well just got back from my first appointment with doctor... It wasn't what I was expecting. In fact I'm not quite sure what I was expecting - but certainly more than 5 minutes with her (half of which she was filling in a form)! She filled in a referral form which was going to be sent off to get me a midwife; asked if I'd had any symptoms, said yes that's normal... and that was about it.

    On a side note I had my first wave of nausea today whilst walking to work which took me be surprise. I sort of stopped, muttered ooh and smiled - then put my hand to my mouth and hoped fervently that I wasn't going to throw up. Thankfully I didn't, and it didn't last more than 10 minutes :)

    My first doctors appointment was pretty much like that, he just booked me in for my midwife appointment and we discussed my medication because i took sleeping meds, which i'm now off. Hopefully the midwife will be more helpful!! :)


    I wish my nausea was like that i have it 24/7!! lol

    i dont think there is much doctors can really do except refer to midwife and prescribe folic acid.
    did you get a prescription?
    and inform you about the free stuff you get like dental care!

    i have to see my doc regularly, but i dont think thats 'normal' for pregnancy.
