    Congratulations! Wishing you a happy n healthy 9 months. Once il you've been docs they'll prob let you know what to do to get a booking in appt with your midwife and book your first scan for the 12 week mark.

    Now just chill out n enjoy being pregnant x

    Just remember to avoid certain foods like blue cheese and undercooked eggs. There are lists all over the Internet! Apart from that just enjoy it. Congratulations!!

    Congratulations again honey ... How far gone are you?
    I'll be ringing the doctors too ... do I need to actually see the gp or just say I'm pregnant and see what they say?

    You need to see gp

    Just sit down and say what I did- 'hi, I'm 4+3 pregnant, planned and taking folic acid, I'm not smoking or drinking and want to be referred to midwife'

    Job done was In and out in 4 minutes lol

    Congrats :)

    I didn't need to see my gp as the receptionist handled the referral to midwife led care so maybe worthwhile mentioning that you've tested pregnant when you phone up for an appointment as they may just ask you to pop in for all the information and blank medical notes you need to pick up/ to fill out a referral form.

    I'm only 4 weeks today and would love to be bump buddies! :)
    And a fellow camper too ... hope you have a fab weekend. Looks like you got the weather for it.

    Good luck for getting an appointment later.

    I feel the same ... I can't stop smiling and I'm so excited for the future.

    Congratulations!!!

    Yep, same as everyone else said. Ring GP and tell them you're pregnant and, unless you want to see your doctor, you can probably book in with midwife.

    How exciting! Have a great weekend camping. xxx
