    Just got my bfp this morning and already million questions in my head!

    When do I go see doc/midwife?
    Should I tell anyone?
    Who / when did everyone else tell?

    Congrats on ur BFP, how far gone r u (from your last LMP)? I went to the drs straight away to fill out a couple of forms and be refered to the midwife and basically start the ball rolling. I'm out of area for my drs though so they have to send the referral to the local midwife office who have to send it to the community midwife so they can come out to me at home for my booking in appointment (at approx 8weeks LMP) due to previous complications, we told parents and my sister after my early scan.

    FX for a H*H pregnancy for you

    if you do go for a private scan go when your approx 8weeks hun.
    i've had three, 12th Jan, 26th Jan and 30th Jan.
    The reason for my excessive scans lol is the first one they saw what they thought was a water bubble in my womb which could have indicated an ectopic pregnancy (6w+2 from LMP) so had to go back two weeks later to check (longest two weeks EVER!) and baby measured as 6w+5 (at 8w+2 from LMP) the following day had a bleed so had to go for a third scan baby measure 8w+2 (at 8w+6 from LMP) big fat growth spurt of 11days in 4 days lol :)

    Awww that must have been reassuring. I'm sure when babies so small its hard for them to measure accurately xx

    yeah definately, and even though it was just over 3 weeks ago it seems like so long ago that we saw our baby. the best reasurance is that if you have an early scan at 6 weeks and you see the heartbeat there is only a 5% chance of miscarriage, if you see it at 8 there is only a 2% chance, :)

    Congratulations! Welcome to tri1, we'll be due around the same time :)
    I went to the doctor as soon as I could just to get it all on my records and get things going. And we told both sets of parents last Wednesday as we had to tell mine because lying every week at dinner about why I'm not having a glass of wine felt really wrong, I can only have so many headaches! But not going to to everyone else until the usual 12 week mark.
