    3 pregnancy tests later and all gave me a :bfp:

    I am guessing i am somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks (first midwife appointment tomorrow) and over the moon. We have been trying for 2.5 years, have been for all sorts of tests, and in the end, we conceived naturally 2 weeks before fertility treatment was about to start :dance:.

    So far, pregnancy seems to suit me, the first few weeks i had bad cramps, but now i feel great, with only occasional nausea and rarely sickness. Though im tired all the time!

    Can anyone tell me what to expect at my first midwife appointment please :)

    They just do height weight bmi blood test they ask about family history, are you or dad smokers etc
    They tell you about what scans and tests you do
    Go through how likely itd have downs syndrome
    That kinda thing
    You'll get info on eating healthy, folic acid and vitamin D etc
    Just give you advice ,tell you when stuff is happening and answer any questions :)

    Congratulations on your long awaited BFP. Fx the rest of your pregnancy is as easy and symptoms free as the first few weeks.
