    Congrats :) welcome to tri 1. Most places let you make apt direct with midwife otherwise your GP will probably give you info such as 'take folic acid' and let you know what you should/shouldn't eat and refer you to a midwife. Good luck x

    My GP give me a blood test form so I could go and get my blood tests done and he also contacted the hospital to get my 12 week scan booked in. He also contacted midwife on my behalf to get them to arrange an appointment with me. They tell you that you should be taking pregnancy vitamins especially folic acid. Good luck. xxx

    Hi Karate Kid! I'm feeling great so far. Had some cramps/twinges, got sore bb's and feel a bit sick when i get hungry but thats bout it so far. How are you feeling?

    I just got back from the docs- she jus asked if i was taking folic acid etc and said the midwives will be in touch with me at 8 weeks. Gotta book in for a flu jab too. Seems like aaaaaaages till i will get a scan! Cant wait to see bean!

    Very boring and disapointed I found the first appointment, told to take folic acid, given a booklet which is your pregnancy notes, weight and height taken and blood pressure. Was so bursting with excitement thinking they might feel belly but not lol.

    congratulations!!!! :dance:

    i found my first appointment quite exciting, and also scary!

    the midwife was asking me where i wanted to give birth and how i want to feed!!!
    i was 5 weeks!!!! :rolleyes: lol

    (i dont think you are usually seen that early though)
