    They don't worry much before 8 weeks tbh as there is nothing for them to really do. Just eat a healthy diet, start taking folic acid if you've not already and see how it goes :) Congrats :)

    I'd give your GP a call or go see him/her in the next few weeks then make an appointment with the MW from somewhere after 8 weeks. She'll just take history etc to start with, nothing exciting and get all the paperwork sorted.

    I haven't been to the doctor's yet just cos I know that not much will be done at an early stage. So I'm making an appointment this week to go the following week when I'll be 7 weeks pregnant. I think I went at 7 weeks last time as well, sure I remember him saying 7+4 when I went last time.

    I went to my docs at 6 weeks - she felt my tummy to see if I was 6 weeks gone rather than 6 months! All my antenatal care was midwife led so I didn't see a doctor since that 1st appointment.
