Okay so I've just found out that I'm pregnant and i'm so so so so excited about it! But i just have one question how quickly do I need to see my GP obviously I know it's important but I'm working 9-5 everyday of the week and am not registered at my local GP! Any advice xxx

theres no rush. As long as you look online and find out the food you can and cant eat, take your folic acid and vitamin d etc you should be okay. Normally see midwife for booking appt about 8 weeks, some surgeries want you to see the gp before, some places dont. x

Yeh you normally have some bloods taken around 8 weeks with the midwife.

Hi, congratulations! See the GP when you can just in case you start to feel unwell, at least they know you are pregnant. Also they will issue with a maternity card that gives you free prescriptions and dental treatment during your pregnancy (and for a year after). Dont know if it is the same everywhere but up here (merseyside) we get a hospital booking in appt around 8 weeks and they do a dating scan to confirm your dates and due date. Lots to look forward too. Good luck xx

Hooray for you. Massive congrats.

No rush to see G.P just try and make an appointment in the next week or so. Your booking appointment is normally at 8 weeks where you will have a scan arranged for 12 weeks, blood and urine taken and other relevent info.

Good luck I hope the morning sickness stays away. It's brutal!
