I finally got my bfp yesterday after 20 months of trying
We have a 6 yo daughter. But Ive forgotten what to do next. Do I need to see GP and get referred to the midwife or can I just book an appointment with her? I will need to be seen by a consultant gynaeocologist as I have renal problens so I know the sooner the better but would it matter if I waited until the end of the week before making appointment? And do I need to take a wee sample? Help!
Good idea thanks. I am feeling woefully out of touch with what to do! And we are not telling anyone until 12 weeks so cant really ask friends/family for advice. From MN Calculator I am 7 weeks due Feb.
Well I rang the docs for an appointment and my gp is off for three weeks! Great! I explained to the receptionist and she has reccommended "dropping in" on the Midwife - but I do work for a living and cant just hang around on the off chance I will get 5 minutes with her! Bloody rubbish our docs are. Off to shops tonight for some folic acid and ginger tea!
Leave a message for the midwife to ring you and arrange the booking. Mine came out to me on a sunday morning. (just because thats when she was on duty and had a spare space, not because I demanded weekend or anything)
Ginger tea is great, and Carrs water biscuits, its the only thing that kept me sane at the beginning.
Hello I got my Folic acid and Im taking Vit B6 as I heard it helped sickness??
Think I will call the midwife and ask her to come when she is free rather than attending the drop in. I am going to see another doctor in the short term as I cannot wait 3 weeks to see my own GP. Did another test last night and still a strong BFP! I was worrying as my sickness trailed off sharply after lunchtime yesterday... your mind plays all sorts of tricks!
I didn't get many symptoms until around 11 weeks. I refused to allow myself to believe everything was fine until I had my scan at 12 weeks. I took a few tests over those first weeks just to reassure myself it was actually happening.
Theres a rumour that the sicker you feel, the higher your hcg level and the possibility of twins...
