hi all i have just found out i am pregnant i think 5 weeks but i am on alot of medication for a spinal problem. When is best for me to go doctors this is my 3rd baby but i dont want to ring doctors and sound concerned when i dont need to be. It has been 4yrs since my last child and forgot when i went doctors
Go straight away (ie this week) - your medication may need to be altered depending on its safety in pregnancy, and it's most critical at the earlier stages so don't leave it.
I went at 4+2 and GP didn't bat an eyelid - just congratulated me, checked I wasn't on any medication I shouldn't be, advised folic acid etc. She referred me for the booking appointment then and there, then I sat back and waited for a couple of months for things to really start happening.
I was on a lot of medication for a spinal problem and mental health issues too. I just rang my doctor the day after I got a positive pregnancy test & he was more than happy to give me advice over the phone.
well iv been doctors and he is sending me for a scan and wants me 2 see the midwife before the 8 weeks but done a cb test today and its saying im more than 5 weeks so fingers cross everything will be ok thanks everybody for your help
