Morning Ladies, I'm looking for sone advice really, I came off bc in October and haven't had a visit from Af since. As suffering with what I thought could be symptoms for the last 10 days or so I took a cheap test on weds to receive bfp. This was a complete surprise! My question, what on Earth do I do now? Advice very welcome
Congrats! You should pop down to your GP who will give you more info, maybe a flu jab (if you want one). Assuming you want this pregnancy, you'll eventually be given a booking appointment with your midwife, then come scans and lots and lots of blood and urine tests - such fun!
In the meantime, start taking folic acid, stay off the booze, reduce caffeine, don't eat stinky runny cheese or underdone eggs, all that malarkey.
Hello Ladies, Thanks for the speedy replies! I stopped taking cerazette in October, I haven't had a period for years but take your advice on board. Will call for a gp appointment later if I get the chance (Christmas work do today). Going to have to come up with a good excuse not to drink over the next couple of weeks now! Oh, I haven't told Dh yet, do you think leaving it to Christmas day is a good idea?
When you phone your GP they might give you an appointment with a MW straight away -depends on your area. As you don't know how far along you might be I imagine they'll take it from when you came off bc (so potentially 10 weeks depending when you came off it).
Oh and if you aren't already, start on folic acid or a pregnancy multi-vitamin (not one with Vit A!).
I haven't made it to either the chemist or call the doctor today! Can make a chemist visit tomorrow though. I have bought a little pair of baby shoes which I am going to wrap up to give to dh on Christmas day if I can make it that far without telling him! Will be calling the drs monday first thing, how soon do you think I would be seen?
