So now I know I'm pregnant and my partner knows, what do I do next?!
First time mum, no horrible comments please, never had to do this😐

How far along do you think you are?

Minniemouse94 Sun 02-Aug-15 17:22:47

Anywhere between 3-5 weeks, I'm guessing

Ok, well there's no rush yet then. Assuming you want to proceed, call your doctor and they should organise a booking in appointment with the midwife. This won't be for maybe another few weeks yet. Then you'll get a date for for first 12 week (or thereabouts) scan.

Im just worried as I was in the middle of being tested for polysystic ovaries and I'm so worried

Minniemouse94 Sun 02-Aug-15 17:27:56

Thank you by the way :-)

Ok, well let your doctor/midwife know your worries. They'll sort everything out for you. Try not to worry and enjoy!

Congratulations. Just have a quick chat to your Dr about your worries, but as far as I know while PCOS affects fertility it won't affect the pregnancy.

Im guessing from your UN that you're quite young? I was 19 when I had my DD, felt pretty much the same as you!

Trawling Internet forums and googling to work out the practicalities helped me a lot. A booking in appointment with the midwife is the first place to start medically. It might also help to sit down and work out finances, accommodation etc. (apologies if this isn't relevant to you smile)

And once you've told the wider world (possibly after your 12 week scan) it will start to feel a lot more real!

In addition to the above start taking folic acid, they sell it really cheaply in supermarkets. And a vitamin which is safe for pregnancy (doesn't have vitamin A in it).
