Congratulations!! I found out I was pregnant a couple of days before NY last year, it's very exciting isn't it!
What I would suggest is that you abstain from alcohol in the main, although a small glass of vino every now and again won't hurt, may even keep you sane! Steer clear of any unpasturised cheese such as Brie, reduce your Tuna intake (due to mercury), eat all meat well done, don't eat raw egg (although I did once or twice when baking cakes!), don't go fishing around in the cat litter tray and remember to take your vitamins and folic acid.
Oh and top tip - sleep whilst you can because you may well be hit with pregnancy insomnia which is a killer. Also if you're unlucky and get morning sickness don't abstain from eating, just eat little and often.
As for the doc, you should phone them and say you're pregnant and want to book an appointment for the midwife, I went to see my doc and it was a complete waste of time, she just referred me to the MW at about 8 weeks I think.
Another one here whos GP trusted my word. No one checked I was actually PG until they scanned me at 13 weeks.
Morning sickness "classic" is 6 weeks to 12 weeks. Mine was to the book. I was not sick in the morning though, just more and more nausea as the day went on then sick as I went to bed (I think it was brushing my teeth brought it on).
Take your vitamins and call the surgery for an appointment with the midwife. Mine came out to me for the first visit. Then I had to call the hospital for the 12 week scan.
TBH I was dissapointed they did not make more fuss! I remember feeling like I was the only person ever to get PG and that they should all be fawning all over me!
Just wait until LO arrives, I remember watching Sky news and thinking that I was a much better story to be covering
you can ring your GP, but if you're pretty sure when your last period was, and have a system likes our drs (where you can't book more than 4 weeks in advance) they'll probably tell you to ring back in a couple of week for an appointment,
