When you got your BFP when did you ring your doctor? With dd it was the doc how told me to do a test so it was kinda out my hands but this time i found out very early and unsure when i should ring them?
Wow-so most people did it fairly late (well not late late iyswim) then, I think i was about 9wks with dd. Am only 5.5 weeks now but read 'ring as soon as you know' but felt it was very early-what do you think?
I went at about 5.5 weeks. I don't think it matters if you go early, you'll get a chance to arrange a convenient midwife appointment and get your scan booked in early.
Having said that apparently I didn't need to see the GP at all (he was quite surprised & said 'ooh it makes a change from seeing sick people!') I was supposed to ring the midwife directly, how I was supposed to know that I've no idea!
I chickened out today-I'm going to take another test in the morning just to be very sure.....the test I took a week ago was one of the cb digital ones with conception indicator so my theory is that it said 1-2weeks last week (3-4 in doc terms) so should say 2-3 (4-5)tomorrow (touch wood) and then I'll ring on mon I'm so paranoid something will go wrong Please let everyting be ok!!!
I would go sooner rather than later...I went about 5 weeks with DC2 and am glad I did, as blood tests picked up hypothryroidism which I didn't know I had. (Hypothryoidism isn't routinely tested for in the UK, AFAIK, but I'm in Aust at the moment)
Congrats! I got my BFP on Monday (and again on Tuesday, just in case) and saw my GP yesterday. She was really pleased, as we'd just started on fertility investigations, and was happy to give me some general nutrition advice, etc. Anyway, I'm also just over 5 weeks and GP just told me to talk to the receptionist about contacting the mid-wife - no suggestion that I was coming in too early.
I too am terrified about something going wrong, and would rather be in the system sooner than later.
This is my first time, so I have no idea about what's what - whether anything I'm feeling is normal.
