Hi all I got BFP today after 3 months trying after coming off of the pill. Now not sure how to act or what I should change so going down the route of as long as I feel ok all is ok! Did ring GP and book appointment but it's not til next Thurs so I guess that I'll have to wait and find out more then.
Hi. Didn't want to leave you unanswered. First of all congratulations Just enjoy the news for a few days. IME the doc won't do much as your care will be mid-wife led. You should be given a booking in appointment and will get a scan about 12 weeks. In the meantime invest in a good pregnancy book and keep taking the folic acid. I wish you a quick and healthy pregnancy.
I know how you feel - I got a bfp a week ago, have seen the doctor - very briefly, she referred me to the midwife...and since then, nada! It feels like a bit of an anti-climax after last week... so far, all I've felt is tired (no huge change there then) and have sore boobs. I'm wondering if I'm really pregnant and it's too soon to talk about it loads and NOTHING is going to happen now until I get a letter from the hospital asking me to come for the 12 week scan. It's enough to make me want to crack open a bottle of wine and pretend I haven't taken the bloody test .
Congratulations though, it is really exciting isn't it?
yeah it really is! I can't say that I feel any different really struggling a bit with food but then I guess that is normal! unrequited I really hope that we can continue to share info throughout these first nerve racking and exciting days!!!
No, I haven't but my sister, who is coincidentally ALSO pregnant, has had quite a lot - she was spotting continually for about 2 weeks I think, then had a bit of bright red blood on Sunday night which frightened her, and since then nothing, except she is now throwing up like a good'un. Poor thing. She's 7 weeks now. How many weeks are you?
The most annoying thing is that the NHS isn't really much interested in you until 12 weeks. So get a couple of books and read as much as you can!
Don't read depressing or worrying or panicking threads about various symptoms that people might have in the first 12 weeks on this website as that will just start you panicking yourself and worrying that you will get the same symptoms. I found those sort of threads really demoralising (and most of them should be seeing their doctor or early pregnancy unit at the local hospital to get proper advice, not posting stuff on here sending everyone else into a panic!).
If everything feels OK just go with the flo, but start taking the folic acid if you haven't already and avoid doing the usual things, such as food, you're supposed to avoid.
