Ok - we are all pregnant - so what happens next - i have just been told and am only 5 weeks - who do you see first and when can you have your first scan?
Oct 30, 2008 12:55PM
Ok heres what ive had so far - i think all areas are different:-
6 weeks - confirmed with doc
8 weeks - app with nurse and doc to fill in forms for midwife and check all ok and confirm EDD
10 weeks - 1st app with midwife and blood tests for HIV, iron levels etc
12 weeks - 1st scan and app with scan midwife - blood tests for downs syndrome (results were back within a week)
16 weeks - app with midwife - heard heartbeat (altho not all mw's do this at this stage)
21 weeks - 2nd and final scan - app with midwife - heard heartbeat again
Next app at 25/26 weeks and then monthly until about 30 weeks or thereafter where they become fortnightly.
Good luck with everything!!!

m & K - my boobs - ow ow ow ow - excessive tiredness - feeling slightly sicky after meal but nothing else. But the boobs!!!!!!!!

I have resorted to wearing my sports bra, and my boobs do feel better,more supported, i think mine have grown already,prob just my imagination but if they have they will be MASSIVE HOOTERS in no time
So sorry u feel sicky after eating, i drink peppermint tea after my meals, it really helps, it is an aquired taste but i do now really enjoy it and so far iv had nothing like sicky feelings just a really strange watering mouth all the time,which is weird coz before i found out i was preg, my mouth was really dry all the time.
i think we have alot to learn yet haha !

M&K and Summer76 - try getting a big maternity or underwired bra to wear at night. My doc advised this at 8 weeks and ive worn it eversince. It helped me sleep better cos everytime i turned over i was in agony!! Doc also said its better if you are bigger busted like me as it can stop them sagging so much after the birth.
