  • Hiya, you should make a doc tors appointment as soon as possible so that they can get you started with a free prescription for folic acid. Becuase you work in a job that can be quite dangerous, it might be best to tell your boss fairly soon. Ask it to be kept confidential until you feel comfortable telling everyone else or when you hit the 12 week mark. Don't be scared because people look out for you and we are all here to help. Do you have any other qu's? xxxx


  • Hi Beki
    it's all so overwhelming at first isn't it.
    After the pregnancy test, the first thing I did was contact my docs and that got the ball rolling with getting me into the system for a dating scan.
    Work don't need to know for a long while yet, 15 weeks before baby due, but my husband joined the police last year and I know the maternity benefit is very good. Have you completed your training yet?

  • Hi beki

    Congrats!!!! I would also say to go to docs as soon as. They should refer you and make arrangements for a MW. It all takes time. I only saw my MW at 16 weeks and I'm supposed to see her at 12 weeks for the first time.

    So everything takes time. So try and do things way ahead. So you don't need to stress in the long run. I will add you to my msn and hope to catch you on there sometime.




  • Congrats hun! My advice is relax through it all and let your body do the work! This is my second pregnancy! You need to make an appointment with your midwife for around 8-12 weeks then she will send off a scan appointment for you. From there she will make further appointments for you so all the hard work is done by her! Enjoy the experience and hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!
