Hi hun, congrats!
Re the docs, different ones work different ways, some will want to re-test, some won't, you'll more than likely get some tips and advice, like take folic acid etc. You should be given a number to call for the mw to book in for your first appointment.
Enjoy the next 9 months!

Hi Ladies thanks very much!
Congratulations wanna bump!!
Do they take your due date as 9 months from date of your last period? If so it will be April!!

Another lttc graduate- yay!! Congratulations you must be over the moon!!
When I went to the Doctors I just got given a list of do's and dont's in pregnancy, was asked if I was taking folic acid and then sent me away to make an appointment with the midwife at approx 10 weeks.
I was in there for like 2 mins!! Bit of an anti-climax really, perhaps I was expecting a congrats banner, a few party poppers and a cake lol. When you're a lttc graduate especially I think you expect it to be as big a deal to everyone else as it is to you lol- it's really not!!
Home tests are so good nowadays I don't think many docs still actually confirm your pregnancy.
It makes the 12 week scan so special though as you're like, wow, it's real- not my imagination!!
They will give you a rough due date at midwife appointment (or on phone when they make it for you) based on the first day of your last period and on a 28 day cycle. Even if you know yours are longer or shorther than that. At the dating scan (12 weeks) they'll give you a more accurate one based on baby's size and the may move your date forward or back. I was moved forward by a week as I thought I would (short cycles).
Good luck and enjoy!!

Life after miscarriage
Just wondering how people coped after having their miscarriage. Did you take anytime off work? If so how long? I've been back in work for 4 weeks but wondering if I came back too soon? I work in a pre-school so surrounded by children. One of the Mums is pregnant and due the same time I was which really upset me. Feel like…
