    Hi, you definately need to book into your hospital of choice as soon as possible! Do you know what area you will be living in here? Most women book into their hospital of choice very early

    Saray, generally you need a referral from your GP for booking in the hospital. But I believe you should just look into the hospital you want to give birth in and give them a call. Explain what's going on and they should be able to fix you up.
    Generally it's after the 12 week period that they will see you; as the chance for miscarrying is reduced. I would call up as soon as possible as although you won’t see them much, places within hospital’s do fill up and appointments can be quite hard to come by.
    As you won’t be arriving till June you will probably need to bring all your currently records over for when you have this appointment.
