    Default First GP visit.....what do I need to know

    Hi ladies. I'm 5w tomorrow and off to GP on Friday. It's my first bub and I'm wondering what I should ask the doctor or request.
    I'm going public and thinking of shared care.

    Thanks for any advice :-)

    They will usually do a urine test and give you a referral for a blood test.
    Possibly, even a referral for an ultrasound. (although my DR always gives me me U/S referral when I'm further along) depends where you go.
    He will probably go over eating habits with you and advise what not to eat etc.
    Folate and vitamins will be discussed too.
    Also, a referral to your chosen hospital if you have already decided on it.
