My hubby and I have been TTC for a few months and I was (cautiously) excited to see a BFP on a digital POAS a week or so ago. I double checked with a FRER and also got a strong positive.
Being new to our area I pretty much chose a GP by Google. I made an appointment to see her last Thursday thinking she would do something to confirm the pregnancy as well as doing a bunch of other tests . Well, I was quite disappointed! She seemed pretty disinterested and said "most pregnancies take care of themselves". I said I was concerned because of my age (38), so she wrote me a referral for an US which she said would be done at 9 weeks. In addition she ordered a range of blood tests which was fine. I assumed one of these would be the hormone levels as well as iron, folate etc.
Went back today for my results. All were fine except she didn't do anything to confirm my pregnancy. I asked her why and she said there's no need if I did a home test. she also didn't do any iron etc as she said its not in the standard pregnancy screen. Lastly, she didn't even check my blood pressure during either consult!
I found out from the US place that my US is at 12 weeks and the doctor did write me a referral for the antenatal clinic at my hospital.
As this is my first pregnancy I'm hoping someone may be able to provide some advice on what I do next (if anything). Do I contact the antenatal clinic now? And am I stuck with this GP for my whole pregnancy? I'm going through the public system as my health cover waiting period is not up yet for obstetrics.
BTW, I did another digital test this afternoon and it read 3+ so I'm about right for my last menstrual cycle (12th May).
Sorry for the long post! And advice appreciated!
