    First u/s is usually at 7ish weeks and that's ur dating scan. This is not necessary if you already know, or don't really care lol. After that is ur 12wk scan which us actually important and covers a lot of medical stuff.
    You'll get a blood test as well most likely, just to confirm what you already know. That was why I suggested just booking in with gp now so you can go straight to blood test and skip the pee test.

    I guess we should be ok. Just expecting that my cycle will be a bit screwed up this time so want to make the most of it

    They do u/s's when women have their AF so I'm sure they don't mind a bit of goop ;-)

    @CrumbleBee - what Tugs said. Go to your GP, get a blood test and get a clear answer.

    Hi Crumble - I agree, just book into your GP. He/she will send you for a bunch of blood tests. Not just to confirm you are pregnant but to check your immunity to rubella, your iron levels etc.

    I saw my GP at 4 weeks for bloods. Next week is my first OB appointment (at 10 weeks), she will do a quick dating scan and then the NT scan will follow at 12-13 week mark.

    What are your thoughts on bding the night before the ultrasound esp when they might have to do the internal one???
    I just dont want to miss an opportunity ;-)
    I am thinking it might not be a good idea but am torn with the wanting to ttc

    Book in for dr appt for initial bloods - pretty routine. You can then request a dating scan. It's good to get so you know your dates but also to put your mind at ease that yes there is a baby in there and it's in the right spot (obvs reducing the risk of a ruptured Fallopian tube if it's an ectopic as you'll pick it up early)
    Best done between 6-7w so you can see a blob and heartbeat.

    You can also ask your GP for your referral to your chosen OB/midwife program/hospital etc
    If your going private it's best to get in nice and early as OBs book up really fast. So ideally do your OB research BEFORE you fall pregnant so you can get a referral straight away and don't have to rush through trying to figure our who you want to see.
