    Default What was the first thing you wanted to know when you found out you were pregnant?

    Hi hubbers, could you please help me out with some research I'm doing for new content for the site...

    When you first found out you were pregnant, aside from your due date, what did you want to know about first? What food to avoid? How much medical care would cost? If you should avoid medicines? Something else?

    TIAx

    What you should do after your at home pregnancy test.

    I was not sure when to make an appointment with the doctor, when you have to see a ob, when you book the hospital ect.

    After lots of IVF I wanted to know it was healthy and would be OK. I wanted to know how much exercise I could safely do, food I could eat and medicines to avoid.

    Didn't care about anything else. Just wanted to know the babies were ok.

    10 fingers and 10 toes. That sort of thing.

    after 4 years of TTC - the first question was whether or not I could believe the pregnancy test, and how often they give false positives

    other than that - when to make appointments, what symptoms I should expect etc

    If my Bub was ok and what tests were available in Aus to see if everything was OK. (I'm pretty sure this is when my anxiety started)
    Followed by - I've taken the test, it's positive, now what? Who do I see? What tests should I expect? What should I ask for that won't be routinely offered? How do I give this bubba the best chance at the healthiest start?

    Definitely how much medical care would cost.
    Then what foods to add, and avoid.
