    Default First Doctors appointment after HPT

    Hi all

    I went to see my GP yesterday after getting two BFPs at home ( over the moon!!!)

    I am originally from the UK so not had much experience with my doctor/health service here and this is my first pregnancy so obviously I want everything to be done as it should!

    The visit was very brief really, he didn't even do another urine sample which I thought he would to confirm. He said two positive HPTs was enough. I am booked in for blood tests etc this morning and then going back on friday for the results and to chat more about care plans,hospitals etc. Then depending on what care I choose he will refer me and the hospital will get in touch regarding my first appointment.

    Does that sound about right?!

    Yep, normal.

    I went to see mine last week and she didn't need a urine sample as I had two FRER and a Digital she checked my blood pressure, did a quick exam of my stomach, asked 100 queations and sent me off to get a whole heap of bloods taken.

    She also printed off a whole lot of pregnancy info for me.

    Thanks I feel better about it now. Had my blood tests and going back to see GP on friday. I guess then he will give me an expected due date and refer me on to a hospital.
