So we got our first BFP last week and after a few days of satisfying my POAS addiction, I know I'm not imaging lines anymore. Based on my ovaluation date, I am 4 +5 weeks, but I'm lost as to where to from here.
I am generally a healthy person so I don't have a GP that I regularly see (well not since I was a teenager). If I get sick, I just go to the local medical centre and see the first available doctor.
I have read a lot of different posts talking about blood tests to confirm pregnancy, check HCG levels and and having US at 6-8weeks, dating scans etc
I had planned to go up to the local medical centre on Monday or Tuesday and ask for a blood test to confirm the pregnancy, but no idea if I should be asking for anything else or scheduling more appointments with them??
I have had started looking at OBs in my area but based on the posts I have been reading, they probably wouldn't make an appointment before 8 weeks.
I know this may seem like a stupid question, but would really appreciate if someone could help point me in the right direction. Thanks

Congrats The doctors at the medical centre should be able to let you know how it all works
Personally I had my blood test and first ultra sound referrals from the first doctor at the medical centre, then when I went back for my results I got a referral to the high risk hospital in our region (my last Bubs birth went a bit pear shaped and this time I also have a hernia).
Last pregnancy I had a regular gp who scheduled everything in and let me know each step as we went (I'd go back for tests and he'd book in the next lot of tests or tell me to come back in a month). He left town just before I got my second BFP so I'm sticking with the hospital this time
Good luck with it all

Some obs can be very popular. Book in now then see local med centre for bloods and ask for a referral to ob. Obs office will tell you if you need one.
