    Default Now where?

    Hi. So today I got a bfp. First baby and I'm completely freaking out! Can anyone advise me on what to do next and some tips on how to calm my nerves enough that I'm not going to want to tell the first person I see!! I think I'm roughly 4 weeks. Thanks!

    First of all congratulations! Secondly call your gp and make an appointment. They can confirm it and start the ball rolling in regards to scans and hospital referrals etc.

    Congratulations!
    I'd go and chat to your GP in the first instance. They can organise referrals for ultrasound and blood test - if you want to do the NT test (gives an indication of Down syndrome). You can also discuss with the GP any other tests you might want to have, other than standard monitoring.
    Do some reading about diet during pregnancy.
    Have you been trying to conceive? And have you been taking pregnancy vitamins? If not, maybe start taking some elevit or one of the other pregnancy vitamins. My Ob suggested additional folic acid so I was taking an extra tablet of that as well as vitamin d since my blood test showed a deficiency.
    If you have private health give some thought to who you want to care for you during pregnancy - will you go with a private obstetrician? Or maybe midwife care or something else.
    Wishing you all the best for a healthy pregnancy and healthy mum and bub.

    Thank you TheGooch! I'll take that all on board. I wasn't trying to conceive but have got some ifolic which the OBS at work say Is the best (I'm a nurse).
    Thank you for your well wishes, it's so much to take on board
