Fantastic news! Book to see your GP asap, they will explain what happens next. Good to have some idea if you want to go private or public andask friends for recommendations for consultants. As for foods to avoid, these are the main ones: Alcohol Pate (anything with liver) Shellfish Unpasturised dairy products Soft cheeses Anything with raw egg (ie homemade mayo, although shop bought is fine) Undercooked meat Tea, coffee, cola Raw fish I'm sure there are others, but they are just the main ones...

Congradulations boneym! That is fastastic news! As Ducky said, get your appointment with your GP, and they will explain alot to you. After my visit to my GP, I decided to go private and then decided on one particular consultant and rang them to ask for an appointment. I'll be having my first scan at 12 weeks. There are a few posts on here and on magicmum that go through private versus public which might help you out a bit. Congrads again and don't worry, your GP will be able to answer all your questions.

Congrats - that's great news!! As regards gp and hospital, go to your gp asap. It would help if you had an idea of whether you want to go private or public. Private consultants tend to book up really quickly, so the sooner you can book him/her the better. Also, if seeing a consultant only (no GP visits), you could just contact the hospital yourself and book in, no need to see GP. You could have your first scan at any stage. I booked in at around 5 weeks, and was given 1st appt at 9 weeks. Was told it would depend on the day how busy it was, whether I would get a scan or not. And if I didn't get one, it would be just the 20 week scan. Luckily, I was given a scan at 1st visit, and then just the 20 week after that. There are different waiting times in different areas so you'd need to find out from your hospital. Best of luck ;)
