wait for a few days because your hormone levels double every 48 hours and then go to the doctor - the doctor will check urine , bp etc and refer you to the hospital. then about 12 weeks hospital will call you for check up and maybe a scan :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll congrats - we will see you here more often then

C :o)ll O :o)ll N :o)ll G :o)ll R :o)ll A :o)ll T :o)ll S :o)ll Smaggy!!!! Thats fantastic news! U must be feeling on top of the world! I went to the doctor the day after I got my BFP - he/she should check your blood pressure and may do another pregnancy test and may weigh you. Your dr will also tell you your expected due date. They'll ask you what hospital you want to go to and then my doctor gave me a letter to give to Holles St on my first visit. it was left up to me to make my own appoints with Holles St, the dr gave me the phone number and I was on to Holles St just a few days later to register my pregnancy as they have a cap on the number of mums they take for each month and also the consultants get booked up very quickly and its good to get the ball rolling early. Have a think and maybe do a bit of research into whether you want to go private, semi-private or public as they asked me when I rang Holles St which I was opting for and also which consultant I wanted to be under. Good luck with it all and wishing u a happy and healthy 9 months!!! :thnk

I did some searches on this website thou and got lots of info re differences between private and semi-private & also consultant recommendations from girls who had been through it. Good luck!

[quote:30ikri94]am still in shock so dont feel delighted or over the moon yet atal!! is that normal? [/quote:30ikri94] That is perfectly normal, I actually burst out crying and wept on the toilet seat (not very hygienic :hic ) when I found out I was pregnant. Was so overwhelmed but within a day was lying beside hubby smiling at the prospect of our new family addition. Congrats and enjoy every bit of the next nine months O-O
