Am due to go for my first combined care visit with my GP in the next few weeks and just wondering if anyone knows exactly what happens at this? This will be my first visit since getting my pregnancy confirmed and first appointment at hospital is due a few weeks after. I am scheduled for a scan at 12 weeks and don't want to tell work til then so also wondering how long this appointment will take, ie can I fit it in at lunchtime as don't want to have to tell employer what I need time off for (even though I know I'm entitled to it, but don't want to say anything til after the scan). Thanks!

i had a scan at 12 weeks and just had app with GP this morning at 16 weeks, she just took urine sample, did blood pressure and felt my stomach i was in and out in less than 10 mins. i would imagine you might have something similar to that, not much they can check really at your stage other than that!
