CONGRATS !!!! :o)ll Well just enjoy this week - is amazing feeling when you first find out. Are you overdue your period - if so I would book a GP appt. to get it officially confirmed and it will all role out from there - GP will tell you what to do next but you will need to decide if you are going public or private route first and then if needs be contact a consultant and book yourself in for first visit. Enjoy my head was in the clouds that first week !

Congratulations! :o)ll I had to ask here how pregnant I was this morning so I'm a bit green..however! They calculate from the date of the start of your last period. In my experience of friends and family it seems to be about 2k to go private with VHI in a public hospital and some wouldn't bother going private again but wanted to go private on their first. A good GP will be able to advise you anyway and the girls on here of course!

Congrats! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy! Once you go to your doctor, they'll refer you to a hospital and you can decide whether to go public / semi-private / private, etc. They don't do much for the first 12 weeks and then all of the appointments seem to kick in. Best of luck!
