Huge congratulations luvaduv and best wishes for a healthy pregnancy!! :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll It took us 2.5 years to get here too, so I know how thrilled you must be feeling. The GP tests are not as sensitive as some of the OTC ones, so the only issue might be that their test may not register positive - but it should be fine once you are a day or two past your AF due date. There's no rush to see GP thoough, as they will just refer you to your local ante-natal clinic most of whom wont see you until around 12 weeks all going well.

When I went to my gp she didn't even do a test she ask me had I done one and I said yea around five and as said then ur pregnant! I was glad I went tho coz she gave me advise re supplements hospitals and the forms for combined care

Congrats to you!That is fantastic news. Regarding going to the doctor i would wait a week or two, to make sure that the test reads positive in the dsr if they do one. In the meantime you can see if your hormones are increasing from week to week if you do a clear blue test. get one with the prediction monitor. it will read 1-2 weeks 2-3 weeks and then 3+. then you can be sure everything is progressing nicely.

That's great news, congrats :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll We went to the doctors too soon, I was due my af on the Fri/Sat and we went the following Thursday and the test was very light..she got me to come back the following week to confirm!! So try and wait 10/14 days!!

I wouldn't bother with the GP. I went on my first but she didn't do a test as I had done one myself so she took my word for it, did a BP check, filled out a form and sent me on my way. I think the form was for combined care but I never heard a word back from them. On my second I booked into the hospital myself. I wasn't asked for any correspondence from the GP either time.
