Congratulations!  I would wait until you’re a little late to take another test, but make your first OB appointment, as it won’t be right away.

How many DPO are you?  I waited until after my missed period to call the doctor, just in case they asked, and to feel more secure. My appointment still isn’t until I’m almost 8 weeks, though.

@yougotme:  u cn go ahead and make an appt with ur doc…if u got the positive ur far enough along. Congratulations!

Also read up on what u should and shouldn’t eat. Also pick up prenatals, some docs prescribe them but u cn get OTC ones for now

@yougotme:  yea u hav to switch, but dnt take my word for it talk to ur doc. Women’s supplements lack and sometimes hav too much of certain things. Prenatals r tailored for the bby. enjoy the ride. It’s really a miraculous journey (currently 8 months preg and ready to push lol)

I wouldn’t wait, just make an appointment. My doctor had me come in for a blood test (did not talk to MD) on a Monday (to check progesterone and HCG) and Wednesday (to check that the HCG was doubling), but then wouldn’t see me until week 8. Just call the office and ask what their procedure is.
Also, switch to a prenatal (if you go in for blood work, you can ask the nurse for some samples to get you started), and start avoiding alcohol, unpateurized cheeses, and lunch meats (which is the only restrictions my MD gave me).
I would keep doing everything else like normal. In the coming weeks you may not feel the best, so savor it now and indulge in the foods and activities you love!

Congrats! I went in about 2 days before my missed period because two positive tests were enough for me.
