@marie011:  Congrats!

I would call your doctor to set up an appointment.  Typically, they won’t see you until around 8 weeks.  Start taking a prenatal if you aren’t already and avoid drugs and alcohol.

Happy and healthy 9 months to you!

@marie011:  Doctor practices vary place to place, I went into my doctor the same day I got my BFP for a blood draw to confirm (I’m also a Canadian Bee, not sure about MrsWBS). If you haven’t started prenatals, you’ll want to get on that. If you haven’t been taking folic acid before getting pregnant, you’ll want to let your doctor know. You can speak to your family doctor about who will be your caregive during the pregnancy. Some get an OB, some use a midwife, some remain with their family docs.

@marie011:  Congrats! I would start prenatal pills if you haven’t already. Most already have what you need so any will do. The folic acid is the most important in it. I would also call and set up an appointment, if even just to do a blood test to confirm pregnancy and after that you can set up your first prenatal appointment.

You could also check into some books to hold you over. Mayo Guide to Pregnancy is possibly the BEST book out there on weeksn/months. I love it.

If you got a BFP recently you are more than likely at least 4 weeks along. You can calculate tentatively by going back to the first day of your last menstrual period. That’s how doctors calculate due dates most times. Since My LMP was August 18th, I knew that when I tested at September 13th and got a faint positive, I knew I was almost at 4 weeks.

Congrats! I have to echo the previous posters, call your dr. and set up an appointment. Also get on some prenatals with DHA right away. Not sure if they have it where you live, but in Indiana Marsh grocery stores and Meijer stores offer free prenatals with a presciption. Good luck! Enjoy this time!

Stay active and drink lots of water.

@megz06:  Yep, that’s a great book! Avoid What to Expect When You’re Expecting, also known as “Here’s all the stuff you’re doing wrong, and also a list of things to worry needlessly about.”
