We didn’t tell anyone till around 13 weeks…… it was hard because we are very social drinkers but we wanted to make sure we made it through the first trimester and feel more confident. The wait between appointments tend to last forever, but i hope the ten days go quickly. According to my midwife I would ditch any over the counter pain relievers other than Tylenol, and some allergy medicine but you may want to stay away from all the Over the Counter Medications till you meet with your doctor. I would also try to eat as healthy as you can before your cravings kick in… after that forget it! 🙂

I think you are doing all the pre-visit things you should.  I’d get a book to start reading. I’m reading what to expect.  The books give you a weekly snapshot as to what is happening with you and with the baby.  I’d wait to really tell people until the time you see the heartbeat.  Because they say the chances of mis-carriage go down to 3-5% at that point.  And more so after 12 weeks.  So the longer you can hold out the better.  

Oh yes, avoid deli meats, shell fish, any prescription or OTC meds until you get a list from your doc
