Hey! Congratulations! πŸ™‚ You should buy a onesie that says something about having the world’s best dad or something. πŸ˜‰ 

 

Set up a doctor’s appointment, buy your prenatals vitamins, relax. πŸ™‚

Awww, congrats!  I remember that feeling- OMIGOSH HOLY CRAP YAY OH SHIT… all at once πŸ™‚  Totally normal, dear πŸ™‚

First, take a deep breath.  Oxygen is good for you and for baby!

Next, decide how you want to tell your husband.  I got mine a card and some baby shoes.  Some Bees have planned (fairly) elaborate really cool reveals, others just excitedly waved the pee stick in their SO’s face- whatever works for you!

Then, call your women’s healthcare provider and tell them you just got a positive urine pregnancy test.  Some offices will have you come in for a confirmatory blood HCG draw, others will not see you until after you’ve missed your SECOND period- so between 8 & 10 weeks.  It depends on your doctor, your insurance, and what is normal for your state/country.

Your first appointment (typically, in the US anyway) will be a pelvic exam, and they might try to hear the baby’s heartbeat with a doppler.  You’ll get a pap smear if you need one to be current, and they’ll give you an information overload about what to expect now.

I would suggest reading up on things to do/things to avoid during the first trimester since so many offices won’t make prenatal appointments until near the end of the first tri.  Search the Bee, check out Babycenter or other online tools, and start taking prenatal vitamins.

Good luck πŸ™‚
