Ask the Midwife

What to think!

I thought with my second I wouldn't be so parinoid and worried! Needless tosay last week on Jan 21st I took a at home pregnancy test and it was positive as well was the one the morning of the 22nd. I am excited to have another child could feel more blessed. My breast hurt but that has gone, I did have a very tiny smug of blood on the 23rd evening but it wasn't much.

When Should I Have My First Prenatal Appointment?

I found out that I was pregnant. My doctor set me up with a OB/GYN. My OBGYN isn't going to see me right away. He wants me to be at least 12 weeks along before he sees me.

I'm afraid that is a little to long to wait. This is my first pregnancy and I don't know what I am doing. When is the best time to first see a OB/GYN and get my first ultrasound?
