Go to your gp

i called them this morning, they just said " yeah you're pregnant, sounds like you're 6 weeks, come in for a midwife on the 14th" is that normal?


It's very normal :) I went to see my GP and told I am pregnant 8 weeks. He gave me a phone number of midwifes and they saw me few weeks later :)

Now I am 37 weeks pregnant, saw my midwife last week @my 36w appointment and as she's busy for my 38 week appointment - she booked me at 39,5weeks appointment, and joked that if baby comes a bit early I won't see her again! A bit crazy as from week 36 I feel like I am on my own. Then again- this has been a very straight forward pregnancy and it gives reassurance that everything is just fine!

Enjoy it!

thank you so much!!! not long left for you, how exciting!!!

Not planned and I'm in shock.

have you just found out you're expecting too?

I've definitely calmed down a little bit now, but its so scary, so many things going through your head at once, also feels like a million years until my midwife app.

luckily i have a pregnant friend so the poor girl has had me non stop asking her a million questions and crying to her, but i feel so much better and a lot happier.

i just have a really stupid fear that if i let my self get happy and excited then when i go to the midwife, she might tell me its not real, i feel like i need to take a test everyday to prove to myself its still there ( i'm not though, trying not to be a crazy person)

Hahaha - it's very normal feeling you have there! As my tummy did not start to grow and move till week 16 I was wondering all the time... even now on week 38 I still can't believe I am making a baby inside me, so by any chance I have I pull up my t-shirt and show off my belly to my partner in disbelief so I get his thumbs up that i am growing and everything is just perfect! :)

I read often how some women want to meet baby ASAP. Not me. I just love my bump so much ❤️ And I want him to stay in for as long as he wants and needs!

Good luck with your pregnancy!x
