How long after confirming your pregnancy with your Dr did you hear from the midwife?

I registered my pregnancy with the Dr today. I actually got my BFP 2 weeks ago, but haven't been able to go due to the Dr having no appointments, having morning sickness and work. He said the midwife will send me a letter with an appointment date. How long did it take for your midwife to contact you? I live in Cornwall in the UK.

Pregnancy symptoms? I've never been pregnant so I can't answer this. Hahahahahahah! Just Kidding! lol! I love messin with you! Actually, it may still be EARLY to have pregnancy symptoms right now. You have period symptoms a week before your period is do? Hmmm, I mean in a way it all depends on you. Like do your breasts usually get tender and sore during your period? If they do, then no, that wouldn't be a pregnancy sign for you. I mean like period like symptoms that you don't normally get will probably occur due to pregnancy obviously. It all depends on you. I mean if you don't get a positive in your first pregnancy test then wait a couple days and take it again. Sometimes you recieve a false positive, also, make sure you take your test FIRST thing in the morning when you wake up, mainly so you have fresh urine to take the test. The results will so-to-say be "stronger".

I also had an ectopic pregnancy and yet I got pregnant again within like 9 months! And I was on the Ortho Evra patch at the time. Not saying I never wanted to have kids, but I usually go to school full-time (except for this past Spring semester 2009 where I dropped to part-time) and I'm trying to get my Degree A.S.A.P. cuz I am an older non-traditional student, so time is $$$$. I never had anything but the methotrexate shot. NO surgery whatsoever, fortunately for me. I have never had any STD's. However, for myself what most likely caused my Ectopic pregnancy was the fact I have had endometriosis symptoms since age 15 (which may eventually render me infertile). This condition causes me to vomit every period unless I take an OC or some stronger meds. It also causes severe dymennorhea. This pregnancy (technically my 2nd, but my first child, and also come to think of it, I had no morning sickness the FIRST pregnancy either, lol and I was nearly 8 weeks along when it ended)...I have had no morning sickness (unless you count mild and rare nausea) and that was awesome for a woman whose periods can cause her to throw up at the smell of bacon and other odors, without medication to control it. This time, except for some unexplained bleeding for nearly 2 weeks during my 2nd or 3rd month, which could be because at time I was walking miles and miles each week (I thought, "OH boy, another ectopic?) I was have been doing great and have had no unexplained bleeding since early trimester. I just had a 3rd trimester check-up today and have gained 22 lbs so far. (4 during first trimester, and 5 lbs a month each month beginning at 20 weeks, believe it or not...). Baby is always active and kicking up a storm. He was boxing in his nearly-15-week ULtrasound, lol. Incidentally, I do absolutely no routine exercise this pregnancy since my bedrest for light bleeding. I do get exercise but it's not a routine and it's very much just "around the house" not planned. (I know, not exactly "super-healthy", but I feel like I don't want to overdo after the bleeding and I have a wonderful OB Team of Doctors and Nurses and Staff support so if I need to step it up, I can and will!) Timing is everything. Be in a committed relationship. My husband and I are due to have a boy in a few months. The less stress the body is under the better for your maintaining and keeping a healthy pregnancy. Any questions message me.

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding. Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses. Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes. Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation. Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy. A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy. Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation. A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm. I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings! I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.

I found out 9 days past ovulation. The First Response Early Results, that say they can tell you up to 5 days before you missed period are very sensitive to hcg. Clinical studies have shown them to pick up at 6.5 miu/ml where as most others pick up at 25 miu/ml. Use the first mornings urine for the best results. Also, just so you know, if you do test before your period is due and it is positive there is a possibility that it could be a chemical pregnancy and that you may start your period as normal. Most doctors do not recommend testing before your missed period for that reason.

I'm on the Gold Coast & have a medibank card (I'm in top hospital & extras cover) & am having my bubs at a private hospital :) I can tell you my experience so far as I'm 25 weeks pregnant. Each Ob appointment is $80 & you get $30 ish back from medicare & you'll see the Ob every four weeks until 28weeks then every two weeks. Not covered by medibank. The two important scans at 12weeks & 19weeks were around the $300 mark each & get minimal back from medicare. Not covered by medibank. My Ob charged $1850 at the 24 week appointment for his services of which medicare will contribute a whopping $100 & medibank will contribute $0.00. Antenatal classes at private hospitals charge $240+ & you'll get $0 back. I'd recommend finding a private midwife as you'll pay about the same & get more one on one attention. I called my private hospital & asked if they could give me the name of someone & turned out the nurse who teaches the antenatal class at the hospital also does private classes which was great as she'll know the hospital procedures etc. As far as the in hospital goes, I'm hoping that's when medibank will finally come to the table as that's what they're really there for. If you reach your safety net (as at 2009 = $1111) out of pocket expenses in a calendar year via medicare by the time your 24week bill is due at your Ob you'll get 80% back. Unfortunately for me I did reach my safety net but then 1st Jan rolled around & wiped it clear just in time for my $1850 bill grrr :( As for the amount of money I've spent on actual baby purchases that's a personal choice you could spend a little or a lot & that's up to your individual budget. I hope this helps! Edit - Oh just remembered the initial Ob appointment was $220. Also, I dare say a lot of these figures I've mentioned will be more in Sydney, I know for a fact they're more expensive just in Brisbane a friend of mine's initial consult at her Ob was $375 & medicare only gives back $60. Edit #2 - Hopefully you won't need it but I've been on Zofran since week 6 (for severe morning sickness) & am still taking it. The cost is $60 per box & you only get four tablets per box, this isn't covered by PBS & medicare won't help you, this is where Medibank will if you have pharmaceutical cover. Four tablets in my bad weeks lasts only 2 days!!! So I have paid $30 per day in most weeks just to get through the day!!! Medibank gives me back on each $60 packet, $30. Remember too that the pharmaceutical isn't much per year, in this case I'm lucky I got a top up on Jan 1st!
