I just found out i'm pregnant, when should I schedule my first doctors appointment?

Congratulations!: Congratulations!(hopefully they are in order) from my perspective you should make it as soon as you are able; either with your primary care doc or your ob/gyn to 'confirm'..And then you will be given a more definitive schedule to follow. I'll give you a head start...Eat well; and begin a "prenatal" vitamin; drink plenty of water and try to eliminate any junk food/caffeine from your diet. The ob/gyn will go into more detail going forward. In the mean time enjoy the moment! best of luck to you! ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

If you do not like doctors you could have a midwife if one is near where you live. However if you are pregnant do the right thing for the fetus and do see a kind and gentle doctor one you can talk to and then the bond will form and you will be secure and comfortable ...Read more

It depends.: Your blood has to be sent to a lab to be analyzed. How long it takes for them to give you the results varies from lab to lab. It can be as soon as an hour or as long as several days. But a couple of days is a typical waiting period for lab results for your pregnancy blood test. ...Read more

If you go to the doctors to early for a pregnancy test can it be wrong?

If you go to the doctors to early for a pregnancy test can it be wrong?

Just retest: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Follow your Docs adv: Follow your doctor's advice. It is not customary to test all women who own an indoor cat before they become pregnant.

I think I'm pregnant, my question is with last pregnancy I almost bleed to death, will it happen again? Can't the doctors be prepared this time?

I suspect ...: That you doctors will likely be monitoring/on the look out for bleeding issues. But without having more info about the cause of your bleeding it's hard to be able to give you more educated information about the chance of it recurring. ...Read more
