After finding so much help on hitched in 2004, I had a look tonight and found this new(??) forum! So thought I would pop in and say hi! ... Why was I looking?? Well having had something dodgy to eat on thurs night, I was very dehydrated on fri, long story cut short - I thought this is more than a dodgy tea and got a BFP when I tested. Then instant panic... Dehydration, food poisoning, teeny baby aaaaaah! I popped to the walk in place and was a bit reassured. However, gonna call gp in the morning. Though seeing stuff on google it says you are unlikely to get an apt before 8 weeks???!! This is my first ever BFP and I feel somewhat clueless!!! ..... Apologies- slightly longer than a "hi"! Xx

Hello and welcome back!
Normal booking in appointments are between 8-10 weeks depending on your surgery xx

Hi, thanks chimpanzee - so I should still go see go first? I feel a bit odd- this is all very new and I won't lie a bit terrifying! Will the gp just take my word on the test? Sorry so many questions - I have scanned the forum but can't see any as stupid as the ones in my head at the mo!! Xx
Thanks Gilsy xx

I just phoned my GP and they made me an appointment with the midwife. They didn't do a test, just took my word for it but I think it might be different depending where you live

Oh and there are no stupid questions lol
Thank you xx

Hi Weeme. It depends on your GP surgery, some will retest, others take your word for it. Some the GP wants to see you, others you'll just make a MW appointment. Call in the morning and explain.
As for your stomach bug, the baby will be fine, I had similar at 7 weeks pregnant, and everything was ok. Your body will take care of baby's needs before yours

Don't worry about the stomach bug, it'll be fine :o) I have never had a GP retest me but some may do. Mine just told me to wait until 8 weeks and then book an appointment with the midwife.
There are no silly questions my lovely xx

Welcome to MD!

Welcome to MD and congratulations! If you contact your GP's surgery, they'll be able direct you as it's different for every area. As for the stomach bug, you probably feel 10x worse as baby is taking all the nutrients they need from you. Just keep your fluid levels up and rest x
PS - no such thing as a stupid question on here xx

Thank you everyone! Managed to get a little sleep last night so feeling a bit better. Will call them at 8 and see what the plan is. We had major wobbles in the house last night, are we too old, what does this mean (selfishly) for our life that we love currently, can we cope? I'm hoping these chats are normal!
Anyway the sun is shining today which makes things seem a lot better too!
Thanks again for all your messages xxxx

Welcome to MD and congratulations!! I was on Hitched in 2004 too, we got married in the June, did you have a different user name then?
It is a massive life change but such a wonderful one (this is from someone who NEVER wanted kids then woke up at 35 wanting a baby!!!!). Age wise there are people of all ages suited to having children, we range on here from very young up to early 40's.
I hope you feel better soon.

Hi, welcome and congratulations! :)

Thanks very excited, I have also hit 35, my OH is 10 years older than me as well, which is making him worry too.
We have an apt at 10.50 this morning - not sure I'll be able to keep the tears in to have any real discussion with the GP - I appear to be a hormonal mess!
