firstly big congrats on your pregnancy! did your doctor mention your booking appointment or scan? My doctor done the same but also sent a letter to the hospital to book in my first scan which should be at 12/13 weeks but depends on what hospital you go to when that will be, but between now and then yes just wait and look after yourself!

When I had my pregnancy confirmation appointment all she did was confirm, no bloods! I already knew what maternity hospital I wanted to go to so she let them know about my pregnancy and a few weeks later I got an appointment letter from Holles Street for when I was about 14 weeks!!
Bloods, family history and urine test were done here and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat!!! :cloud9 Then she organised my scan for me then and there for when I'm 21 weeks...

Thought it might help knowing what way it happened for me, this is my first too so I was totally clueless!!
Congratulations by the way :thumbsup

When i had my first gp appointment with both pregnancies, doc did urine test, blood pressure etc. She just gave me a referral letter to whatever hospital chose to attent confirming the pregnancy. After that i rang holles street on both occassions. They gave me a date over the phone for the initial booking bloods appointment, to meet with the consultant and then one for the anomaly scan. Ring your doc for a referal letter and then ring the maternity hospital that you want to go to and they will take it from there!
Good luck with everything!

Interested to know this too!

I went to the doc about 4 weeks ago, she took blood, urine, blood pressure etc and confirmed the news but I didnt sign anything...?

I'm waiting patiently for something to arrive in the post!
Am freaking myself out cos there has been alot of misscarriage in our family :(

I'll be going to CUMH (we have no choice in Cork any more!!)
