5 weeks pregnant. When should I go to the doctor? Feeling quite anxious about baby! Not my first pregnancy but my third. Actually very nervous

i went to docs when i did a pregnancy test, they will no doubt do a test to confirm. I say best go early and get your care taken off to a good start. good luck and congrats

Call your doctor (today) and schedule an appointment. Mention you're pregnant and they'll set it up accordingly. Congratulations.

Thanks. Will ring doc on monday morning. I live in ireland so I dont know if it is different. How soon do you have your first ultrasound? This is my third pregnancy. With my first pregnancy i had ultrasound at 12 weeks but with my second pregnancy i had my scan at 19 weeks to discover twins. I am anxious about another multiple and i am also anxious bout the health of the baby.

cleo~ At my doctors (i'm in the USA), I have an ultrasound (v____ally) at 7 weeks and a "traditional" ultrasound around 16 weeks. Are you hoping for multiples again?

Just out of curiosity Cleo, if this is your third, what did you do in the past? Seems like you should know when to go to the doctor. Did you live elsewhere with the other pregnancies and are not sure of Ires policies?

Thanks tiffani. Not hoping for multiples but I woulnt mind if it was. -E- to answer your curiosity - i dont forget everything I thought this was a forum where you could get advise from other pregnant women. it's only 3 years since my last pregnancy but a lot has changed since then. 3 years ago your went to the hospital under consultants now it a mid wife unit where you see the same midwife throughout your pregnancy.

Cleo, I never said you forgot anything. I was asking you a legit question. If you have been pregnant twice b4, it is odd that you do not know when to go for the third. In the US, the doctor decides when they want to see you, not the patient. I was wondering, as I clearly stated, if you were new to Ireland and the policies surrounding pregnancy. This is a forum for advice and sometimes we need clarification for posts that don't make the most sense. Jeez.

-E- not new to ireland or it policies. Things have changed here alright. Just asked a simple question to see when other pregnant women would go to the doc.
