On Tuesday I went to Fulham medical centre, the doctor did a urine test and confirmed I am pregnant (fantastic news)
I asked him what I need to do and he told me I need to contact the Womens and childrens hospital, which I did. They then told me to contact the SA pregnancy helpline to get a reference number. Got my reference number, had to phone them back. They then scheduled an appointment for the 04/01/2011 and said I need to go to my local GP straight away to check how far I am etc. As I dont have a GP (did not want to go back to Fulham) they said I should go to a doctor on Military Road.
Went there today with hubby, I told her the whole story and alL she did was give me a pamphlet on being pregnant and said I must wait until my appointment on the 04/01. I told her that I was in a car accident on Wednesday (hit from behind) and she never checked me out (did not even get out from behind her desk)
So now we are confused, it is our first pregnancy and not sure if it is normal that my 1st proper check up is only going to be in January. Is this normal?
If anyone has any advice, it will be greatly appreciated!!! Also need to rey find a doctor, preferably near West Beach for checks later on.
