Congrats and Welcome :)
My doctor told me to wait about 2 weeks to make an appointment. So I called up a couple days after we found out we were expecting and made the appointment for 2 weeks later. There isn't a whole lot they can do that early, so as long as you have no complications - they will wait a while to see you. I know some of my friends doctors didn't want to see them until 9 weeks or so. I guess it all depends on your provider.
I called my mom this time right away because I was in shock. I had been dealing with "vertigo" for a couple months so we had put ttc on hold until I felt better. So this actually was a surprise! I was in such shock. Of course my mom said, "I KNEW IT!" We kept it only known within our family. I'm just about 11 weeks now and still haven't told the "world" especially on facebook.
I must have taken about 6 tests before I believed it. Mainly because we weren't trying and only had sex once that month (thanks to my lovely vertigo and not wanting to do ANYTHING to stir it up!) So I was shocked. Finally 6 tests later, and about $60 later, I believed it to be true.
We are so happy! As I sure you are too! Again, welcome!
