Start folic acid and vitamin d, get in touch with your hospital midwives and they will book you in for an appt just rest lots no heavy lifting, cut out caffeine if possible and eat a balanced diet where possible, just enjoy :blush:

Find an OBGYN and make an appointment. It’s super important for both you and the baby to have quality healthcare. Also, congrats!

Make a doctors appointment. If you don’t know when your last period was they will send you for a dating scan.
If you do know they will send you around the 6 week mark for an ultrasound.
They will also send you for a full bloodwork test

start folic acid. Some doctors will tell you to wait for few more weeks to see a midwife I called my doctors as I was on tablets and they told me to get in touch with midwife congratulations

Start folic acid. Cut back on caffeine, if you are on medication phone your doctor immediately for instructions. And good luck :kissing_heart::heart::heart::heart:
