I found this group today and so glad to be able to ask you for some advice.
I took a few pregnancy tests this past Saturday and they call came back positve. My first though should've been "OMG, how exciting". Instead, I felt myself thinking "OMG, what now?".
This is my first experience and it was an unplanned pregnancy. I would like to schedule an appointment to get my blood drawn to verify the home tests were in fact accurate. However, I don't currently have a GP in this area, and not sure who I should be scheduling my appoinment with. Would I seek out an OBGYN? Based on everything I've been tracking all along, I'm thinking I'm about 3 weeks along. Seems like it might be a bit too early for an appointment with a specialist at this point. Can I just have a GP or a nurse do that for me?
My other concern is I always thought that if and when I get pregnant, I would want to stay as close to natural birthing experience as possible/safe. I'm worried that if I do make an appointment with an OBGYN, it would be difficult to switch to a midwife down the road.
Anyways, I'm sure I will have a ton more questions for you guys, but first things first, what's the first step?:)
