Oh my goodness, you've done it.  Your period is due or overdue and your pregnancy test/s are positive! Congratulations!! There is so much information to share with you, so many options for you to consider. Which blood tests are recommended, ultrasound scans to discuss (which and when and what do they cost?) and have you thought about where you would like your baby to be born and who you would like to help you with the birth? I have a one-page check list for you which summarises the current routine tests and care, so let's start with that.  

I also have some short videos (and brief summaries) which discuss the different tests that are recommended in early pregnancy and some of the reasons these tests are done.
