Bloodtest details
Hi everyone, been reading your forum for weeks now. We were to start trying this month - suprise the home test was positive last night. I am still amazed or shocked I am not sure. This is all new to me, so please help me with the following. I must now go and do the bloodtest, I read somewhere on the site that I can go straight to the pathologists, just give me the details again I cant find it now. What do I ask for and can they give me the results or must it go to my docter. I also want to know what products I can start using to prepare my tummy for the big strech? I think the news is only starting to sink in now, I am all excited and thrilled at the same time. Got lots of questions to ask so I will be chatting to you all soon.

If you have missed a period and the home test is positive, it is not alweays necessary to have the blood test. You next step should be to make a booking with a gynaecologist.
Bio-oil helps prevent stretch marks but you have to use it religiously every day.
