pregnant and spotting

a few weeks ago i posted messages that i was spotting on and off, not having a period for 3 months now.. then yesterday on my visit to my doctor for the flu i am suffering i was more suprised to find out i was pregnant.. the doc insisted on the test.. i had the test every month since off the pill and it was negative! then yesterday 4 tests later i am pregnant!

since off the pill and we started used condoms.. but anyway ..
I am now pregnant and the doc gave me meds (venteze for the tight chest) and today i am spotting. I called around for gynaes here in Cape Town.. but the earliest appointment i can get is the 19th Jan 2005!
even tho i mention that i am spotting since this morning! should i rather speak to my GP, but he will again refer me to a gynae who cannot see me sooner..

what do i do now.. this is my first pregnancy, i am 28, and now scared.. my husband is just as excited but nervous thinks that at least one gynae can be available now...

We are not on medical aid, but will pay!
