OK, got a BFP, now what?

We weren't TTC, btw, so this is definitely a surprise. But a blessing nonetheless.
I never had a real AF (only 2 random ones, since I'm still ebf at 9 months). I just tested on Friday and I am in fact preggers. Not that I didn't already know, since I can't stop eating or I get naucious, I'm super tired and dizzy. And I have black "hormone" spots on my legs again.
But I have no idea how far along I might be. If I call my doc, will she schedule me for an ultrasound? I know some don't want to see you until you're several weeks along, but since I have no idea, I'm not sure what to do.

Depends on the OB's office. Mine would schedule a dating u/s at some point in the first month of knowing you are pg.

I would call your OB and ask them. They should be able to tell you if they want an us right away or wait.

I would definitly call them and tell them you have a positive test and aren't sure on the dates. With being so nautious and dizzy do you think you could be 8 weeks or more?

A few friends of mine were EBFing when they got pregnant and didn't even get a BFP till 8+wks! One was actually 12wks! LOL I'd definatly call your OB and set something up. My office sees you as early as 4wks for an u/s if you don't have any idea on dates. I was only 4w3d when I had my first u/s w/ #5 and 6wks with #4. Then for dating purposes around 8wks. GL and congrats!! Sometimes the best gifts aren't planned!!
