Hi! Congratulations! If your last menstrual period began around the 25th of January, you are about 8 weeks along now. You should schedule your doctor's appointment as soon as possible, and start taking a supplement with at least 400 mcg of folic acid (all prenatal vitamins will have this). Good luck! Dr B
You should call your OB/GYN doctor and they will want to know when your last menstral cycle was... since you're last was 8 weeks ago, they will get you in to confirm pregnancy via ultrasound. Then they will take measurements of the baby and confirm for you then exactly how many weeks/days you ACTUALLY are and give you a due date!!!
It's SUCH an amazing time in any woman's life. Congrats and prayers for a happy, healthy pregnancy!!
