How many weeks?

I haven't had my period since the last week of january. I just found out that I test positive for pregnancy last night. How far along am I? and when do I need to go to the doctors?

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!

Congratulations!

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!!
