When you get to know about your pregnancy you are already excited with the news and immediately the thoughts of what next will be going in your head.
First pregnancy brings a lot of emotions together and to put them together or in order we just need to go with the flow.

Timely blood tests & scans to be done as per doc.
Be open to share your feelings with your doc.
