Keep me from becoming a crazy lady....

Ok, so TTC#1, after miscarriage @6w in October 2012 . It's month 14. My GP said in Dec that if I wasn't preg by Feb to go and see her then for a referral to a FS. Appointment booked for this Wednesday morning. Appointment also booked for Wednesday lunchtime with a new GP, as old GP didn't seem very interested in taking a proactive approach and my accupuncturist suggested trying someone else.
And I got last night, and again this morning, 2 faint but clear BFPs using FRER. AF due I think Friday, on a 28-30 day cycle, so I think I'm about 10 DPK (I had a +OPK on 24 and 25 Jan).
Oh wise ones - what do I do? Cancel one of the GPs? Old GP is also meant to be giving me the results of some general blood tests, and if this is only a CP I will want a referral anyway, at least for cycle monitoring.
How do I keep calm? Is there anything I can do to minimise the risk of MC/CP(probably not)? My job is pretty desk bound, and apart from Pilates this week there is no major series planned. I have been doing Pilates for 3 years, in a small group, so nothing new..
Please - talk me down from the crazy lady ledge.

Looking good - fingers tightly crossed for you....
If I were you, go to both appointments, do you bloods but also for a chat. You are going to need a new GP while pregnant anyway so finding out now if they are worthwhile is better now than later...

Thanks Satay Chicken. I'm really hoping, but not too optimistic. I also have my standard per AF spotting going on, so I suspect my progesterone is not great. Which is why I really want a referral if this doesn't go well.
