Pap smear when pregnant

Hi there I am hoping you can help.
I found out Im pregnant, about 5 weeks along or so, it was confirmed at my first doc appointment on yesterday, he has now scheduled me for a Pap Smear next week Friday, and Ive heard that you shouldnt have a pap smear when youre pregnant, is this true, cause Im starting to get very worried.

Dear Lisa
With a pap smear they only scrape a few cells off the outside of the servix, so it is safe in pregnancy and you don't have to worry.
