Default Common-Law PR from within Canada - Medical

Hi everyone,
I am preparing all the documentation to apply for PR through common-law status - I've been living with my fiance in Canada for over a year and we're getting married next summer.
My question concerns the Medical Exam form (Medical Report Section A — EDE/EFE [IMM 1017 SCL]) that has to be included with my application. The instructions on the CIC site are quite misleading and I'm not sure what I need to enclose with my application.
According to the general instruction guide for submitting the whole application, I need to submit 'Originals of copy 2 of the Medical Report: Section A ‑ EDE Form'. This plural 'originals' suggests I need to include more than one? However the instructions also tell me to bring 'The Medical Report Section A – EDE/EFE (IMM 1017 SCL), to be completed by the doctor' - so this suggests I just bring one copy of the form to the medical with me.
I understand there are blood/urine tests that I won't obtain immediate results for on the day of the medical. So surely the doctor can't complete the form then and there for me to enclose with my application - I was of the understanding that once the results come back, the doctor can then submit the form directly to CIC and they can match this up with the rest of my application that I have submitted separately.
The instruction guide then tells me in a little note at the bottom: 'You will need to include in your application proof (Copy 2 of Medical Report: Section A, provided by the panel physician) that you completed the medical examination.'
So do I have to wait for the doctor to get the results of all tests back, and then send me a 'Copy 2' of the form he has sent to the CIC directly as well, before I can send off my application?
I have read all the instructions carefully, several times, and it just makes no sense!
Any advice from those who have done this already is much appreciated! Thanks.

1. Remember the forms are generic, in other situations there could be more than 1 person on the application.
2. You don't take the IMM 1017 to the DMP, s/he has it. Once you have the medical, the DMP will give you a copy to include with your application.

Thanks PMM - well hopefully it is that simple. The instruction guide does expressly tell me to take the form with me to the medical, along with 4 photos, eyeglasses, passport, etc. I guess I'll try and get more guidance from the doctor's office when I book the medical...
