When's Your First Appointment?

Are you eagerly awaiting your first prenatal appointment? Wondering what to expect when you go in?

What can you expect at your first prenatal visit?- http://www.ivillage.com/pregnancy-what-can-you-expect-your-first-prenatal-visit/6-n-138575?ice=iv:mb...

When is your first appointment? My doctor always made me wait until I was 10-12 weeks along and the wait killed me! How about you? When do you go in for your first appointment?

The Army healthcare works differently than most "regular" clinics, etc so I see my PCP on Thursday, October 11th. I'll take a blood test and then when he gets the + results he'll refer me out to OB.

I got my BFP Saturday and made an appointment for tomorrow. I have to be seen sooner since I rely on rely on thyroid medicines to keep me going. I should find out how far a long I am tomorrow.

I got my BFP today and my first apt is tomorrow! I am on thyroid meds that will have to be adjusted and will probably have to get Lovenox (blood thinner) shots so the appointment is pretty much to confirm pregnancy and then try like crazy to get it to stick :smileyhappy:

Since I've been seeing a fertility specialist, I go for the first ultrasound appt to look for a yolk sac (hopefully just one!) on Oct 10th.  I'll be at 5 wks, 4 days.  So, tomorrow!!

I have my "new OB consult" on 11/14 which is just to confirm my medical history and do weight/height, BP, and all the fun blood work. I will be 10w3d then my first apt with the Dr is 11/27 I will be 12w2d. Im HOPING to get a U/S between then because im not 100% sure about my due date. But we will see.

Yikes awoodruff!! You have to wait forever!! I thought wait till 8w2d was killer long (considering I found out way early). I can't imagine having to wait so long!!!

My first appt with my new OB is 11/13, but I got my PCP to do some bloodwork and my HCG and Progesterone levels look good so far.  These next two weeks better go quick!
