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?

Since I had some complications when admitted for delivery of DD they scheduled an early scan on Aug. 14, so right around the corner! :-)  Dates will be confirmed (Apr 2 right now) and hopefully will hear a heartbeat.  Second appt. is on Aug. 27.

Aug. 24th is my first appointment and I will be 8 weeks.  I can't wait!! I always feel so much better after that first appointment.

My first appointment is September 13th....it seems like forever away :smileysad:  With DD they saw me at 6 weeks and I had a dating U/S at 7 1/2 weeks....now I won't even be seen until 8 1/2 weeks.  boooooo!

Though I was recently diagnosed with mild hypothyroidism so I'll be following up with my family doctor to see about monitoring that....not sure if she'll do that or want the OB to, but somebody has to!

My first appointment was yesterday. Crappy ultrasound machine couldn't give me an accurate edd so I have an appointment at an imaging place tomorrow for a better ultrasound and a follow up with the midwife on the 27th
