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 yourfirst appointment?

My first appt was 2 weeks ago at about 5 weeks. I called an OB here in town nearby and told the nurse about my miscarriages, my age, and my low progesterone problem when pregnant, so she fit me in for the following day. Had labs, sonogram (all was good there), a visit with doc and she put me on progesterone while we waited for lab results (it's on the low end of acceptable, so staying on it until 2nd trimester). I go again tomorrow morning for another sonogram to see if we can see/hear the baby's heartbeat.

My first appointment will be January 12th. I'll be 9 weeks. No u/s. Just listening for the heartbeat. I'm sure if they can't hear it, they would then do a u/s... but praying that will not be necessary.

Mine is on Jan 24th and I will be almost 13 weeks. I had it for a week sooner but got bumped because the MW will be out of town. I did have a nurse visit a couple of weeks ago though. Definately different for me to see a MW this time since I always had an OB before. I am also not used to not getting an early U/S so it has been a little tougher to feel pregnant and not just sick this time around. I think it will be a lot less visits all around this time. But I guess that is not necessarily a bad thing. Especially with how busy I am going to be once school starts back up.
