How early did you see your Ob-Gyn

I called this morning and the lady in the office said that I can only see my doctor in four weeks as they only do the pregnancy test after 8 weeks of my last menstrual cycle! I can't remember with my previous ob-gyn but we didn't wait this long, as soon as the HPT came positive I called and took an appointment and was taken in, so I don't understand why I have to wait 4 more weeks to have her confirm my pregnancy! My morning sickness will confirm it by then :)

My doctor's office is the same way and I don't like it either. I am really hoping I can convince my husband to go with a midwife. We meet with her on Friday (Sept 23) but didn't get into my OB until Oct. 31.

That is when my first appt was with DS and it ended up being pretty awesome because we got to see him on ultrasound moving his little arms and legs. Great first visit! :)

I'm under the care of an RE, so I saw her at 4w3d, the first business day after I got a positive HPT.
