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?-

I don't know when my first official visit will be, but I have my annual exam scheduled for Monday, 3/12. I've had it scheduled for more than a month and I won't be 5w yet then. Right now I have a call into them to get them to let me come in for b/w this week. This will be my first pg not followed by an RE at the beginning so its new to me...

I have a 6 week ultrasound scheduled for March 26 and then a nurse appt. on April 2. My first official doctor appt. is April 25. In my last pregnancy, I miscarried at 5 weeks 2 days. I'm anxious about March 26 but I'm sure everything will be fine.

I haven't even called yet. LOL I know they won't see me until atleast 8 weeks so I'm not in any rush to make the appointment yet. I probably will in the next week or so though.

My first appt is with the nurse practitioner on March 21, and then my first visit with the doctor will be April 11. I'm not sure what the difference is...

I had a mini appointment today in the urgent facility because I was on recalled birth control and my PCP wanted to confirm pregnancy. I go back on Monday for another blood test. I don't know if these count as official first appointments though!

Mine is March 20th! I'll be 6 weeks that day. They wanted me to come in on Wednesday this week but I can't. I'm assuming they want me to come in early because it's my first pregnancy.

Finally booked my first appointment. Going in on the 22nd. I'll be 8 weeks by then. Hopefully it will go smoothly since I'll have my boys with me and the youngest has his 18 month checkup right before my appointment.
