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?

I know they got me in quick for an ultrasound because I am high risk - just turned 46, and I have been given an act of God in a spontaneous unplanned pregnancy!  My other kids are grown - I have never had anything but an abdominal ultrasound, so I am going to be experiencing a probe US for the first time next Friday. I'm still in shock! I'm a labor and delivery RN - but even I can be surprised! Lara

I use a birth center and I generally don't cal my midwives until I'm 11-12 weeks and they get me in fairly quickly, but since there isn't much they can do it makes no sense to start going in now.

Been trying to join iVillage for a while - boy, do they make it hard. Anyway, hello everyone. I am also 46 and mom to three grown kids, pregnant by surprise, and also due November 7. Went in for my first appointment yesterday because I am nervous - my last pregnancy resulted in a traumatic miscarriage. All looks okay so far, but it's early and only time will tell. Since I can't break my news to anyone in real life yet, I'm happy to have some virtual friends to chat with.

My first OB appointment is on April 11th!  Though I'm sure I'll be seen by my RE before then, go in for another blood draw tomorrow.
