When's Your First Appointment?
Mon, 01-07-2013 - 8:00am

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?

My first appointment is tomorrow 02.05 - however, I have had light spotting. My doctor had me go in and do blook work but everything came back OK. Then, she sent me for an ultrasound and I found out I was 6 weeks 5 days however, they said my uterus was shaped funny. I can't wait until I see the doctor tomorrow to find out more information. I am 34 years old and this is my first pregnancy so I am very nervous. Any ideas?

I have had 2. One on teh 24th.  We had an ultrasound and everything looked good heart rate was 171 and measured right at 7w 5d.  I went back in on the 29th because of some bleeding and the heart rate was 173 and measured 9 weeks. Couldn't really find a reason for the bleeding but baby is ok and that what was important.

My first appointment is on the 31. I always hate the intake appointment. It seems like all you do is answer questions. I am just hoping that they schedule a real appointment soon after this one so we can get down to business. :)

I've already had two actually. OB wanted to see me ASAP as I'm a high risk for m/c. Had ultrasounds at 5 and 6 weeks, and another set for 9 weeks on the 29th.

Not until the 30th! I hate having to wait so long but I'm sure the time will go by faster then I expect.
