Hi and Congratulations! I found out I was pregnant via a home pregnancy test last weekend. I should be about 5 and a half weeks at this point. The doctor doesn't want to see my until I'm 10 weeks (Dec. 2nd). I will be flying 2000 miles for Thanksgiving to see my family and would like to break the good news to them then, but would like confirmation from the doctor before I do so. I really would like to see a doctor before then. Should I look for a different doctor? Is it "normal" not to want to see the patient until she is 10 weeks along? How long was it before everyone say their doctor for the first time?

That is about right on when the Dr. whats to see you the first time. If you have ever had any problems you can alway get in sooner. My Dr. office did the same thing to me. I called them back and had to explain things to them about my problems and they had me come in and at least get paperwork to draw my blood. I still did not see the Dr. or midwife until on my appointment day. I was able to find out the test result so I known for sure by calling after I had the blood drawn. I would call and explain you are going out of town and would like to know so you can take the necessary precaution on your trip if you have to. Good luck
