I just found out that i am pregnant, i think i am about 7weeks pregnant, my first appt is in 2 weeks, i am not sure what to expect, i suffered a miscarriage over a year ago, and just want to know if my baby is fine, how soon can the doctor give me a ultrasound so i know everything is okay?

I think it depends on your doctor when you get your ultrasound. I got 1 done at 5 weeks, but that's only because I complained about spotting. They do bloodwork, a pap, and then just ask lots of questions mostly at the first appt.

I am four weeks to the day. I called my doctor the first day of my missed pd and told them that three home tests came back positive. They said they would not see me until 6-8 weeks after my last period. RMC suggests finding a new doctor, but then the more I read, I don't know what to do.

I guess it's a little confusing, because I have read on here as well that some doctors won't see you until even as far as 12 weeks. I myself have never had a doctor not schedule me an appt right away in any of my 4 pregnancies, so it just seems weird to me that they wouldn't see you sooner.

I found out I was pregnant on a Friday and I called my doctor the following Monday and he wouldn't see me for almost another month. I think they just like to get you a little further along and then see you. That day I had a pap, and an ultrasound. The only reason I had an ultrasound was because I wasn't sure how far along I was. Otherwise He wouldn't have done one until I was 12 weeks.

I had my ultrasound at my first appointment at 7 weeks. It was a v____al one though. I think at that stage it would be too early for a regular ultrasound.
