I am due for af today, took a test & it was +++++, I called my ob/gyn to get an appt & they scheduled it for 4/5 (2 weeks from today)... is this normal to not see me until 6 weeks? I have gone in for my preconception check up & have prenatal vitamins & everything..... so maybe they see no rush?

Congratulations! My first appt. isn't until 03/25, which is towards the ends of my 9th week. I have read that many Dr's will not even see you until you have missed two periods and so I would not worry at all. If this is a normal first pregnancy for you and you have not had a m/c before, 6 weeks is earlier than most appt's. Best of luck and let us know what happens.

Everyone's docs are different. I got in right away at 4 wks to get vitamins. They took some blood and urine and that was it. At my 9 wk appt they took more urine and listened for the heartbeat and sent me on my way! Oh, I got some baby magazines too. I was expecting more but that was about all she did! Lots of paperwork on first visit about family history, concerns, etc. I asked a lot at the 2nd appt. I think I was expecting a lot more but besides tests, what more can they do if you have a healthy pregnancy? I'm satisfied with my midwife. It's my first pregnancy.

Had my first appt at 7 weeks. I'm now 12 and have had two appts so far. The second appt was at 10 wk.

Thanks ladies! this is my 1st so there is no history to be alarmed at... I will be seeing the midwife in the office, I've been going to this ob/gyn for 10 years for my annual paps & everything, never met the midwife, but i think my insurance has a lower copay if I see the midwife-- may be even no copay, I'll have to check when I get home.... I'm so excited! But at the same time, I don't want to get too excited & then be disappointed...

My first prenatal appt was at 6weeks and my next one will be at 9weeks. I think the doctor wanted to see me early because of age. I'm 34 years old.
