I'm around 5 weeks and took three tests that all came out positive. My drs office said they want to wait to see me until I am 8 wks cause at this point the doctor can only see the sac, but they're won't be anything in it for him to see. Is this normal?

If you're not a high risk pregnancy some doctors wait till they can do an u/s, but some may call you in immediately so they can do blood tests etc. Just different schools of thought... don't worry about it.

This will be my first, so i'm not considered high risk. It will just calm me down a bit once I talk to the doctor and confirm everything so far is o.k.

Well, you can't really tell much at 5 weeks, maybe the presense of a sac.... He can confirm HcG in the bloodstream and test you for STD's other infections, blood RH, etc. But he can do all this at 8 weeks without any issues. If you experience anything out of the ordinary be sure to call them right away. Good luck

Yes, this is totally normal, but I had the same concern when they pushed me off until 9 wks. If they see you now, they'll only confirm you're preg. But at 8 or 9 weeks they can do a v____al ultrasound and see the baby.

I am 8 wks today, and my doctor wouldn't schedule my appt until I was 8 wks either. I go to the doctor's in 2 days. I'm pretty sure 8 wks is typically the norm, so I wouldn't worry about anything.

the doctor I was seeing would not see me until 10 weeks. I did have to take a blood test to confirm the pregnancy before my first appointment. And at 10 weeks if they can hear the heartbeat thru a doppler and all seems fine you dont get an ultra sound until 20 weeks
