How soon did any of you go the OB, and how often during the first trimester?

I went to the ob at 5w -just saw the nurse and filled out all the paper work/blood tests. Then actually saw the doc at 6.5w for an early u/s (They always do an early u/s for dating at my ob's. Typically they do it between 8-12 w but I've had 2 m/c and asked to have it done earlier as my doc was going out of town otherwise I probably wouldn't have seen the doc until around 8 w's). I then had appointments every 4 weeks after that 6.5 week mark. Alot of doc never see you until you are between 9-12 weeks though. It is not uncommon to not be seen until you are almost through the 1st trimester.

I saw the doctor for the first time at 9 weeks and every month since then. So for me I only saw the doctor once during my first trimester.

lol thats what i t hought, but then again i had to get the nerve to tell mom so she'd take me lol. mm do you know when your last period was..or when you concieved? mm can you ask for a different doc. who'll see you now? Because you need to get a pap and stuff done purti soon.
