I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant and my doctor has yet to exam me. He has done two urine test but that is all. When did everyone else have their first prenatal visit?

My gp stuffed up and didnt send my letter until i was 11 weeks now i cant get in to see the clinic until im nearly 16 weeks im so angry but there is nothing i can do

I'm in my 6th week and I won't see my doctor until week 9 or so for my first u/s. He doesn't even want to do a test to confirm that I am pregnant and is going by the hpt's. This is my first and the office is telling me that this is their policy unless I have any risks. I have read that most people go around week 8 for their first exam.

I went at 6 weeks, but I'm high risk. I had to call around to find a doc that would see me that early. I've seen the doc twice, had an ultrasound and a pelvic exam, and some bloodwork. I'm 13 weeks now, and have another visit scheduled next week.


Angela - March 7

I'm 6 weeks along and not scheduled for a visit until 8 weeks


Katie - March 9

I went for my first visit at 5 weeks. I think one of the reasons that they took me in so quick was because I had never seen a gyno before.


Kelly K - March 10

I went the first time at 5 weeks, but only because I didn't know I was pregnant and already had that scheduled for my annual. Otherwise it would have been more around 8 weeks which is when I go back for my second ultrasound.

my doc said ntil you have missed 2 periods they will not see you, i think its because there is that chance that something may happen the first trimester... i dont agree with it but just relax


momma 16 - March 27

wow that is really odd i got a pg test from the doc \he week i was late and they wanted me in the following monday for a blood test and then that wednesday for my first prenatal exam but scheduling conflicts made the appt's at 8 and 9 weeks which kinda upset them actually they wanted it to be sooner...sorry you guys r having such doctor issues

I am 15 weeks and I am going to my first doctor's exam in two days. I went once over a month ago to confirm I was pregnant then they told me to come back in a month. I am a little nervous because I pa__s out everytime I get blood taken.


Vanessa stuck in Alaska - April 6

I'm Going in tomorrow for my first official appt. I'm 13 weeks. I think thats a little too late, Military doctors! Darnit!


KK - April 10

I am 5 weeks and my doctor won't see me until I am 8 weeks. This also makes me very nervous!


Lyn - April 14

Well I am 7 weeks and I can't find a doc who will see me now. Everyone says I have to wait until I'm 10 weeks. i'm wondering how do i know what vitamins and stuff I am suppose to take if they won't see me before then? isn't the first trimester crucial in the babys development?


Jena - April 14

I got seen, examined, and got a u/s at 6 weeks. Before that I had gone in 5 times for blood work because my hCG levels were off. But now that I'm preggo with twins, I will go in every two weeks! Usually you go every 4, my Doctor said. As for vitamins, you need extra calcium, iron, and folic acid - so you should definately be taking a pre-natal vitamin that can be found at almost any drug store or supermarket. You may also need an additional calcium supplement. GL!


Kristyn - April 19

They wouldn't see me for my first appointment until 8 weeks, so I asked about the prenatal vitamins. They said they would leave some "samples" at the front desk for me to pick up. I did, and they lasted until the appointment a few weeks later.

When I called my ob they said their standard was 8 weeks. It stinks b/c you always worry that everything is okay until then.
