Re: When is/was your first appointment?
I'm going to get the paperwork for my blood draw tomorrow, and they'll set up a first prenatal appointment once it's confirmed. I honestly don't know what'll happen then, as with DD I didn't have a GP at all, and was referred straight to an OB as soon as I found out I was pregnant at 9 weeks, and saw the OB at 11 or 12 weeks. From what I understand, here it's more the norm to see your GP until you're into your third trimester, and then get referred to your OB, as my best friend who had her twins at 28 weeks never met her OB, she was supposed to see him for the first time a week later.
Mind you this time I'm thinking of going with a midwife instead, so I'm really not sure how that goes. Going to get the blood draw first though.
