Re: If you haven't been seen already, when are you calling your doctor/midwife?

I am not calling until about 8 weeks. All our pregnancy care is done by midwives (no OBGYNs or doctors). I have had 3 super early miscarriages and one blighted ovum, so I am hesitant to do call unless I have problems. Last time (with my now 2 year old) I had an SCH bleed at 6 weeks. The doctor gave me a pregnancy test and told me I was still pregnant. No betas, no ultrasound, just a pregnancy test. The same one I had taken and gotten a positive result on 2 weeks earlier. They are useless and the ER is worse.
First U/S unless I bleed will be at 13 weeks (nuchal cord scan).
