Re: When is your first appointment?

I am the same. I have actually never been seen until about that point, just by circumstance. I have never seen only a bean on the U/S...and thankfully never had to have a 'wand' u/s because I was too far along for it at my first appointments. Haha.

I just got my BFP today, so I am only 4 weeks. I will likely go in sometime next month for labs...then make an appointment for 12 weeks. April sometime.

I honestly prefer to be seen only every other month throughout pregnancy, because getting a sitter for 3 kids so that I can wait an hour to be seen, so that they can measure my fundus and tell me how much weight I've gained is just not worth it. I have a scale at the gym and a measuring tape at home.

I have been very fortunate to have had low risk pregnancies, and I hope this one follows suit!
