When is/was your first appointment?

I was just wondering when you ladies are seeing your DR for the first time?
I got my BFP at 3 weeks 6 days went in for the blood test at 5 weeks 1day. I was able to call and set up my appointment with the nurse to "start my Chart" that will not be until the last week of September at that time I will be 10 weeks 6 days then it will be up to another two weeks before I get the paper work to MAKE my first OB appointment. This just seams like forever away right now.

Re: When is/was your first appointment?

Well, we're using a homebirth midwife, so pretty much when I want? I'm going for an ultrasound around 7-8 weeks, and will probably start seeing her around 11 or so weeks.

Re: When is/was your first appointment?

I'm only 4 weeks along. I called the doctor to confirm it and get a referral, but she hasn't gotten back. I was also thinking of looking into a couple midwife's in the area. I'm wanting a home birth and if I have to, I will switch to tricare standard to get it.

From my understanding you can still have a home birth covered through Tricare Prime if the you are seeing a CNM (certified nurse midwife) but it will not be covered if you see a CPM (certified professional midwife). I do know for sure that if you call and ask your tricare region if home birth is covered they will say yes, but they forget to give you these small details. I've also heard of a few gals that have argued with tricare prime in their region and got back about 40% of the midwives fees after the fact.

I should add that we too are planning a home birth and have Tricare Prime, (though DH is retired now). We are planning on paying out of pocket for our midwife and fighting Tricare after the fact.

Re: When is/was your first appointment?

A couple weeks ago I've been in twice... had bloodwork twice and an u/s.

Next appointment is in 2 1/2 weeks I think. Guess I should have written it down

After 4 flat on my back awful hospital deliveries, we finally live somewhere with midwives. I love her, and am super excited to be ending my birthing years on a good note!!

First appointment is tomorrow, I'm about 5, possibly 6 weeks. I'm meeting with a midwife so don't really need to wait for a doc or nurse to let me in, plus I've asked to see her earlier to possibly apprenticeship under her. MW's office is connected to a cloth diaper store... I'm so in trouble!!

I need to call. With my last pg, they didn't want to see me before 10 weeks. I'm only 6w2d now. On the other hand, my OB is lame so maybe now would be a good time to doc shop.
