Arrow How long did you wait before going to the dr for the first time once you got your BFP

I am really excited and can't wait! their office is going to be a drive away but it's ok, i feel comfortable and safe at this place which is where i had danae.

how long did you all wait til you went to see the dr?

I am going in as soon as the fog starts lifting, they told me i can just do a walk in and to be their before 11:30am or wait til after lunch which is an hour and then just be their before 4:30pm, they close at 5, i can hardly wait to see everyone, i havent been there since danae was less than 1 years old, i am feeling tired again, i took a long nap yesterday and so couldnt sleep when i went to lay down last night and ended up watching Step up again and went to bed at 3am after i called dh at work for his break then woke up at 8 this morning

yesterday i was sleeping so much, i am soo tired and i am wondering if i'm enemic, i woke up and stood up and felt dizzy and my stomach has already started feeling queasy, i told dh this is soon, i hope once the morning sickness actually starts it doesn't stay for too long.

Re: Going to the dr today for a verification

Good luck and have fun, mama!
I had a blood test done right away both times, but after that I didn't see anyone until 12 weeks.
I usually start feeling crappy a day or two after a BFP, so you sound perfect to me, LOL!

My drs have always made me wait until I was at least 8 weeks, except my current OB she would have seen me right away but I couldn't see her anyway. But I usually wait until I'm at least 8 weeks

I usually went in ASAP. Most of the time it was the very next day.

Re: How long did you wait before going to the dr for the first time once you got your BFP

I went in around 5 weeks with my first two. My third would have been 5 weeks, but I was taking my qualifying exams a few weeks later and was going to be too busy, so I was seen at 4 weeks, and then didn't go back until 9 weeks. I switched OBs after that, and my fourth I was seen at around 6 weeks because my dc had vacation the week before that and I didn't want to bring them. With that pregnancy I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks to check dates, as that was the norm for that practice. My fifth pregnancy, I really wanted to skip that extra ultrasound and basically any extra testing, so I didnt make an appointment until I was 9 weeks, and wasn't seen until 11 weeks. It turned out that my OB had started doing ultrasounds at 12 weeks instead of 8, to include the nuchal translucency screening, which I got pressured into doing.

Re: How long did you wait before going to the dr for the first time once you got your BFP

My first appt was at 6wks 6 days because I had a previous m/c and I wanted to get in there ASAP for a vag. u/s as soon as I could. Saw the h/b flickering away that day. But, normally my OB doesnt see anyone until at least 8 weeks.

I don't think I went before 8 weeks with any of mine. If you have a special circunstance, or issues, then I'd ask to be seen ASAP.
