Anyone else not had an appt yet?

I didn't live here when I had my other 2 kiddos, so I am "new" to the birth center, even though I have had regular gyn care there. They won't let you schedule your first prenatal appt until after you've done the tour and info session, and even though I called over a month ago, the soonest tour date I could book was this Friday. We're out of town the week after next, so unless I'm able to go on the tour Friday and then book an appt for the following week, it will be mid-August before I go in (12-13wks).

Not a huge deal, I know, but I'm feeling impatient about getting in there and hearing a HB!

Anyone else?

Re: Anyone else not had an appt yet?

I haven't! My first appointment is tomorrow. I'm SO excited as I am 11 weeks already.

I'm doing a birth center birth as well. I could have had an appointment sooner, but I told them I didn't care since I assumed I would be low risk, so they decided to wait until we would be able to get a heartbeat. It is nice, since I didn't plan to have an u/s, that my first appointment will be "worth it" since we live about 40 minutes away. I'm so, so excited and ready to go though!!

I've been to see my family doc but I don't see my midwife until July 31 when I am 10.5 weeks. Seems forever away! Lol

That's a good point! I suppose waiting until almost the end (or the end) or 1st tri does mean that I'm not running the risk of going in and not hearing it and having to go back or (worse) wait another 4wks! Have fun tomorrow! Hearing that hb the first time is so exciting

With my first I was first seen by the OB at 11 weeks (according to the ultrasound) and I tested as soon as AF didn't come.

With my second I saw the OB around 7-8 weeks but switched care to a midwife and they would have waited a bit longer since they would have wanted to use a Doppler.

I haven't mainly because I'm moving in a couple of weeks. I'm 9 weeks now (also tested when af did a no-show). I might get something before I leave but if not, I'm going to try and get an appointment as soon as i can in my new spot.

Sent from my Inspire. Hope everything makes sense!

Re: Anyone else not had an appt yet?

Mine is Wednesday. I wanted to wait till 10 weeks cause my last pregnancy i had a appt.at 8 weeks and lost it at 12. I think if i waited till at least 10 they might of seen I was losing it. But Wednesday cant come soon enough.
