When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

How far along were you/will you be for your first checkup, and for your due date u/s?

I am not going until Nov 8th, which will be 8 or 9 weeks, not positive on my due date? It feels sooo far away, I don't know how to pass the time. Once I see the heartbeat I will feel much more at ease

I haven't made an appt yet. I will call in another week or 2 - so I'll be 9-10wks by the time I go for it.

Mine is next Thursday and I should be right at or close to 8 weeks. My OB doesn't do a first appointment until at least 8 weeks.

My midwives generally make my first appt within a week of me calling them. I'll be calling on Monday if we make it as that will be 5 weeks! The first one is always more of an information gathering.

Yeah, I wasn't counting my RE visits that helped to get and keep me pregnant. Otherwise I'd already have had multiple visits and interactions! I had a visit at 8DPO, 10DPO and 14DPO.

Re: When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

I still have to find an OB - we've moved since our last birth and I'm dreading doing the research again. My insurance doesn't cover midwives/birth centers. Just hate the whole process of finding someone and then just hoping they're good. And I don't know why, but I really want to find a woman OBGYN, is anyone else like that? Its not like I'm super modest about birth its just I feel more comfortable.

I'll work on it this week and probably have my first appointment around 9 weeks or so.

I had my confirmation appointment a couple weeks ago. My first prenatal is October 25th, I'll be around 8.5 weeks but we won't be doing a dating u/s.
