When do you go to the ob?

I am due Sept. 7th I think, I haven't called the midwife yet, do you go on right when you find out? I feel like its so early but then I guess I need to get on prenatals. My mom says I should call, I was thinking next month though.

Re: When do you go to the ob?

I've already called my OB. She likes to see you around 6 weeks, but she does a viablity scan at that time and makes sure all the pap/pelvic/labs/stuff are done and up to date as well as start on Rx prenatal. Last time, she also gave me a Rx for some Zofran 'cause the morning sickness was kicking my butt. I hope i don't need it this time around.

My ob does an u/s around 6 weeks to check for the heartbeat , then a couple days later, I see the nurse for paperwork and such, then I usually see him within a week of that appointment.

You should call now and get a pregnancy verification, this will also be your lab work appt, get your prenatals and have the first u/s to see how far along you are. You call now and they will fit you in around 4 weeks from now to come in.

I just called today and got an appt for the 30th. I will be between 9 and 10 weeks. It is with a midwife group. My old obs would see you between 6 and 8 for blood and paperwork, no actual on visit for another month after that.

Ok, I delivered with midwives with older 2, but at the hospital, this pg I plan to deliver at my midwives office, it is a small rural office. Does a private midwife do bloodwork? Lol, I have some calls to make. I feel so clueless about a natural birth! Eek.

I go to a freestanding birth center. They don't see you until 10 weeks. I always call & make the appointment as soon as I get a positive test, just in case their schedule fills up.
