I cant tell if this ? Is about midwives or obs or both. But just in case... I see an ob
Intake 7.5
Us 8.5
Appt to review bloodwork and us 10.5

Also I did the blood test confirmation at 5.5 weeks but I didn't see a doc or anything. I just went to the lab. My doc won't even see you without that.

Re: When did/do you have your first appt?

My first appointment will be when I am 8.5 weeks, and it will be my initial appointment and an ultrasound.

Re: When did/do you have your first appt?

My first appointment is at 8.5 weeks. I've heard they don't typically do ultrasounds until 20 weeks, so I might fake that I don't know my last period date so I can can get an earlier 'dating' ultrasound. With my other 2 I had ultrasounds early on between 8-10 weeks and I can't imagine not having one until 20 weeks!

Re: When did/do you have your first appt?

I see an OB, first apt is at 8w3d. Pelvic exam and urine test.

With my other pregnancies only a 20 week u/s unless they have trouble finding HB or you are measuring large for dates, or don't know your LMP, or have bleeding or some other problem.

They give first timers a free copy of "What to Expect when you are Expecting" on their first visit.

My RE does 1st u/s @ exactly 6w3d. I thought it was strange they were so particular; I can understand not wanting it earlier (to ensure they can see hb) but no later seemed strange. A week from today so I'm so excited!

I had an ultrasound at 6w4d to see hb, I'm an RE patient too but 6w3d fell on a Sunday First OB appointment is at 8 weeks 4 days.

Capizzi - I'm so nosey, I totally wondered if you see someone at CORM? That's where I did my IVF.

Had my first appt at 6w3d but only because I had been in the hospital over the weekend. The appt was originally for when I was 7 weeks. All they did was take blood work, weight, blood pressure. I had an ultrasound at 6w4d and had a regular apptmoint yesterday at 7w6d. (8w1d according to ultrasound).

Yes!!! I see Dr. Schnell but have seen Dr. Sims a few times too (he actually will be doing my u/s). Who do you see? What a small world! I wonder if we've ever seen each other in the waiting room. So did they release you to your OB right after that first ultrasound? For some reason I was thinking they would keep me until 10 weeks.

Re: When did/do you have your first appt?

I'm and RE patient too, so I had betas done at 14dpo and 17dpo. I was "supposed" to go in and have an US done at 6w and again at 9w at which time I would be released to OB care.... but I opted out of all that. Soooo, my first "official" appointment with my home birth MW will be when I hit the 12w mark- March 24th.
