Well, since my midwife can't do much before 14 weeks or so, that's when I start prenatal care. I do start some of my clients before that though, especially if they are first timers to help them start off eating right, etc.
We don't even try to listen to the heartbeat until 18-20 weeks because we don't use ultrasound if we don't absolutely have to.

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

wow, seems like things are different where you all are from, over here they will do an u/s to determine your edd, i don't knowif they'll do one today or wait til the next official appt. and the Hb is looked for about 10 weeks so i know i won't get this today
its already after 10a so i am going to go after lunch so we don't have to rush over there and get rushed outfor lunchbreak..lol
i am slepy and thinki will go take a nap for a little bit before my kids wake up then feed everyone and head out the door, i hope they don't take too long with me, dh and the kids are going to stay in the car while i go in, he doesnt want anyones sick kids to come near danae so that si why their stayingin the car, he said if it takes too long he's going for a drive with them to keep them occupied

Go take your nap. You deserve it!
I guess with the twins I saw him at 11 weeks, but we were having issues with me trying to explain my cycle to them, LOL. We don't get an u/s at all until 20 weeks, although I wish I had one sooner with the twins so I knew before then!
I think it depends on the doctor around here, too - some will see you really early and some wait. Mine waits- but they have a really big practice and can't always get you in right away. I'm still in love with my OB, I think I always will be, LOL

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

I went in within a few days with my first 2 kids to get the slip for WIC. With Sofia, I went in right away because I had just had 3 back-to-back m/c's & needed to get HCG & progesterone levels done. I also had an u/s at 7wks with her to check for viability. This one I was almost 6wks when I went in & got my BW done at 5w3d & 5w6d. I had my viability u/s at 6wks & am going back in 4wks (next tues) for my 2nd appt.

Re: Going to the dr today for a verification

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.

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.
