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

I had a blood test right away to check my HCG levels but I didn't get a real appointment until 6-8 weeks.

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

Both times I have gone in at 8weeks, that is when they wanted me to come in. It was basically here are your prenatals, and they do a pap smear and all that good stuff. Then I went to the lab and had a bunch of bloodwork, you then go back every 4 weeks until 28weeks along, and then it goes to every 2 weeks until you get to 36 weeks then it is weekly. Basically all I have left is my Strep B test around 36 weeks, other than that it is just to make sure baby is growing properly. I laugh because I spend more time waiting then I do with the doctor, it only takes him 2-3 minutes to come in measure me, listen to babies heartbeat, and answer any questions I have and then he sends me off. Don't get me wrong he does not rush me at all it just doesn't take that long and I don't usually have many questions or ones that take much discussion. LOL

I went in and took a pregnancy test and of course it was positive.. the nurse told me congratulations i said thanks, i knew i was pregnant, i took 4 tests at home including a digital, she laughed and said, you wanted to be sure..lol
she was very nice, her name is karen, i am 4w3d today and go back in 3 weeks on Tuesday 2/20 @ 2:30p, i will be getting my pelvic done, i was hopig i got one fo the midwives but i am scheduled with one of the male drs..it is a 51 mile round trip from home, it didn't seem terribly long to get there and seemed faster coming back home, it was nice, i got a pregnancy verification for my health insurance and for wic if i need it, but we arent on wic right now so i will hold on to it
