Once you realize you have missed a period, and have taken a HPT with a positive result it is good to call your OB to make an appoinment. Given how busy most OB offices are, your appointment will be a few weeks out from there, usually you will be at least 7 weeks by then.
First appointments are fun, they do a vaginal ultrasound to see how far along you are (by measuring your little jellybean) and give you a due date range. And if you're past ten weeks, they might be able to hear a heartbeat! Congrats on the baby!
