  • usually they do a visit to get all of your pre-testing done and to confirm that you are pregnant before your first official visit as an ob patient. so if you call they will give you an appointment for a checkup, pap smear, and get all of your bloodwork out of the way so you can discuss the results with your dr. on your first ob visit. this is the way they did it for me anyway

  • for both of mine I was about 5 weeks. . . they confirmed the pregnancy, ordered blood work, and scheduled my next appointment.

  • I was 4/5 weeks along on my first. My doctor usually does not see patients till they are 8 weeks but I do not have regular periods so he said come on in and we will see just how far along you are.

  • it all depends on how far along you are when you find out. Unlike the others I didn't know right away I do not get a menstrual cycle, so i only knew once i had more symptoms. They will schedule as soon as they can and like others said they will schedule the confirmation and bloodwork.
