  • Call and let them know as soon as you can. When they actually see you depends on the doctor and any complications you may have had in the past. Some doctors want to see you as soon as possible no matter what to make sure everything's going well. Others won't see you until you're 10-12 week along unless you have a problem. Regardless, go ahead and call and make the appointment, and don't hesitate to call before your appointment if you have any issues or are anxious about things.

  • All Docs are different on when they want to start seeing you. Call you OB/GYN and see what they recommend.

  • Mine made me wait until I was 8 weeks (by my last period) for my 1st visit.
    But..I went to the Health Department 4 days after I took a hpt and got a blood test.

  • they usually want to see you when you are 6-8 weeks pregnant, thats when the fetus has a heartbeat, but call today, congrats

  • I'd call now if for no other reason that to make sure there's a spot for you. My OB takes at least a month to get in to.
