  • You can always shop around for another doctor or midwife. My first appointment was at 5 weeks and I was seen 2 days after I called. I have a midwife though.

  • My first appointment was around then, and it turned out fine.

  • Most doctors wait until the 12 week mark. Unless you are high risk or have history of miscarriage, there is really no reason to be seen before then. Start taking prenatal vitamins and congrats!

  • 12 weeks is normal. There is no reason for you to go in earlier (and you can even go in later) unless there is a problem, like bleeding.
