  • Mine was about 8 weeks. Everydoc is different. Call them up and make an appt. You may get in soon or in a few weeks depending on thier policy.

  • Mine reccomended I be at least 10-12 weeks before I came in unless I had no idea when I got pregnant. She liked the miscarriage risk time to be passed before her patients came in. No sense in getting their hopes up.

  • Yes no sooner than 10 weeks for mine too unless you had a special issue like medication readjustment.

  • Mine said 8 weeks, so we were "guaranteed" to hear the heart beat (I use quotes because, of course, there are occasions where a baby has died already, or the doctor is incompetent, etc - but babies hearts starte beating around 6-7 weeks, so you're typically guaranteed to hear it at 8 weeks with a good doppler).

  • I was 6 weeks with my first but I was 5 weeks when I called so they got me in pretty quickly. WIth my DS I was 4 weeks along. I found at I was pregnant at exactly 14 DPO and they got me in 3 days later. Then they did the first ultra sound at 9 weeks.

    We've recently moved and the OBGYN/Midwives I got to now sees you as early as 6 weeks and will do the first ultra sound at your first appoinment.

    It really just depends on your doctor or midwife.
