When is the first appt?

I am 5 wks and my first appointment is Dec 29. I will be 8wks by that date and that feels like forever. I can't remember with my daughter so when is the first appt usually? well they do an ultrasound? I feel like a first time mom.

  • It depends on the Dr. mine was when I was 6 weeks. They did not do an ultrasound, but did find the heartbeat for us!

  • That is the right time for a first appointment. They might give an ultrasound. If they do, it will be an internal one.

  • oh, and they did not do an ultrasound for mine, but a friend of mine's doctor did. My doctor had the philosophy that he only did one ultrasound at 20 weeks unless there was reason to do otherwise. My friend had one done at almost every appointment.
