  • i called my dr. when i first found out i was pregnant. they schedule the appt. soon so they can get your ultrasound referral done and confirm your due date. then the first official ob cycle appointment is at 6 weeks where they do all that wonderful bloodwork, etc.

  • As soon as you find out you're pregnant, at least that's what it was for me and every one else I know. The doctor confirms the pregnancy, does a quick exam and then we all had our first official check up within a few days from that for a regular exam.
