  • well i was like you i found out that i was like 10 weeeks pregnant ( yes i was shocked since i had a IUD) and i didnt get to see my obgyn till i was around 14 weeks since i had to wait for my medicaid to be aprroved and they wouldnt see me untill then.But i have had no complications and actuallt this pregnancy has gone by really fast.I guess since i was kind of late finding out.

  • You wont have complications. Most OB's don't see their patients until they're between 8-12 weeks along. It's ok. Just make an appointment.

  • My OB wouldn't even see untill I was I think 8. Just get some vitamins.

  • As long as there was nothing to be concerned about before you got pregnant it is normal to not see the ob/gyn till then anyway so you don't really have to worry more than normal (I would know it's nearly impossible to not worry at all). Just make sure you start eating better and taking prenatal vitamins now that you know.

  • if you are still pregnant at 10 weekd you should be just fine and you skipped the ugly waiting game - cause the first 3 months are when you are mostlikely to misscarry - congrats!

  • with my first, i didn't go to a doctor until i was about 5 months.. i had no complications, and a fairly easy delivery, but i would not recommend waiting that long. the ultrasounds aren't nearly as nice when you wait.. the baby gets too big to have a good pic..

  • Your OB/GYN will want to see you as soon as possible, but you are still early in the pregnancy game. I would make an appointment and just not stress. You should be okay.
