Hello ladies!

I received my BFP by HPT on Sunday and was confirmed at doctor's yesterday. I have made my choice on who will be my OB doctor, but should I wait to make the appointment or when is the best time to go and see OB?? I dont know if I need to wait til I am at least 8 weeks or what??

Any suggestions??

I would call your OB and let them know you got a positive HPT.  They will let you know when your first appt. should be.  I think with my first child, my appt. was at 8-10 weeks(from my LMP).  Congrats!!!

You should call them they have an idea of when to see you

 

Congrats and good sticky baby dust luck!

I would call now and so that your appointment is available to you. The OB should be able to give you the information you need so that you and the office can go ahead and schedule your appointment for the future. Good luck! And congrats!

I would call right away and schedule an appointment.  However, I'm a little curious (and please don't take this the wrong way), but would your pregnancy be considered medium or high risk?  If not, then why would you automatically see a surgeon for your care?

Cramping in early pregnancy is very normal.

I had cramping around 4-5 weeks and I thought for sure AF was coming...Lol  Is this your first child?  It is quite common to have mild cramping in the beginning.

No medium or high risk pregnancy...I was just saying OBGYN in general...guess I should specific!
