Hi I think I had implantation bleeding on the 16th of April and I tested on the 23rd and found out I was pregnant and I jus wanted to know if I should see a doctor right away or  wait awhile because Im probably not 4 weeks along yet?

It depends on you drs. Mine use to be between about 6 weeks. A friend of mines wouldn't see you until you were 8. Give your dr a call and let them know! Congrats!!!!

Call your doctor. Most, mine included, dont want to see you until your eight weeks. They take your last period over the phone and find the eight week mark for you. This was how my doctor worked any how, they all differ. Good luck and congrats! :)

I found out when I was 4 weeks and had my first prenatal at 6 weeks.

You can start putting together interview questions asap, even while TTC.    
  If you think you might be pregnant then you can interview some providers now.

GL!

I didn't get in until almost 10 weeks (snow and lack of availability did not allow) and was told that it should have been sooner. Your dr's office will tell you for sure: give 'em a 2 minute phonecall. :)

I just call my dr. to see when they prefer. My dr from my last didn't want to see you until 8 weeks. This baby's dr. wants you in at 6 weeks. They vary.
