 It's norml to be seen at 8 weeks...I had my first ultrasound at 6 weeks with all of my kids (first pregnancy it was because I was young so I had ore ultrasounds than normal, second third and fourth pregnancies is because I have had 2 miscarriages in the past and have progesterone issues at the beginning of my pregnancies, most women dont have their first ultrasound until 12 weeks to confirm dates) I had my first appts for all of my kids at 8 weeks...during this pregnancy (my 4th and last) I switched back to my old OB because my the stupd doc wasnt going to see me until I was 13 1/2 weeks even with the issues I was having being on medication.

Yes that is norma. My first I saw the midwife at 4 weeks. More was for my comfort. I had a miscarriage 6 months before her. So I just needed someone to talk to. She was there for me. My second saw my midwife at 9/10 weeks and my third we saw her at 12 weeks. But she was there if I needed her before that.

Unless you're having complications you don't need to go in before 8 to 10 weeks. Some women freak out when they go in too early to see anything on the ultrasound. They aren't as far along as they thought or see an empty sac because baby is too small. Always have a second opinion if they tell you there is nothing there. I can't stress that enough! Some women have been duped into taking meds because an unknowing doc told them they miscarried when baby was growing perfectly, just too small to see.

12-13 weeks for my first
5-6 weeks for this one but that's because we didn't know how far along I was
