I'm 8 weeks pregnant with my first baby and haven't been able to schedule an appointment yet. DF works 6 days a week usually, but is currently out of town working (he does maintenance on cellular towers). He REALLY wants me to wait until he gets back and gets a day off before I go for my first prenatal checkup. We're not sure if that will be this coming week, or the week after. I've heard that most doctors won't even schedule you an appointment before 8 weeks anyways, and I've heard some drag it out to 11 weeks. I'm really wanting to go ASAP, but I want to respect DF's wished to be there when we first get to see/hear our child. How long is TOO long to wait?
I might add that I'm a healthy person, and haven't had any cause for worry yet.
