I found out I was pregnant . And made a doctors appt with my obgyn and they wont see anyone under 8 weeks at the earliest. Has anyone else heard of this? With my 4 yr old son I didnt wait that long. Just a worry wart and think its kind of long to get seen.

Its pretty commen now for them to see you at 8weeks. My doctors office does it to. They want to make sure you wont have any complication with the pregnancy like mostly a miscarriage. My sister in law just saw her ob yesterday till she got her medicade up and running again.

My OB doesn't see patients for anything but pregnancy tests before 8 weeks. I didn't go this pregnancy until 14 weeks.

8 weeks is normal, that's when I saw my Ob the first time this time. With my son my OB at the time wouldn't see anyone until 12 weeks.

Our doctor wont do anything but schedule a dating ultrasound and then refer you to the maternity clinic that wont see you untill you are more then 12 weeks along.  The maternity clinic calls and sets up your apt based on your ultrasound and then you go from there. I stayed with my doctor until I was around the 24 week mark since he works at the mat clinic anyways, and then I requested to be sent to the mat clinic so I didn't have to deal with his incompetant receptionists anymore
