Unsure about something

Friday January 7, 2011 I went to the doctors because I was three or four days late and I was not feeling very well and my breast were hurting. I told my doctor that the last day of my last period was December 6th, 2010. My doctor did a pregnancy test and the results were positive. She told me I was pregnant and said she would set me up with a OBGYN. My first visit with my OBGYN is February 14th, 2011. To me that seemed too late and it should have been sooner. I called my OBGYN and asked for a earlier date and they told me that they like the women to be at least 12-14 weeks pregnant so they can see the baby clearly and will be able to hear the heartbeat. Is this normal or should I see a different OBGYN much sooner?
