So my obgyn that I had with Maddi left the medical group she was at and started her own practice. I just called to schedule my first appointment and they said they do not see patients before they are 8-10 weeks pregnant. Does that seem a little odd? Like no confirmation or expected due date? It wasn't that way when she was apart of the medical group. I rememeber them getting me in right away and I had an ultrasound at 6.5 weeks. Does anyone else have a doctor that does this?
I see a midwife practice and it's the same. No appointment until 8-10 weeks. I think that's pretty normal.
big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!
baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
8.16.12 & 12.16.12
Or if you are unsure about your dates. If you have irregular periods, for example, they would want to see you sooner.
In my experience, that is the normal time frame. You might get in for an earlier ultrasound if you are having some type of issue, such a spotting, a history of ectopic or miscarriage. If all is well, there isn't much to see on an ultrasound before 8-10 weeks anyway.
It's the same here, as long as you have moderately regular cycles and they can go by your last AF for EDD then they don't see you until between 10 and 12 weeks. I had an early intake appointment because I didn't O until CD 60ish. They also didn't bother with confirming pregnancy because if you've had a + HPT it's as accurate as the hospital's test anyway.
Mine sees first time Mum's between 8 - 10 weeks and subsequent pregnancies at 10-ish weeks. I am being seen at 6 weeks and 8 weeks but only because I have had multiple losses and have had bleeding and cramping this pregnancy already.
same here. I have neer gone before 10 weeks & then I get some prehistoric u/s to see heartbeat & then you don't come back for a month.
