First appointment timing

Hi everyone!

I am going through something a bit different this time....as I'll be in the high risk category due to my last birth being highly traumatic (even though my first was easy peasy).... My doctor just put through the referral to the high risk ob/gyn clinic. I know that when I was in midwifery care I would not see them until 12 weeks for my first appointment, but wondering if anyone has done the high risk care thing and how long I should expect to wait to be seen!

I'm not high risk, but since my appointment with my doctor isn't until march first I am going in on Monday to meet with his nurse and do my blood tests and stuff. I am going to the same doctor I had with my son, so I already know him and his nurse which is great. Do you have anything scheduled yet?

In my experience every dr or clinic is different. I am usually seen around 6 wks and I am technically high risk bc of my high bp but I see a midwife at an ob practice.

Hey ladies, thanks for the answer....I'm still waiting on the referral call! I didn't have any issues with either of my pregnancies, just the birth itself on the last one so maybe they won't get me in too urgently. I saw my family doc already and she put through the referral...I am hoping to get to see my bean a bit early this time as I can't really believe I am pregnant!

No clue, not high risk here but I hope you hear from them soon. I saw my fam doc because she doesn't do prenatal care, so she had to refer me to a colleague, who won't be seeing me until 12 weeks. But my fam doc did schedule a u/s for me because of my last pg being a m/c.

Im sure you will hear from them soon. I was high risk with my last pregnancy because of my thyroid. I think I saw the high risk Dr. for the first time around 12 weeks also. Good luck!

Just went in tp PIAC for the obs to prove I am pg lol. They are seeing me on the 23rd but I am not sure how far along I am so that doesnt really help timing wise I guess.
