After 2 months of TTC we finally we have been successful. I am probably around 4 weeks or so since my period would have been the 23rd of March. I know I need to call my doctor but when do they have you come in? I feel like I am starting all over again even though my daughter is really only 3 years old!!!

Congrats on the pregnancy!

Congrats! My doctor will only have you come in, if you want to, to confirm your pregnancy with a test that you take at home. lol Other than that they won't see you until around 10wks.

This. I would call now, but they probably won't make an appt for you until you are 8/9 weeks.



Congratulations!!

I think it varies by doctor. Here OB's don't see you until almost the third trimester (but you usually go to your family dr for a physical, blood work and first ultrasounds). I made an apt with my midwife almost a month ago and it's for April 4th (earliest they could get me in) I'll be almost 16 weeks.

2 months is really fast... it took me 8 months with my son then 4 & 2 for my 2 miscarriages... now I'm finally 9 weeks it took 7 months... as long as you have had NO miscarriages in the past they will not want to see you until 8-9 weeks. but if you have had loss/es they see you asap. I started seeing my ob at 4 weeks... call them and tell them your last lmp & they will schedule you an apt based off of that. call asap sometimes they book up fast!

It would be best to go ahead and call to make an appt. All OB's are different. Mine took me at 6 weeks during this pregnancy because we found out so fast and called right away. If they don't give you an appt for another 4-6 weeks, then go to a drug store near you and pick up some prenatal and folic acid (over the counter) and start taking them until you get in to the dr.

It felt like a long time but I understand that not everyone body will work the same. We are very lucky and Congrats to your new little one! I wish the best of luck to you and your family. I never had a miscarriage so I am sure they will ask me to come in around 8-9 week mark because that was the time I found out I was pregnant with our daughter.

This!



My OB doesn't start seeing patients until 12 weeks. Only reason I got in early was because of recurrent miscarriages.

Congrats!



My doctor said they wouldn't see me until 8 weeks... But I'm sure you can do one of those online due date calculator things just so you can get an idea of how far along you are :)

I called and they are having me come in to confirm the pregnancy. So I am sure they will have me come back around 8-9 weeks to do more.
