i just found out i am pg (yay!) and i am a little worried. i had a mc in april (chemical pg) but now i am having really bad cramps. i have heard it's normal and i'm not bleeding at all, but i'm still a little worried. the cramps were so bad that i just thought that my period was coming. they were like when i was 17 and they put me on bc because they were so bad. they were only really bad one day, but i still get them every once in a while. we are moving back home in august, so if i can i need to wait until then so i can see my doctor and my insurance will work again. is three weeks too long? thanks.

no I don't think 3 weeks is to long to wait to see the doctor
but if you start feeling pains again and or start bleeding I would go in to the ER to be checked just to make sure things are going well. how far along do you think you are? Good luck with everything.

Ditto!

I waited til I was 9 weeks with the one I mc'd and so I got right in at 5 weeks with this one just because I was a wreck. But really at your first appointment they confirm your pregnancy and do some blood work. If youre going to miscarry again, there isnt anything they can do about it (unless maybe if you need progesterone I guess) so I would say take it easy and see what happens. Good luck!

Honestly if your having a "normal" pregnancy you don't need to see the doctor until you're 11 weeks. As long as everything seems to be fine, then I wouldn't worry about waiting a few weeks.
