For all those who are seeing OBYGNs, when is your first appointment?

I just set mine up and it is July 16th. She said we will do an ultrasound at this time.

I feel like that is sooo long to wait for my first appointment. Is 10 weeks along normal to have your first appointment?

I will say I'm sooo excited for it though!

Oh, I'll add that I did already go to the health department to confirm my pregnancy yesterday. They put down my date of conception (may 22) when i'll be 6 months pregnant (oct 22) and my EDD (Feb 15) but that was about it besides telling me to set up an appointment with an OBYGN.

My appt is next Tuesday, June 12th, but all they're going to do is confirm the pregnancy. I doubt I'll get an ultrasound til 12wks.

My doc sees me between 8-10 weeks for the first appointment. I am going to be out of town on my 8 week date, July 3rd, and so will my doctor so my first appointment isn't till the 11th of July. They'll do a pee test, pap and ultrasound.

My OB won't see me until 12 weeks so I haven't even made an appointment yet since I have a good 6 weeks still.

June 18th. I'll be 6wks and 3 days and we'll do a HB/growth u/s that day. The only reason I go in that early is because of a past miscarriage (in February) and she can send that reason code of history of m/c to the insurance company when she submits the bill and they will cover it. If it is not medically justified insurance won't cover it. unless something is wrong I probably won't have another u/s until 18-20wks.

With Riley, i confirmed my pregnancy with my family practitioner at 5ish weeks got my referral to my OB and didn't have my 1st appointment with my OB until i was over 11wks. It really just depends on the clinic and how they schedule patients. Our other clinic in town automatically requests an u/s between 6-8wks to date the pregnancy and then sees you every month after that.

I go in on Wednesday. I am hoping for an ultrasound since I am not totally sure how far along I am.

I will most likely have an u/s at 6 weeks but not an official OB appt. I'll schedule my first appt aftef I've had my first u/s and it will be at 8 weeks.

I have my first midwife appointment 12th June as the doctor didn't listen to me and decided to date me at 6 weeks. Midwife will probably listen to me and just send me away and tell me to come back when im 8 weeks (2nd July).

Maybes we should start a thread to keep track of everyones appointments? (Was in Dec DDC for a while, they done it and was nice)
Would be nice to keep up to date with how everyone is getting on.

I still need to make an appointment for "confirmation" (I already know! haha!). I would like to sit down and read all my insurance paperwork, and read all the details about maternity/pregnancy coverage first. I also do not want to continue to see my current OBGYN for pre-natal care. About a year ago we just moved to a new city (where I live now), and I just needed to see someone to refill my birth control. So, I think I will go to my regular family doctor for "confirmation", and ask his opinion on good OB's. I have been trying to look up OB's in this (new) area with good reviews, and apparently nobody likes to give online reviews! That is okay. I would just ask people I know about recommendations, but I don't want to spill the beans that I am pregnant just yet! So that is my little pickle about OB's and first appointments. Still fairly new to the area, and don't know who to see!

I had my confirmation apt yesterday which is pretty boring. I'll have an ultrasound in 2 weeks to get an exact date since my periods are erratic due to BF still.
