My first appointment is 3/11 and I will be one day shy of 9 weeks. They will try to find the HB with doppler, but said it might be too early and I can go back in for a minute the next week to try to hear it. I so wish I were having an early U/S to see the HB, but my practice doesn't see anyone before 8 weeks unless there is a problem.

My OB sees you for the first time at eight weeks.

But my last OB with my last pregnancy saw you as soon as you missed a period to get blood drawn, and then two days later, more blood drawn to make sure your levels were going up, and then a week after that, I had an "intake" appointment with the nurse where I had to fill out lots of paperwork, take some surveys, and make all the appointments for the next nine months. Then it was ultrasound at nine weeks.

No clue. I have to call a midwife on Wednesday to see if we can use her. If not we'll go back to our birth center and that takes insurance approvals so it may be awhile. Hopefully before I'm 12 weeks lol.

I'm actually considering switching from my OB (whom I LOVE and had my VBA2C with) to a homebirth m/w. I have an appt with the m/w on the 4th. I'll be just short of 7w. This is probably our last baby (unless it's a boy LOL), so I really want to do a home waterbirth!!

I'm doing a home birth as well but I'm going to call my regular ob today to schedule the blood panel and stuff. I met with the midwife last night to help my husband get on board with the water birth, just did intake paperwork and history. She will see me again at 8 weeks.

Mine will be this Friday, finally! It will include an u/s and the whole poking and prodding package. I'll be about 8 weeks (7 weeks 6 days).

Mine is on February 28th. I will be about 7.5 weeks along. My doc usually does a dating u/s that day, but not sure if things have changed there. It has been a LONG time since I went in there pregnant, lol.

She has an OB for a backup that I can go to for an u/s or b/w at any time. I'm probably going to set up an appt for that around the same time my OB appt was. I really want to see the baby!

I'm starting to get excited to see some first U/S pics... we have one up already!!! 4butterflies, the midwife has a place she sends us usually, but I like my ob so I would prefer to see them as long as possible, although I think they may stop seeing me once I tell them I'm not planning on delivering with them lol. The midwife told me she didn't mind me seeing both until I decide to tell them I'm having a homebirth.

Mine is 3/5, I think I'll be around 7 weeks. 8 weeks is normally when they see you here, but I had a miscarriage a couple of months ago so they wanted to get me in a little earlier. It is just the boring intake appointment though. Hopefully my u/s will be later that week.
