I let my midwife know right away but I didn't have my first appointment until 10 weeks. I know my midwife only takes a few births a month so I didn't want to risk having her be full.

That's exactly why I contacted mine right away. Just a little, "Hey, keep a slot open in April for me!"

Good for you! I'm glad you went ahead and called. I know with mine, she doesn't set up the first prenatal appt until 10-12 weeks, but it's never a bad idea to touch base before then

I called right after I found out at about four and a half weeks. I'll meet with the midwife for our first appointment next Monday right before I hit nine weeks.

I called my midwife (also a friend) the day I got my positive test.... which was like... at 4 weeks pregnant, and then I didn't have an official appointment until February, at which point I was like 5 months-ish?
