When is your first midwife/OB appointment?

Mine is Dec. 2nd. I figured there is no point in going until it's likely they can hear a heartbeat. But the wait is killing me! I wanna hear that tiny heart beating!

Mine is this Friday. I've noticed that OB won't see you until you're much further along. I would like my midwife to check a BHCG since I had a chemical pregnancy before and want to make sure my hormone levels are elevating properly.

Haven't contacted anyone yet. We're moving to another state in the next few months so I probably won't bother until after the move, although I might give the MW in the new state a call to give her a "heads up" so to speak.

I'm visiting with a midwife on the 16th. I'm not 100% sure if I'll hire her, but I wanted to get rolling on finding someone.

My first appt is Dec 15th and I will be in my 11th week. Do you think I will be able to hear the heartbeat then? I hope so.

Im meeting mine on 22nd this month (i'll only be 8-9weeks by then)
I'm sure she is going to tell me I came too early as with Harvey they didnt book me in til I was 10 weeks.
Nevermind though it will put my mind at rest thats its all ok by seeing her.lol

My first appt. with my midwife is Nov 22nd. I will be 8 weeks at that point. They see you at 8 weeks and then once every 4 weeks until you get closer to the end.

Sarah, you should definitely be able to hear it.

Well, with Simon the mw couldn't hear his heartbeat at 12 weeks...She sent me for an ultrasound and he was fine, but it REALLY freaked me out. The ultrasound operator was a little surprised that she was even concerned and felt that at 12 weeks, you still might or might not hear it. I have heard of people being able to hear baby with a doppler as early as 8-10 weeks though. I think it depends on the position of your uterus, baby, etc.

I'll only be 6 weeks but its just to meet her and she likes to talk about diet and nutrition she said.

My first Ob appt is December 2nd if not sooner.
post #15 of 28
I just called my Ob today since I can't get ahold of a midwife... I've left several messages.

But my first appointment is January 13... which seems a little late to me.

I go in Wedneday 11/10. I'm hoping he will do a vaginal u/s so I can make sure the baby is developing and has a good heart beat. I saw my son's HB at 5 weeks three days with a vag u/s so I'm hoping and praying for another goo outcome!
post #17 of 28
I go 11/18 and they are planning on doing a vaginal u/s. I will be 7w1d at that point. Can't wait!!
post #18 of 28
Ours is November 30th, they told us that was the soonest they could see a heartbeat on U/S.
post #19 of 28
I'm curious as to why you all are planning early ultrasounds? Do you have an indication of a problem, or not sure of dates, or...? Not questioning your decision, just wondering since this wasn't something that was offered to me in my last pregnancy which otherwise was the pregnancy of 1000 ultrasounds .

We are "recovering" fertility patients. My first son was a miracle after 3 1/2 years of IF; this baby was conceived only after about 8 months, but because I'm in my mid 30s and have a history of fertility issues, my doc will do an early u/s to check to be sure everything is ok. It's actually hard for me to be pregnant without the support of the fertility center staff. I'm not quite sure how to just be a regular pregnant person.
