What about you?
As to waiting until 12 weeks...with most obstetricians it's pretty standard to wait until you've missed your second af. 12 weeks is only four weeks beyond that point. The benefit is that you'll avoid bringing someone else into the equation. The negative is that depending on the provider it possibly *might* raise some red flags in their mind. Whether or not their justified is really up to interpretation.
For me personally....I don't see any issue with waiting until 12 weeks.

This is my first pregnancy, and we had a lot of trouble conceiving. Not to mention my mom's history of m/c and complications. I don't care about being "natural" with the first one....I want to KNOW everything is ok! Paranoid? Maybe, but it puts me at ease! :

I know in Utah the big medicaid push is to have your first prenatal sometime before 13 weeks, and at least 13 visits...
We're planning on moving near the end of June, pretty much exactly the end of my first trimester. I don't plan on worrying about prenatals before the move, partly because our insurance is changing and will be weird to work with, and partly because I don't really see the need this time around.

As for the mw - I spoke with her on the phone yesterday and the first appt is at the backup ob's office with just procedural stuff. She said it takes about 2-3 weeks to get an appt so that puts me about 8 wks. I will probably try to call today to set up an appt. for reassurance. I had a m/c before my son was born. I knew from a quick u/s that the embryo had stopped growing at 5-6 weeks but I didn't actually have the m/c for another 3 months!! I just couldn't stand the thought of going another 3 months thinking I was going to have a baby only to have a m/c. So for me it is stricly for reassurances.
The next appt is with the mw and that will be much more laid back as far as scheduling goes.
I don't want to raise any flags, but tbh, if I could I wouldn't go in until longer because I barely don't quailfy for medicaid so $$, and I really want to be more relaxed about this pg, less testing, more enjoying.
so, the tightwad in me and the hippie in me are on the same page and I just want to make them both happy!
Maybe I'll call my mw and see how late I can come in without her being cranky with me.
