My ob wont see me until next week and I'll be 11 weeks. It's driving me crazy! Has anyone else not had their first appt yet either?

I haven't! Mine is on Monday. My birth center normally starts people at 10 weeks. At the time I made the appointment, I thought I would be 10 weeks, but I actually think I'll be a little less. Who knows. I'll be excited to go, though!

I am still interviewing midwives as well. I don't anticipate having my first appointment until 13 weeks or so. I am 11 weeks tomorrow.

yep, although I wouldn't call it waiting. just because of crazy summer activities, the soonest I could schedule an appt was for early September. I guess I'll be a bit over 11 weeks by then.

Lilya! I'm in Chapel Hill and had my first babe at the women's birth and wellness center. It was a wonderful experience for the most part. They are very supportive. Are you planning a homebirth again?

I had blood drawn at 8 weeks but that was about it so I don't think it really counts. First real appointment at 12 weeks.

Yes, I am planning a homebirth. I am trying to make a list of my midwife options.

My OB won't see anyone for 11 weeks. Probably because they don't have many docs in my town. My first appt is Monday. I can't wait!

My mw offered to see me sooner if I wanted, but I'm just going for my first appointment on Monday. I'll be 11w5d then... and praying hard for a nice strong heartbeat!

I haven't had a real appointment...we had a consultation with the midwife where we asked her questions and she told us about her practice. Our real first appointment is on Tuesday (12 weeks!) and she will do blood draw, heartbeat, etc then.

I am so hoping for a beautiful heartbeat, because we go on vacation the next day and will be seeing a ton of our friends... it's time to spill the beans!

I emailed our mw on Saturday, so don't have an appt. scheduled yet. I'm not in any hurry, but either my dh, kids, or other friends ask me about every other day when I'll have an appt.
