Saw my RE today for b/w but my first appt with the OB isn't until I'm about 6 1/2 weeks.

I am just 4 1/2 weeks right now, so it will be a little bit before I see the MW.  She is going to call me this morning, but she joked in her email to me last night that this is my 4th, so I have plenty of time.  I have no idea when I will see her for the first time.  I know DH will want to have an appt ASAP.  He's just like that.

The norm around here is not to see you till 12 weeks  I have typically gotten in sooner because of Hyper Emesis (severe morning sickness...)   Thankfully that is not seeming to be an issue this time.  Last pg and this pg, I have had a subchorionic hematoma but that never seemed to get me an earlier appointment. 


The ER Dr was miffed I had not seen an OB yet when I went in with severe cramping yet none of the Drs on my insurance will see you before 12 weeks.   He suggested I go to my regular Dr and I know from my last pregancy he is hands off for pregancy issues.
