I'm just curious...
I went to my Dr. on Aug 25th and they confirmed my pregnancy and that I was almost 5 weeks along. They didn't run any tests, nor even take my blood pressure. My next appointment isn't until October 12 (I'll be between 11 and 12 weeks at that time).
Even with my first, I went to our medical centre's walk-in clinic for confirmation and was told by the doctor on call that family doctor's typically don't see patients until their third month.
As well, I will not meet/see my ob-gyn until my third trimester.
Is it typical in your area to wait until your second trimester for a full exam? Do you meet with your ob-gyn right away, or do you have to wait until you are in your third trimester as well?
How about ultrasounds? Mine is scheduled for December 12th (20 weeks). Here, unless there are complications or concerns, women only have one ultrasound during their pregnancy, at 20 weeks.
