Whats with family doctors?

I'm so pissed, I really need to see the doctor to start my prenatal care for this pregnancy. I tried for weeks to get through to make an appointment and when I finally get through they give me an appointment in June. This is BS I will be in my second trimester. Its just worst doctors office but to change or get a new doctor is so hard. I'm just so irritated. I've always just used clinics but when I got pregnant I had to get a family doctor I hate family doctors. What should I do?

Ive learned to just go to the office to make my appointments instead of trying to ring them on the phone endlessly.

You could go to a clinic for regular check ups until your appt in june.

besides, there really isnt much they do for you until around the 12 week mark anyways ( well here at 12 weeks you get an ultrasound, internal exam ) other than that its pee in a cup, how are you feeling have a good day. there is no fetal heart beat monitoring or anything like that. You go once a month until later in your pregnancy.

just go to a clinic to get an order for your initial blood work, and your urine checked, then go to your appointment in June.
