Q&A: Timing Of First OB Appointment?

I called yesterday to schedule my first doc visit. They didn't schedule me until the middle of my 9th week. Is that okay? —carriem428

We typically schedule low risk patients for their first visit at around eight or nine weeks. There are some cases when we recommend women come to the office earlier (when they have a positive pregnancy test), such as if a woman has had recurrent early pregnancy losses or if she needs to be on blood thinners for a known blood clotting disorder.
