I am currently five weeks along. Once I confirmed my pregnancy (via two HPTs and a missed period), I called my OB to set up an appointment. After some initial questions, they told me I don't have to come in until 8 weeks. I always thought there was an initial appointment to confirm the pregnancy via a blood test, do a general physical exam, etc. and then the first "true" prenatal appointment was at 8 weeks.
I am a low risk, first-time pregnancy but waiting another three weeks to be sure everything ok has already been torture. Does anyone else find this odd?
