I am a FTM in the Dayton/Cincinnati area (closer to Dayton). I'm really unhappy with my OB/GYN. They scheduled the first appointment for 7 weeks and said they would only do blood work and a pap. They said they will not do an ultrasound until 20 weeks, and I'm not even meeting with doctor until 11 weeks -- a nurse practitioner is doing my first exam.
I don't know if this is normal or not. It seems like 20 weeks is really, really late to do a first ultrasound. I am completely terrified of something happening to the baby. So many people have babies who just stop growing and I don't want to go on half my pregnancy without knowing that something is wrong.
So, can anyone give me a recommendation for a good OB/GYN who will listen to my concerns (and actually meet with me), and do an ultrasound earlier than that?
I really wanted to delivery at Miami Valley hospital since they have a natural birth center inside the hospital, but I'm not married to that idea.
