I had my first appt at 8 weeks and it consisted only of health history taking and a lot of paperwork to read, haha. They also took blood and urine.
My second appt was a 10 weeks and that's when I got my first ultrasound, pelvic exam, and discussed my blood work.
I think they wait to make sure you get passed the risky period, but that's just a guess.
It stinks waiting, though, I completely understand!
