My OB usually doesn't do one until the anatomy scan at 18 weeks unless you choose to do the NT scan at 12 weeks.

@ioliodio - at least there should be (relatively) a lot to see by then!
I am also feeling a little bummed about having to wait until January for the ultrasound, I was really hoping that I could have a photo for Christmas to show close family - but I suppose we can't control the timing and I will just have to be more creative for my private announcement! I don't have an OBGYN appointment yet, I'm waiting on a referral from my doctor (as I don't know an OBGYN in the area), and she told me I should wait until 10 weeks for ultrasound because you can't properly tell anything before then. I'm sure that's just her opinion and every doctor/OBGYN seems to have a different timeline.
I had my HCG levels tested yesterday (900) and going back in tomorrow for another test. My best friend is an OBGYN (in another country), and she tells me that the most important thing is not necessarily the HCG number you get, but the fact that the numbers keep doubling. It's so funny how many different things you get told by different sources, no wonder we are all so anxious / hungry for some reliable information!
But pregnant today, so happy about that!
I got my BFP on Thanksgiving and today is my missed period, so I took it quite early because I couldn't help myself. My first appt isn't until Jan 13th with I believe a nurse or someone else at the practice, then 01/25 with the OB. Is there any reason I should schedule a visit or any sort of pregnancy test with my GP now?
My OB isn't seeing me until 14 weeks for my first ultrasound since my RE is doing a viability check at 7 weeks. But that means I cannot get an ultrasound picture, nuchal scan, see the heartbeat, check growth to confirm EDD... Until 14 weeks... Ugh
