When to see the doctor after taking a pregnancy test and it's positive?
I have recently taken two at home pregnancy test and they both turned out positive. I called my doctor to and they scheduled my appointed for March 30th, 2007. My concern is that this is over a month from when I found out that I am pregnant. Should I see a doctor before this or is this routine?
No, they won't be able to tell you much if you do. Unless your having strange pains or bleeding, there isn't a reason to see you. Typically, a first prenatal visit would be between 8-12 weeks pregnant. The fetus cannot be seen with ultrasound until at least 6 weeks.
***CONGRATS*** And best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy!!
