My doctor does not typically see me until I am about 6-8 weeks along.  He prefers closer to 8 so that he can see a good ultrasound pic.  Not to say that it can be done earlier than 8 weeks along, but they are so small then that it does make it easier if you are further along, to see the baby.  Congrats!

My doc likes to see you between 8-10 weeks. You can see the babys heart beat and get a good picture by then. If you go earlier then that there isn't much they can do except due a pregnancy test to confirm.

Every doctor is different. I found out I was pregnant at about the 4 week Mark and I just had an ultrasound yesterday- currently 6 weeks and 2 day. Got to see the baby and hear their heartbeat.
If you haven't called your doctor, now is the time to do so.

I didn't go until I was around 10 weeks with both of mine. They won't really do anything your first app. Your 2nd they should do an ultra sound.

Every dr is different. My dr doesn't like to see patients until they are 10 weeks and at that appt, an exam is performed as well as lab work and an ultrasound. Congrats! :)
