Can you find another dr? I wouldn’t personally want to see a dr. who was SO hard to get an appointment with…..I had my first around 6 weeks I think

I agree with the PP, you should see if there is another doctor that can deliver at the hospital you want and who can see you sooner.  You should feel like a priority, escpically as a new patient and being pregnant.

so frustrating, I don’t blame you!!!  hopefully it is just so hard right now because it is vacation season?

By The Way I didn’t hear the heartbeat at my first appointment (too early) but we did see him on the US at that point.  I think heartbeat can’t be heard until about week 9 or 10 (which is 7-8 weeks after conception, in case you are still figuring out your pregnancy math!)

is there any way that you could request that the receptionist(s) could call you asap if/when there is a cancellation? I know yousaid you would just keep calling & checking, but perhaps if you ask you may have more luck?

Like others said, you cant really hear the heartbeat until about 10 weeks anyway, so if that is what you are anxious for, it may be better to stick with your current appt.

Is there anything else about your preganancy that has been making you nervous thus far? There are probably lots of “free” clinics where you could consult with a nurse to get a big rundown of info regarding the stages of pregnancy etc.(though your ob/gyn should have provide you with some/all of this information already–no excuse to wait for the appt. as it can be given over the phone).

Midwives are a good source of information too.

Congratulations on your pregnancy 🙂

I was high risk, but the earliest they would see me was 8 weeks.  12 weeks isn’t that unusual, but frustrating I’m sure!

I heard the heartbeat at 7 weeks! i can imagine how frustrating waiting that long could be. Keep calling and trying to get it sooner!
