Congrats on your BFP! If you can go to your appointments near work I recommend that. It is much easier to sneak out and take a little longer lunch than to come in hours late or leave hours early. You won’t believe how many appointments you end up having and I’d hate to see you have to use all your sick/vaca time.

Appointments near work since it’s closer to the hospital and if you have any problems you have a shorter commute to the hospital.  Maybe they can do some at the office near your home and some at the office near your work?

Do you have to have them all at the same place? I agree with the others that it’s probably better to do them near work, especially since that is where you will deliver anyway, but just wondering if you have the option to switch to closer to home near the end, say, if you go out of work a few weeks before delivery or something. 

I’m curious which hospital you are going to, since I’m in the Boston area as well.

@luli29:  congrats on your BFP! i 2nd other posters that all that time off will add up quickly and appts closer to work are probably easier.
