I would call your Gyno and find out when they think you should come in. They need to know your history to tell you what is best.

I called my doctor as soon as I found out and they ended up scheduling my first appointment when I would be 8 weeks. So maybe just call your doctor to get your first pick of appointment times!

@Mrslovebug:  I would call on Monday & mention your diagnosis. They may want to see you earlier than usual or have you see the MFM.

I would call right away. If they say wait a couple of weeks, you can still make the appointment now. Usually they will see you the week after your missed period to confirm. After that you follow a schedule.

My doctor said they want to see me every 4 weeks until 28 weeks. Then it is every 2 weeks until 36 weeks. Then it is every week.

@Mrslovebug:  ditto what PP said. I called my ob right away and they scheduled my first visit for when I will be 8 weeks.

They will schedule you according to when they think they need to. I would call right away–get in the books early!
