When do you call your doctor to say you're pregnant?

Hi I don't know how things work in the US. I used to live in Scotland and there you only (may) get to see a midwife for questions around week 8 and a scan at week 12, no ultrasounds, blood tests, anything else before that. How does it work here? When do you start seeing your obgyn??

Thank you, everyone. I called today and indeed got an appointment at week 8 scheduled.

Yea in the US you can call as soon as you get a positive, that’s what I did with my first. Since I had a miscarriage this second round of TTC, I’m waiting for my serial HCG test to come back with the expected increase before scheduling, just for my own mental health. Then I can schedule the viability scan for 7 or 8 weeks with my OB.

It’s somewhat similar, my regular doc said to wait for an appt until about 8 weeks then get established with an ob/midwife after that and go from there. I think that’s just for like standard uncomplicated pregnancy, if you have a history of mc or complications they’ll see you sooner! That’s just my experience though!

You can call your Obgyn to confirm that pregnancy and they’ll take it up from there.
