It would probably be a little on the early side for them to detect anything. It'd be good to mention it though. They'll probably be offering you some birth control while you're there, so definitely mention that you might already be pregnant again.

Most 6 week check-ups are considered 'annuals'. Routinely they do a pap smear and discuss birth control options during this appointment.

It would probably be too early next Thursday for them to notice by your cervix if you are pregnant. The cervix changes color, but that might not be enough time for the blood flow to change, etc. ALL early pregnancy symptoms are hormonal and if you aren't far enough along, your hormones won't be elevated enough.

Take Laura's advice and tell your doctor there is a possibility you may be pregnant.
