how far along for dr visit ?

i was just wondering how far along you have to be before the doctor wants you to schedule a apt. i am 5 weeks along now. I feel good so far kinda tired.....just a little nervous i had a miscarriage before so thats in the back of my mind of it happening again.

Hi chloe,

Now is a good time, as soon as you know for sure you are pregnant, see an OB/GYN, so you can get started on your prenatal vitamins and blood work, weigh ins...etc. Eat healthy, exercise, take good care of yourself. Congratulations.

God Bless,
