I've just found out I'm 41/2 weeks pregnant and I'm over the moon because DH and I have been trying for 3 years and they'd told us it was near impossible for me to get preggers. But we finally got there through ivf
Since this is my first pregnancy and practically a miracle conception, I wanted to make sure I get things right. My question is, how important is it to see an obstetrician asap? Even though I should be waiting till the scan before booking things I thought I'd be organised anyway. I have booked with Gil Burton as soon as I found out the good news but his first available appointment isn't till 14 November, which means I'll be 11 weeks and nearing the end of my 1st trimester.
From those who have previous experience, will this late appointment be a real problem because I know most complications happen in the 1st trimester and this is my first pregnancy? Or is this quite normal because I know it can be really difficult to get appointments with obs?
I have my heart set on seeing Gil because all my friends and online reviews says he's absolutely brilliant! so I'd prefer to not choose another obs, but if it means I might be risking my pregnancy too much then I'll find an alternative obs with an earlier apptmnt.
If it looks like I should be seeing an obs asap, can anyone recommend a good obs that delivers in the Royal North Shore private?
Thanks so much ladies
