    Default Timing of appointments in pregnancy

    So I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I have my dating scan in 2 weeks then I go back to dr to get a referral to hospital. Is this all the normal timing?
    My friends 2 weeks ahead of me and is already seeing an obstetrician but going public so I'll have midwives.

    That's normal for early pregnancy, I haven't seen my ob and I am nearly 14 weeks and have only seen my gp twice. Second time was to get referral for 12 week scan. Depends on whereabouts you are and what care you request I think. Good luck!

    Sounds normal to me I went private and had my first ob visit at 9 weeks and scan at 12.

    Sounds right I went public and had my first midwife appt at around 13 weeks (they told me it needed to be booked after the 12 week scan so you can bring the results in).

    Sounds normal. I went public & saw GP for referral for a dating scan & the scan at 12wks. Also for referral to the hospital. For a normal pregnancy appointments generally went: 14-16 (first appointment), 20 (scans done about this week too), 24, 28, 31, 34, 36, 38, 40, 41. About 3 of these appointments were with one of the hospital OB/registrars instead of the midwives.
    Additional appointments scheduled as necessary.
    Good luck!

    I was under the impression I was about 9 weeks when I had my first scan turned out I was 12+3... so that turned out to be a dating scan too... then I went back to see my doctor and she gave me the hospital referral, but she asked for me to see the doctors there (I'm going public too) so I called the hospital, and they gave me an appointment which was 6 weeks away (as they were booked out for a while) you keep the referral and they send you out some forms that you need to take for your doctor to fill out. You don't need to send these back just bring them with you to your appointment with any copies of your blood test results and ultrasounds I hope I didn't confuse you more lol I'm doing shared care so my next antenatal appointment isn't until September
