    Default Booking into ob?

    I was told to book in by 10 weeks at most.

    I found out with my first when I was 9 weeks, booked in at 12 weeks once the shock wore off and I realised I would have to do this! I couldn't get in to the one I wanted and ended up with one I wish I'd never had. I was told he was fully booked up to early December (baby born in Oct) so that meant many women had booked in straight away (4/6 weeks).
    Next time I found out and booked into to the OB I wanted all along at 4 weeks!

    Quite happy that my GP is also an Ob. However due to twins I still have to go elsewhere to be seen (public hospital), as he isn't equipped for twins and the hospital I birthed at last time doesn't do high risk pregnancies. I've no idea if that means I will be seeing an Ob next or a midwife or what, but not too worried, as find out soon enough.

    There's a saying that goes around - "Ring the Ob and book in before you ring your partner and tell him the good news!!!". I called an Ob and booked in the day I got my BFP (both times). Good luck with your pregnancy.

    Yep most ob are booked by the time you are 6-8wks. Doesn't help when you find out at 10-12wks. Luckily my mothers ob/gynae took me on.

    Default Booking into ob?

    Not that it helps after the fact but my OB always has a few spare spots for past patients so I got a referral and booked in prior to TTC and had my pap done just in case we never found out right away ( lucky for me I found out 3w3d yes that early)
