Re: No appointment until Oct.24??

In my experiences, that's pretty normal...I wasn't seen until I was in my 12th week, though I couldn't even call to schedule an appointment until close to that anyway due to insurance. But a lot of doctors won't see patients until around then, anyway, because aside from maybe doing an early ultrasound and prescribing prenatal vitamins, there's not much for them to do during the first trimester.

And yes, the due date calculators online are pretty accurate, considering that they can't tell when you actually ovulated or when the baby actually implanted, which is why you'll probably get an ultrasound at your first appointment. But the due date my doctor gave me is exactly the same as the one I got from online calculators.
