I called every dr in town that takes my insurance (two pages worth of drs.) They varied from 7 wks to 12 wks. I even explained to all of them that I had a leep done in 11/02 and my last pap showed dysplasia again, and that I was freaking out! I finally convinced one to get me in 9/16 (I'll be 6w5d). I asked one of the dr's offices why they make you wait so long and she said something like, well, we can't really hear a heartbeat any earlier than that anyway. I personally think its terrible. I mean, the first few weeks are so important to the development of the baby. I'm sure that once every woman gets the big + they want to get to the dr to make sure they are doing everything possible to have ahealthy baby. Thank god for my mom and the internet, because I was clueless about vitamins, what to eat, what to avoid, what some of the weird, but normal syptoms are! Sorry, I had to vent. I am just so anxious to get to the dr and hear from them that everything is ok and normal!
