Are women here having issues finding appointments for initial prenatal visit? The first appointment I got will be at 11 weeks that too I was lucky because I had already scheduled with the doc for some other Obgyn issue back in July and they converted it to a prenatal appt. If I did not have that, I would have not got anything for the first trim. The other docs in the clinic also did not have appts. This sounds very risky. Heard from someone in Texas she did not get an appt until 16 weeks

No issues on my end, but my doctor is also very accommodating. I’m in PA.

😱 i went at 7, 11 & 16 in NJ

Mine won’t see you before 8 weeks for a regular pregnancy confirmation appt so 11 is not unusual. But she would if something was concerning/high risk/etc

I got my 8 weeks appointment but found that the OB’s vaginal ultrasound scanner was broken and she sent me to outside center. The center, even with multiple location, doesn’t have any opening until my 12th weeks. I’m very disappointed.

All the private places I found only do transabdominal. My OB said my womb sits far back and will need transvaginal for the early scan.

I went at 8, 12, and 16 weeks- I’m in TX

I have Kaiser and they’re very regular with their appointments and prioritize prenatal care.

So I just had the greatest and weirdest experience. I've taken up weightlifting - shout out bodbot app and tonal. As I was completing my last rep for curls - I busted the biggest nut of my life. Like toe curling, tingle down the spine, eyes rolled back, brain foggy in euphoria. I just sat on the bench in shock for like a solid two minutes. Is this a thing? Is this why folks are always working out? I've never felt this level of sensation in my life.

Everyone has some aspect of privilege depending upon the context. Privilege means the absence of obstacles/barriers, not necessarily the presence of perks. Though some would say *that* itself is a perk.

Then leaving my employer to study FAR. I am considering to leave my current employer anyways, so it’s more of how my future employer would view that lapse.
