Has anyone had trouble finding an ob gyn? I just moved to my area and the recommended ob gyns are fully booked. The first date I can schedule is not until I'm 20+ weeks along. Would you just go to a lower rated ob (taking 2 out of 5 stars on Yelp) the first few weeks and then switch when you are able?

Similarly, it took me 4 months to get in. I would do what you're suggesting and definitely make the switch as soon as you can, sounds like you'll be able to switch right at the anatomy scan, which is great.

Prior to that, I only had 3 appts total - initial at 10 weeks w/ ultrasound, 12 week NT ultrasound, and 16 week quick check in, (no ultrasound). So you can get in once they start ramping up in frequency

I am in canada and I am 17 weeks along and still have not been assigned a OB. Here we see our GP till around 20-21 weeks and then are assigned an OB . Ultrasounds are done by other independent entities and the requisition is provided by a GP. I am telling all this to just give you a perspective that even if you are not getting the best OB in the earlier days , its nothing to stress about as long as you are having your ultrasounds on time and do not fall in high risk category.

Thank you!

If you are a low risk pregnancy, I've also had friends use a Family Doctor with a Obstetric specialty and the experience was great. You still give birth at the hospital, and there is an on call OB in the hospital in case something does go wrong and you need care beyond the family doctor's scope.

True, my dad is a Family Practice doc and takes care of OB patients :) Unfortunately, I don't know that they're any easier to get in to

Hi All,

at 6th week and am 31 years old. I live in Canada. When I was asking about NIPT test, My doctor said I do not really have to get it done because of my age. But she said, if I want to get it done I can prefer to do.
Am not very clear if everyone should prefer to get NIPT done. My mom’s eldest brother’s son has some issues like low IQ and learning capacity. Should I opt for NIPT? Any possibility to get false positive on NIPT and end up doing further tests like aminocentesis?
