First appointment

Hillary • I'm a preschool teacher and have been married for 5 years to the love of my life.
I'm 5 weeks now, this is my first pregnancy and so naturally I'm super excited! I called my Obgyn and they told me first appointments are made after 8 weeks and after checking the books the first available appointment put me at 9 weeks. I'm hearing of a lot of women already going to the doctor right after getting their positive test and wondering if I should be trying to get in sooner? Or is that just for high risk moms? I'm just being impatient lol
