    Hi, anyone got any idea about why some people see their OB's at 8 weeks and others not until 30 weeks? I'm a first timer and everyone has a suggestion or concern and I never know what to take seriously. I also have to get the RH factor needle-anyone know anything about that???

    Obstetrician... (you aren't dumb at all :hugs: ).

    We don't use them so much in the UK: unless you have complications (and need close monitoring) or if you have private antinatal care. We, generally, use a "midwife-led" care system. Other countries (certainly the US) tend to use more "OB-led"/"Obstetrician-led" care...
