I'm 12 weeks pregnant and so far I've only seen my normal family doctor. He check fetal heart rate but that's it, should I be seeing anyone else?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and so far I've only seen my normal family doctor. He check fetal heart rate but that's it, should I be seeing anyone else?

In some communities family docs do obstetrics, but unless yours is one of them, you now need an OB doctor, not just a "doctor." Good wishes. ...Read more
