Wondering if it's bad to have a hip scope, which is a minimally invasive surgery, during the first few weeks of pregnancy?

In brief: 2 nd trimester.

First few weeks if pregnancy is the time of organogenesis.
Elective, nessasary surgeries if possiable are delayed for 2 nd trimester. If you need this surgery now concider local or spinal anesthesia. Discussion between you, surgeon and obstetrician is the best way to start.

In brief: Better to avoid

In general, it is better to avoid surgery during pregnancy unless they are absolutely needed.
There are risks to both the mother and the baby that are best avoided if possible.
