When is the earliest a doctor will see you during pregnancy?

A doctor may be able to detect pregnancy at around five weeks, though a heart beat will not be detected yet. Just an embryo and the thickening of the uterine wall.

Usually they set up an appointment at around 8 weeks.

In the UK you may never see a doctor unless you have a problem. You will see a midwife from about 8 weeks as well.
