My OB's office is like yours. If you know your LMP, there is no US until 12 weeks if opting in for NT screen or 20 if not (unless other risk factors). The wait is killer, I hear you! The only reason I had one early is for spotting (both times).
Same here. Early ultrasound because of spotting, but if that hadn't been happening I wouldn't have even seen a doctor until 12 weeks. I had an 8 week appointment with a nurse who took my family history and a battery of lab work (hemoglobin, hiv, syphallus, urinalysis, etc.)
