Birth control/emergency contraceptive question. To panic or not?

Deep breath. Here goes.
I am not sure if I should take Plan B or not. Here is the situation. I finished my period this past Thursday. My boyfriend and I had sex (without a condom) on Friday night but he did not come inside me. We had sex again (without a condom) on Saturday and he did not come inside me.
Last night we had sex without a condom and we are both about 90% sure he pulled out before coming. I understand the potential dangers of precum. I know we should have been using a condom. I have an appointment to see a doctor regarding birth control tonight which I booked 2 weeks ago because I know that relying on pulling out is not the best plan.
My question is whether or not I should bother to take Plan B. I have taken it once in the past (in that situation the condom broke). I am not overly worried that I am pregnant but my stomach has been flip-flopping all day probably due to overthinking things and nerves. We had sex 12 hours ago so I know it is most effective if I were to take it within the next 12 hours.
Keeping in mind I will start taking the pill tonight, should I take Plan B? I would rather make the call now before I go to the doctor because taking Plan B now would be more effective.
