  • It will be the same as all your other appointments... weight & blood pressure check, listen to the heartbeat, and a urine sample if your office tests your urine and thats about it. If you havent gotten it yet, you should be getting your order for your 20 weeks u/s and you will be told when you need to go have it done

  • When i went in for mine (last week) I was quite aggravated that I spent 2and a half hours at the dr office to get weighed blood pressure check urine test and listen to the heart beat for a few seconds. Really its a pointless appointment in my eyes i asked a few questions and all i got told was that i have to do things I dont believe is good for me or the baby and I flat out told my doc i refused. then i got an appt for the 20 week us and i left more frustrated than anything.
