  • All my first appointment consisted of was paper work, being weighed, stats checked and having blood drawn .. Nothing else until my 2nd appointment.

  • Same old same old. Blood pressure, weight, pee stick, paperwork, blood draw to test for STDs, HCG levels, iron, etc.

    If you haven't had a recent pap they may want to do it, though you don't have to. Pregnancy hormones can create false positive results.
