This appointment will be pretty much like the appointments before the ultrasound: your weight, blood pressure, temperature, they might start measuring your fundal height (how big your uterus is), get the baby's heartrate, ask all the normal questions about nausea, headaches, etc., you can ask any questions you have, and that's it. That's how it will be for every visit from now on, with a few exceptions: 26-28 weeks you'll have the gestational diabetes test, 34-36 weeks you'll have the group B strep test, and 36 weeks on you may have vaginal exams to check your progress. And that's it, assuming a routine pregnancy. You won't have another ultrasound unless there's a reason, like baby measuring too small or too big, or reason to suspect fetal distress, etc.
