  • At my first appt, I had to give a urine sample(Which you will at EVERY one, so be prepared!) I think they did bloodwork too.... had our first ultrasound and got to hear the heartbeat for the first time =D, Nursed asked a million questions, Dr. came in did a pelvic exam and my pap smear, answered questions, and that was it. No big deal at all! Congrats!!

  • urine, blood tests.
    hear the heartbeat
    ultrasound to determine how far along u are
    lots of questions/intructions

  • Check your weight, pee in a cup, draw some blood, trans-vaginal ultrasound (probably - depending on how far along you are), papsmear, poke around on your belly, you'll get a prescrption for prenatals (or you can just buy them OTC), a big goodie bag full of free samples & magazines, and set up your next appt for a month from now.

    I think that about covers it.

  • All of the above plus fun paperwork. =)

  • i got all of the above except the ultrasound. i would say dont give your hopes up on getting one because some doctors dont like to do them until around 13 weeks or so.
