  • just the regular stuff.... they don't really do anything new. go over any test results you might have had last time and answer any questions you might have. take your weight, bp, urine sample. they don't even do heart beat until 16 or 20 weeks so it's just basically a routine visit

  • if youre 12 weeks your should also get the first sono if your insurance allows and the office does that every where ive been i have a us after 10 wks and then at 21 w a normal pregnancy and if this is your first appt youll get blood work and a pap smear(might not be a full one but peliv exam) if this is your second appt the it should be the heart beat us one, it would be very odd for them not to do that

  • I agree that they will do the heat beat. you should be getting that every app. from now on if this is your first app they will go over all the basic information about changes that you can expect and all the blood tests pap stuff like that your DR should also give you your estimated due date. if this is not your first one then you will get test results and heartbeat and answer any questions that you might have

  • At 12 weeks they should be doing the basics- Check your urine, weight, blood pressure, ask you about any questions you may have and you should hear the heartbeat.

  • They will prob let you hear the heartbeat. If they dont, you can always ask them to let you :)
