2nd OB appointment what to expect?

We have had our 1st OB appointment. It was when we were 5 weeks pregnant. We are having our 2nd appointment in a couple weeks. The first appointment we covered the medical history, tried for a heartbeat (Way to early though), etc.

My question is I know that we are going to try and hear the heartbeat again. But what else is going to happen? When will they confirm the due date with an u/s? I have told her that I'm not positive about my lmp.

We already have the estimated due date which is July 16th 2011.  But I think that I may be further than 7w2d and feel it is important to know how far I am.  So that I can keep up with the new symptoms that come along.
Just wondering and trying to figure out. Thanks in advance.

  • They'll give you a due date estim. IF you haven't had a pelvic, if they haven't done one already. Also check weght, blood pressure etc and answer any questions. Most people don't know when they concieved, that's not figured into the due date
