First OB/GYN Appointment!

I was just wondering if someone could tell me what to expect at my first OB appointment?I've already had 3 blood tests and 2 early internal ultrasounds done due to spotting at 5 weeks. My second ultrasound was a week ago and everything was fine.
Will the OB listen for a heartbeat? Will he do an ultrasound if he can't find the heartbeat, or will he do one anyway? Not sure if he'd try a regular tummy one or not or if he'll do one at all since I've had 2 so far.

Should I prepare for anything, what else takes place?

  • Well, let's see if I can remember.. You will have to pee in a cup to check for proteins, they will take your blood pressure, they will give you a pap smear, and yes, the best part is you may get to hear a heartbeat. Also, they will go through your medical history and ask a bunch of questions which is almost worse than the exam, lol.

  • The first OB appointment is a regular internal exam. If they do an ultra sound it will be an internal one, it's too early for the belly one. They will most likely try to listen for a heartbeat, but it could be too early.

  • pap smears hurt? I've never had one before and for some reason I've always been afraid of them. I'm actually afraid of doctors in general lol!
