First time Father question

Hi I'm Kristi's husband and we found out we are to be parents on Christmas Day. Kristi took home pregnency tests and they all came back positive. My question is about her first medical check up to make sure 100% that she is pregnant. What is the check up all going to check on? And is it too early to ask them to scan her belly? I am, I believe, a little too overly excited about the whole thing.

  • I am have read one book already:
    The New Dad's Survival Guide (Scott Mactavish), and I am currently reading The Everything Father-To-Be Book (Kevin Nelson). Thanks though for the book suggestion. I have a Barnes and Noble Nook and maybe its available to purchase on that.
