  • It seems to vary from doctor to doctor, but it will probably be a LOT of talking. They'll want to know your family pregnancy history, any medical things you've had done, what your plans are for feeding, laboring, etc. (if you have any yet). They'll probably do some blood work, check your urine, possibly do a pelvic exam. My first appointment consisted of all of this except for the exam, plus I had an ultrasound to date the pregnancy. I went back a couple weeks later to meet the doctor and have the exam. Good luck, it's so exciting! I got super excited just reading the subject of your question!

  • At my appointment, I filled out paperwork. The aide asked questions about the conception, and told me when to I would be able to schedule the ultrasound. I scheduled bloodwork, was prescribed prenatal vitamins, got a pap, and listened to the heartbeat. Good luck and congratulations!

  • My hospital just has you come in and does a whole bunch of history check and paperwork. Then in month go back and get all the blood work done, pap, etc.

  • LOL, I kind of enjoyed the diabetes test. Well, maybe not enjoyed, but it was basically drinking orange pop and watching TV for a little while...

  • at my first appt. they took a urine sample, took blood, asked a bunch of questions, did a pap and pelvic exam, and prescribed me some prenatals. But this was at a health unit not a doctors office. But i'm sure it's the routine first visit for most women. Congrats!!!
