  • get lots of rest, try to stay away from caffeine in the first trimester, eat healthy i started exercising which was good too.

    my first appt, they took a urine sample, did a pap smear and a pelvic exam they did a transvaginal ultrasound, blood test, listened to the heart (idk if they will pick it up if you are only 8 weeks though probably though) ask you if you have questions, do a breast exam...i think thats all i got done.. :)

  • My first visit was just a nurse visit. I got my vitals checked, they did a urine sample, talked about my cycle to help determine a due date and the like. I didn't see the doctor until my next visit. Eat well, exercise- walking is great. Try to quit any bad habits you may have and take steps to reduce your personal stress level. If a bath is one of your methods, most doctors will recommend water temperature below 100 degrees as much higher can be harmful to baby. Keep crackers or something similar in your room and eat some before you even try to get out of bed if morning sickness is a problem for you. Good luck and congrats.
