  • Asking you your first day of your last period, a pap smear, talking about prenatal vitamins, giving you your "estimated due date", checking to see if they can hear a heart beat... umm I am having a brain fart! That's all I can think of right now! I'm sure everyone else will fill in my blanks! Good luck!

  • Ugh... the first is the worst IMO. They usually do an u/s, a pap smear, a blood and urine test and sometimes a breast exam. Also, the typical, weight... height, blood pressure.

  • My first they did the pap, brest exam, urin test, like an interview to ask about you and the dad history, and give you the EDD. Than schedualded the ultrasound and lab work.
