Some will do a dating ultrasound. It depends on the Dr. They will probably do a pap and bloodwork.

I didn't get an ultrasound my first ob appointment......I don't remember too much about it. I think its like. Hey, how are you feeling when was your last period. Stuff like that, trying to get a history. But every ob performs differently but good luck and congratulations on the baby :)

I always get a sono with my first ob apt with a lot of blood work.

Blood work, pap probably to make sure your cervix is closed and for tests. Talking to your doc about your medical history, first day of your LMP to estimate your due date, past pregnancies, etc. My doc didn't do
ultrasounds until week 18-20.

ETA: You should definitely mention any concerns you have about the pregnancy or your health to your OB. He/she will want to know. Also ask any questions you might think of. It helps to write it all down so you don't forget anything.
