But we recently started trying for a baby, what kind of tests or things will my doctor do to check my body to make sure its ready for a baby? Ive never really had a completely planned pregnancy with a dr and all???

 i believe they do  general labs and they also do a hormone check, they will obviosly do a pap ....if it is something that is in your history like cists he might do an ultrasound!

Well, I told them I need to have a lump looked at and that we just wanted to make sure everything was normal, because we were going to start trying to conceive.  They seemed pretty okay with that.  You could always just tell them when you get there.:)  GL

Oh...and I was told they don't to PAP's if you have had an abnormal one in the past year.  Instead they wait every four-five years.  I am sooo excited for this.:)

Great Post! I will be doing the same in October. Yearly checkup but its with a midwife. I usually go to my family doctor but Im going to a midwife and talk about prenatal things. 

So I was wondering the samething!! Thanks for asking.

Do you have any children?
