Im 17and super nervous. I have my first visit in 2 weeks. I will be 6w 5d and i have no clue what to expect.
For my first appt they just talked with me about my history and what to expect.
So will they do an ultrasound. I havent been to any doctor yet except the teen clinic when i found out i was pregnant. and also will i be able to hear the heartbeat.
Quoting shadow_lark:They'll probably just ask a couple of questions. They may do a pelvic to confirm how far along you are (unless they've already done an ultrasound). Ask how you're feeling and do a weight check...ask about your home life and advise you on what meds are safe to take during pregnancy... that kind of thing.

Thanks so much. Has defintley helped and one last question. I am 127 pounds and 5' 8'' tall. How much weight should I gain and when will I start showing?
First off they will talk with you. They will ask about your family medical history. Being that you are 17 don't be surprised if they ask you if you want to keep it or considered other options. Next they will get your height and weight and calculate an est due date from the info you give them about your last cycle. If the office is equipped with an ultra sound you will be given one. It will most likely be a vaginal ultrasound as you are very early. You will pretty much just see a sac and a heart beat cannot be heard. As for an approximate weight you should gain there isn't one. Yes you will find suggestions and guidelines giving an answer but everyone is different. Thats really the last thing to worry about. Oh and ppl show at different times. Given your weight and height you will probably show later on in the pregnancy, especially it being your first.
My first appointments are always family history and paperwork stuff. I don't get an u/s. But I also know when my periods are. So that may depend on your doc. A heartbeat is sometimes detectable at 6 weeks. But only by ultrasound. If you haven't had a pap before or in over a year then that may happen or be the next appointment. It will be ok! And my biggest advice, find a doctor you love, agree with, and feel comfortable with. It's important to have a good relationship with your caregiver.
