They'll do a pap smear and discuss birth control options.  Basically that is all.

I have my 6 weeek appt. in 6 weeks lol. My Dr. does the pap smear and checks my tummy and that's about it.

I think it honestly depends on the type of pregnancy and birth you had.  The pap and birth control are standard but if you had stitches they will check those.  If you had a C section they will definatly follow up on that.  They might check you blood if you had Rh negative blood,  Gestional diabetes, or low iron after the birth.  Take all of your questions or concerns with you though!!

My 6 week does not include a pap smear if I received one prior...My doctor does only 1 a year....I just get my uterus checked and if I want birth control, we discuss it then.
