Your First Visit – What to Expect
You will meet with the Doctor to review your medical history, assess any high risk factors that may impact your pregnancy. Depending on how far you are along in your pregnancy you may be able hear your baby’s heartbeat.
At each checkup, you will have your vitals checked (blood pressure and weight). You will leave a urine sample so we can measure the protein in your urine. The Doctor will ask you questions, measure your belly and listen to the baby’s heartbeat. You will have plenty of time to ask the Doctor questions – be sure to bring a list to avoid forgetting anything.
You will be referred for an ultrasound to examine the baby’s growth and development and confirm the estimated due date. The interval of your follow-up visit will be determined by the doctor.
