What should I expect during my first prenatal appointment?

Your first prenatal appointment is often the most comprehensive, taking a little bit longer than subsequent appointments. Your obstetrics specialist discusses your medical history and any symptoms you may have. 

They check your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs and complete a physical exam that includes a pelvic exam. Your OB/GYN specialist might recommend a Pap test, urine testing, blood tests, or other diagnostic testing procedures.

They might use ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy and ensure your baby appears healthy. Your provider offers health education, prenatal vitamin recommendations, and answers questions you may have about caring for yourself and your unborn baby. They can help you manage a chronic disease, if you have one, while you're pregnant.

What happens during subsequent prenatal appointments?

During subsequent prenatal care appointments, your provider weighs you and checks your vital signs. They ask how your pregnancy is going, complete a physical examination, measure your abdomen, and check your baby’s heartbeat. 

The FemmPro OB/GYN team offers 2D, 3D, and 4D high-resolution ultrasound, gestational diabetes screening, placental and umbilical cord blood banking consultations, prenatal genetic testing, and much more. They monitor chronic disease management as needed to help prevent complications.

You might attend prenatal care visits each month at the beginning of your pregnancy, and more frequently as your expected delivery date approaches. Your OB/GYN specialist works with you to develop a birth plan you feel comfortable with. 

To give you and your baby the best chance of staying healthy, schedule routine prenatal care appointments with FemmPro OB/GYN over the phone or online today.
