What to Expect on Your New OB Visit

We typically see patients to confirm the pregnancy between 8-10 weeks of the pregnancy. This is usually about one month after your missed period and positive home pregnancy test. However, we always leave room to see you sooner if you are experiencing any urgent problems or concerns. We will do a pelvic exam and update any Pap smear testing and/or STD testing. You will have an ultrasound which is performed transvaginal at this stage of the pregnancy. We will give you lab slips to complete blood work for routine prenatal labs. It is important that you have these tests done prior to your next appointment in 4 weeks.

You will also be scheduled for a telephone OB Work-up or Intake visit with one of our OB nurses. It is during this meeting that we gather any additional background information, order necessary testing based on your background information, discuss genetic testing options and provide general information about prenatal care and hospital policies. The nurses will review pregnancy information with you, including: diet, nutrition, exercise, medication use and others during pregnancy.
