does anyone know what to expect at the first appointment at 8 weeks after you register? Do you get an ultrasound done?

I had my first appt. yesterday at 7 weeks, and all they did was an exam (check cervix, pap smear, check for lumps, etc) and take blood. Then they scheduled me for an U/S for when I turned 12 weeks. But some do it earlier, depends on your dr.

Well the first time i went to the Dr at 9 weeks they just did a pap, checked cervix, b___st, and asked about sicknesses family ect. I didn't get a sono until my next appointment 4 weeks later at 13 weeks. I don't know if it's my insurance or not but it seems as if they don't like to give sono's. ive only had 2 from my dr. I just got one wed. at 20 weeks and im praying that ill get another one before the baby comes

Hi, First..Congrats! Second, what happened to me was blood work, Pap, got my package of prenatal samples and coupons and stuff. Checked my b___sts and I had come up with a list of questions which I found by searching the internet on "Questions for First OB visit" and used the ones I was interested in. This is the time to ask all the questions because they spend the post time with you. I had been having complications so I already had and u/s . But talk to your doctor about the NT test. It is an ultrasound that checks for Downs & Trisomy 18. It is an u/s too. Most DR/s will only do one maybe two. But if you get the NT scan that makes 3. But check your insurance, my old insurance only covered 1 u/s unless complications so if I had done one early I would nto have gotten the 20 week one to find out the s_x.
