What is the first doctors visit like? Do you have needles and all that? I am so afraid of needles I pass out everytime! Do they REALLY have to test my blood? I am uncomfortable with Male doctors, but my hubby is in the Marine corp. and I have to go to the Naval Hospital, I wonder if they will have male/female option? I'm so scared...

I was worried with my first visit as well, but it went just fine. They took 4 vials of blood and I tried not to pay any attention. My husband and I had a consult with an OB nurse and that was about it. I am now 25 weeks and everything is fine including my male and female doctor's. Congratulations and I hope everything goes well.

They do take a blood test to confirm the pregnancy. Just tell them you wany a small b___terfly needle. (they don't hurt as bad). As for male doctors I love mine. He delivered my last baby 9 yrs ago and im going to him for this pregnancy also. It's not bad really. Just look at it this way it's a serious job being an OB. And he's just doing his job. Mine is very funny and makes me laugh. Theese appointments are pretty easy and quick so don't be scared. It will fly by!
