First OB GYN Appointment

I'm 15w and my family doctor has referred me to an obstetrician. I have an appointment for next Wednesday. Does anyone know what to expect on the first visit? Is it along the same lines as my regular prenatal appointments (blood pressure, urine, etc) or something totally different?

Not sure. Might just be paperwork. You were just seeing a family doctor? I was seeing my OB from the get-go.

At my first OB appt, I had my annual PAP done, an ultrasound, and blood work and urine sample.

I too had a pap, urine tests, blood work, fetal heatbeat, weight, blood pressure and external exams. A lot of times even though you have had procedures done, a new doc will want to do their own tests for their concern.

They will also determine your blood group for rhesis factors if they haven't already. Good luck.

Hi, thanks for all the info! I've had tons of stuff through my family doctor (blood, urine, weight, doppler, u/s, etc)., so I guess I can probably just expect more of the same. :) Thanks!
