Q About My First Prenatal Appointment

The nurse didn't mention anything to me, but will I have a ultrasound on my first visit? I'm approx 9 weeks pregnant. I know it varies but I would like to know, I live in Arizona, lol, if that helps any! Thanks for your input.

I'm sure it all depends on what kind of insurance you have as well as your doctor. At my first visit, they took a urine sample. They also did blood work, a pap smear and a v____al ultrasound. Afterwards, we (hubby and I) went to our midwife's office and had a chat about family factors or related illnesses (like heart problems), everything to expect and what medications are safe to take...I took with me a list of all the questions I had, like how much folic acid I would have, if I could take any other medications for things like heartburn, and headaches. I also asked what tests will be preformed. Good Luck Eva!

Well I don't have any insurance! =( Does that mean I will not get one until I'm about 5months? Because that's when they usually do one don't they?? Anyway, thanks Lily for the info! Good luck to you too =)

It doesn't mean that you won't get one it just means that youare gonna have to talk to your dr about it I'm sure if you want one to put your mnd at ease then they will do one!!!!
