What is the "First OB" Visit?
Your initial OB visit will consist of a comprehensive exam designed to determine your state of health entering pregnancy. The exam will include lab work, as well as thorough education on a variety of pregnancy issues.
Following your First OB exam, other lab tests may be done throughout your pregnancy to verify that you and your baby are healthy. Some of these tests include urinalysis, hemoglobin blood test, glucose tolerance test, and one or more ultrasound scans.
Generally, after your First OB exam, you will be asked to follow up with your health care provider on a monthly basis, up until your eighth month. At this time, visits are recommended on a weekly basis. This schedule is a guideline and your health care provider may ask to see you more often, or less often, depending on your and your baby's health status.
