    I am going for my first at nine a.m. tomorrow and was wondering what would go on? I'm excited. And when do they generally schedule the first ultrasound? I wanna hear my babe's heartbeat NOW! Hehe. :)

    At my first doctors app they checked my weight, checked my urine, bloodpressure and tried to work out how far gone iw as according to my lmp I was 6 weeks, they also sent a letter off to my local hospital to inform them off my pregnancy, Had to wait a few weeks for hos to write back and send me a app to see midwife which I was 11 weeks then. Had a nucual scan booked 2 weeks later, I never had a dating scan as I knew my lmp and had regular cycle..Hope this helps

    Usually at the first doctors appt here (USA) we do blood work and family history. Then a week later we do pelvic exam and ultrasound. Mind you this normally takes place week 11-14.
