What Should I Expect During Obstetrics Appointments?
Each obstetrics appointment is different, depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Your medical provider will let you know when to make an initial appointment and how often to come in after that. The further along you are in your pregnancy, the more often you’ll need to come in for appointments.
At obstetrics appointments, the medical experts at Capital Women’s Care may:
- Have you leave a urine sample to assess kidney function, hydration status, and potential health concerns
- Check your heart rate and blood pressure
- Order lab work to ensure you and your baby are healthy
- Check your baby’s heartbeat
- Recommend sonograms to check on you or your baby
Your doctor may also have you complete a blood-sugar test by drinking a sugary beverage and checking your blood-sugar level afterward. This test screens for signs of gestational diabetes.
