It's only natural that you're anxious about your first prenatal visit. But don't let that stop you from scheduling an appointment as soon as possible. This meeting helps your doctor learn as much as possible about you and your baby. All these things can help to determine whether you have any particular problems or risks that need to be considered.
Your first prenatal visit will be longer and more involved than other visits. It will include:
- Discussing your medical history
- Administering tests and a physical exam
- Estimating your due date
