They will likely do blood work and do a PAP smear, a breast exam, get your weight, and take a medical history as well as do an STD screening. They’ll give you your due date as well!

I don’t know what your office policies are, but did they get a blood type? My office did a blood type test, cystic fibrosis, HIV screen, cholesterol, etc.

I know at my first baby appointment, they took samples of my urine (to check my protein levels) and my blood (to test for certain diseases). And I also got some information regarding things like symptoms commonly associated with the first trimester and what sorts of activities are safe or not safe during pregnancy. (And if it makes you feel any better, Fiance didn’t go with me to that one. He wasn’t feeling so well at the time.) My follow-up is this Wednesday. I have no clue what to expect then.

One piece of advice I have is to check with your insurance policy before you agree to any ultrasounds. With my first, I had a dating ultrasound early on and found out later that my insurance would only pay for one. I didn’t want to know the gender anyway, but if I knew I would only get one, I probably would have waited until my baby looked more like, well, a baby. Congrats!

Also, I found Babycenter to be a tremendous source of information and support, both the site and the forums. I still keep in touch with moms from my “First Time Moms April 2006” board! You can find a board there for literally everything parent-related that you can imagine.
