At every visit you can expect the following:
An initial ultrasound is given to determine due date. You can expect to come in for OB checks every 4 weeks from your initial visit up to 28 weeks, then every other week from 28-36 weeks, and every week when you are 36 weeks.
At 16-18 weeks a second ultrasound is given to measure your baby's growth. If baby cooperates and the image is clear it will be possible to confirm the baby's gender.
At 26-28 weeks a third ultrasound is given to measure growth again. Once again, if baby cooperates and the image is clear, gender can be confirmed if it was not confirmed previously.
At 28 weeks a glucose test is ordered.
A variety of optional screenings are offered to patiensts to test for various genetic disorders.
