Is it your first one?

They generally do a pap, swab test (for infection/disease) and might check dilation because of how far you are.

Usually they do blood work up on your first or second visit checking for stds/ HIV .... Blood count levels, vitamin levels, blood type, and general routine labs to make sure everything is good. They'll do blood pressure and vaginal cultures, I just went in for check up on my third pregnancy, but he didnt do a pap because I had just had one in feb. and transvaginal ultrasound or maybe a regular ultrasound since you're so far along... And then vaginal exam where the doc will
Check cervix , etc to make sure things are good.
