The first appointment is easy. They ask you a ton of questions about medical history. They take your height and weight. They take a urine sample.
They give you a ton of info about pregnancy.
They do a pap abreast

They do blood work and then an ultra sound:)

Don't feel bad. I'm 24 weeks and only gained 4.4 pounds since I've been pregnant. you'll eventually start to gain it soon though.

They do the little ultrasound to determine how many weeks you are, they do the gender scan at 20 weeks

They may be able to tell you at this appointment. I found out at 17 weeks. I'm 21 weeks now. They'll probably also ask you about down syndrome testing, which is optional.

& I'm worried something might be wrong cause i have not took any prenatal pills since I almost choked on one cause they were to big ! Do you think some thing could be wrong since I haven't been taking them ?

Do they tell you right away if your baby is going to have down syndrome ?

I didn't gain any weight until I was 20 weeks. And then it all came on. You should definitely be taking prenatals. It's very important that ur baby gets the proper vitamins.

I'm 23 weeks and still haven't gained any weight. And I'm not big to begin with, when I brought it up to my doctor he said he doesn't care how much weight I gain, as long as the baby is growing safely, and he is. I wouldn't worry about it unless the doctor does:)
