What to expect from your obstetrician

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life. We are here to provide excellent care before, during, and after your pregnancy. Knowing what to expect from our staff and your appointments lessens your stress, and helps you make informed choices about your care.

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life.

Your initial appointment is generally scheduled when you are 7-9 weeks pregnant. Subsequent appointments are scheduled every 4 weeks. The first appointment will be the longest. At this time, your doctor will gather your health history, perform an examination, and make sure you have the appropriate prenatal vitamins. Questions and concerns will be addressed. Your doctor will provide you with information on how to increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy.

During the first trimester, appointments with your obstetrician are every 4 weeks. During this stage, you will have blood work and a urine analysis. A fetal Doppler allows you and your physician to hear your baby’s heartbeat. An ultrasound will also be done during the first trimester.

Throughout the second trimester, appointments are every 4 weeks. You will be weighed, and your abdomen will be measured at each appointment to track fetal growth. Additional screenings, including those that check for birth defects or abnormalities may be offered at this time. At the 20-week ultrasound, you will once again have the chance to see your baby.

During the third trimester, you will be tested for gestational diabetes and group B strep. Your doctor will discuss these tests with you as they approach. You will begin to see your doctor every 2 weeks and then every week when you are 36 weeks pregnant. As your due date nears, signs of labor will be discussed, and your cervix will be checked.

Postnatal care is important. Five to six weeks after you deliver you will have a postpartum appointment with your doctor. This allows your doctor to check for proper healing. Your OBGYN can answer questions regarding breastfeeding, mental health, and birth control.

Our Northwestern GYN team is highly skilled and experienced. We strive to make you feel at ease and to address your concerns in a friendly, compassionate manner. Your health and your baby’s health are our highest priorities. We are experienced with normal pregnancies as well as these that are high-risk. If you have a complicated pregnancy, your appointment and screening schedule will be personalized to allow a more closely monitored pregnancy.
