ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) recommends that pregnant women be seen for scheduled visits and have lab work done to assess their health and the health of the baby. The initial visit is usually between 6-10 weeks gestation. Most women will return for visits every 4 weeks until 28-30 weeks, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, and then weekly until delivery. Ultrasounds are usually done around the first visit to confirm gestational age, and around 20 weeks to assess the anatomy of the baby.
Congratulations! That long-awaited moment is just around the corner! By now, you should have selected a pediatrician, purchased an infant car seat and packed a bag for your hospital stay (robe, comfortable pajamas, slippers, toiletries, lip balm, and clothes for you and the baby to wear home). If you are planning on cord blood collection, place your kit with your hospital bag.
