What to expect from your prenatal visit

Dr. Mom blog explores the What to expect from your prenatal visit
Attending your prenatal visit and going for prenatal ultrasounds and bloodwork is a LOT of work! I learned that when I went through my pregnancy. Even as a health care professional, I sometimes got confused on when to attend my visits and almost forgot to go for my gestational diabetes screen! As a physician, when I do my prenatal visits I often have a little cheat sheet to remind me of the frequency of visits and tests that are offered during that stage in pregnancy. This cheat sheet helps me ensure that my patients get offered all appropriate prenatal tests and also reminds me when they need to return to clinic. I would often refer to this cheat sheet when I was going through my pregnancy. Here is a modified prettier version of my cheat sheet that was made by one of my amazing medical students Megan Crosby. Hope you find it helpful!
