If you recently took a home pregnancy test and it’s positive—congratulations! Your emotions are hard to contain at this time and you must be feeling so happy and a little anxious right now. While it is true that most home pregnancy tests are pretty accurate, there is also a small possibility that you might get a false positive. The best thing to do is to make an appointment with your OB/GYN is Fort Lauderdale to confirm the positive result. The test you’ll be given is a simple blood test that your health care provider can administer. Once you have confirmed that you are indeed pregnant, you will then need to set up a regular schedule of appointments with your OB/GYN. Usually, your doctor will want to see you every month up until the time you are scheduled for delivery. At that point, the OB/GYN appointments will be once or twice a week depending on your individual situation. At All Female Health Care, a leading OB/GYN in Fort Lauderdale, we have been helping women of all ages get the best obstetric and gynecological care they need. We have been serving the South Florida area for decades and we employ only warm compassionate doctors who are leaders in the OB/GYN field.
What can I expect at my first OB/GYN appointment?
At All Female Health Care, we want your first pregnancy appointment to go smoothly. You should schedule your first appointment when you are approximately 8 to 10 weeks along. At your first visit, your obstetrician will perform a thorough physical exam as well as a pelvic and breast exam. Also expect to have a list of your medication handy as your doctor will also need to take a full medical history. Also, if you haven’t had a pap smear in a while, your obstetrician will want to add this to the list of things to do going forward. If you want to know the exact due date of your baby, you can expect an estimate at this point. Your doctor will estimate your due date and may even do a vaginal ultrasound to hear the heartbeat if you are far enough along. At All Female Health Care, we know that this can be a bit overwhelming for a new mother and we are here to allay your fears and make sure that this pregnancy continues on a healthy course. In any event, you can rest assured that you will receive the best care possible throughout your pregnancy when you deliver and even after that.
