Hi s wife! Nothing to worry about, they'll just do the usual, urine sample, take blood, ask you your medical history, check your blood pressure, do a scan - that's about it from what I can remember. I was really apprehensive before my 1st appointment but it's all grand! Good luck & enjoy it! It makes it all so real!

Hi S wife, That's what happened at my appointment anyway so I assume it's fairly standard across the board. The urine sample is usually just to check your protein and sugar levels, there's nothing to it, you just pee in a bottle and they stick in a little stick which tells them what they need to know. You should have another scan too. Best of luck!
