What You Can Expect At This Month’s Checkup

Dec 19, 2010 No Comments by

This month, you can expect your practitioner to check the following, though there may be variations depending on your particular needs and your practitioner’s style of practice:

  • Weight and blood pressure

  • Urine, for sugar and protein

  • Fetal heartbeat

  • Size of uterus, by external palpation (feeling from the outside), to see how it correlates to due date

  • Height of fundus (the top of the uterus)

  • Hands and feet for swelling, and legs for varicose veins

  • Questions or problems you want to discuss – have a list ready
