Your doctor may also check your cervix and the position of the baby inside your belly. It’s a good time to talk about the delivery process or meet the pediatric doctor who will look after your little one after delivery.
What to expect:
- Your doctor may check your cervix if you seem to be close to labor.
- You’ll do a urine test.
- You’ll get your blood pressure and weight checked.
- Your doctor will listen to the baby’s heartbeat.
- Your doctor will feel and measure your belly.
What to ask:
- What position is the baby in? If it’s a breech position, are there ways to move the little one into position?
- What happens if I go into labor when you’re not on call? Who’s your backup?
- Who is the pediatric doctor, and is it possible to get to know each other?
- What kind of fetal monitoring does the hospital require?
- Any advice on what to pack in my hospital bag?
