Your first Obstetrics (OB) visit will be with a nurse prior to your 8th week of pregnancy. This visit can either be conducted in the office, or over the telephone if you would like to save yourself a trip to the office as this appointment will not include a physical exam, ultrasound, or any fetal heart monitoring.
