Pregnancy Checkups

You will go to checkups throughout your pregnancy.  This will help assure you and your baby are staying healthy and things are going well.  This is also a good time to ask your doctor questions.

Here are some questions you might ask at a checkup.

"I am having a bit of back pain, any recommendations?"
"How is my baby doing?"
"What should I be eating?"
"Is there anything I should not be eating?"
"Can I fly on the airplane?"
"Is it ok to exercise?"
"Can I still take my medication?"

Here are some questions your doctor might ask you during your checkup.

"How are things going?"
"Are you getting any sleep?"
"Are you in any pain?"
"How is your appetite?"
"Do you want to know the sex of your baby?"

Here are some ways you can answer.  Providing as much information will allow the doctor to help you.

"I'm having a lot of morning sickness and I can't hold anything down."
"I feel tired all the time."
"I get a lot of heart burn.  It is very uncomfortable and I can't eat well."
"I am hungry all the time.  I am eating so much.  Is it okay to eat so much?"
