At 1st visit ur care giver will advice some tests, 1st ultrasonography, take ur weight, blood pressure, and other parameters, do risk categorisation ( see weather u have any high risk factor) and
At second visit other ultrasonography a detailed one known as anomaly scan to see for any growth defects in baby.
At 28 weeks a routine check up, tests and growth scan.
At 36 weeks assessment for the timing and mode of delivery.
If u have any of these warning symptoms while at home report to hospital or your caregiver

Eat healthy, exercise and enjoy the journey of pregnancy
