The first visit to the obstetrician is to confirm the pregnancy. This is usually done by a blood test to check for HCG levels, the same hormone which also caused a positive urine pregnancy test. Ultrasound is also done to look for gestation sac to confirm the pregnancy.

Some women are not very comfortable getting ultrasound examination done during Pregnancy. They have a feeling that it may hurt their baby. In fact it is the other way round, by getting timely ultrasound examination done you can identify any problems with the baby and try to mitigate it.
