Cumming Pregnancy Tests

If you live in Cumming or the surrounding areas and suspect that you are pregnant, schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test with North Pointe OB/GYN Associates.  If you are earlier than eight weeks, you will have a “Confirmation of Pregnancy” visit.  During this visit, we will confirm your pregnancy and ask you some general health questions.  This is an excellent opportunity to discuss what medications you are taking and any health concerns that may impact the pregnancy.  If you have not started taking prenatal vitamins before getting pregnant, your doctor or Certified Nurse-Midwife will recommend one to you.

Atlanta Confirmation of Pregnancy

If you have had your “Confirmation of Pregnancy” visit or suspect you are eight weeks pregnant or more, we will schedule you for an “OB Workup.”  During this visit to North Pointe OB/GYN Associates, there are several things to expect:

•  New patients and returning patients will have several forms to fill out upon
    arrival.  Prior to your visit, you can go to the “Patient Forms” section of our
    website and click on the forms that apply to you, fill them out and bring them to
    your visit.  This will save time at check-in.

•  A member of the medical staff will check your weight, blood pressure, and ask you
    to leave a urine sample labeled with your name on it (which will happen before
    every visit to test for glucose and protein).

•  Pelvic exam to include Pap smear and routine cervical cultures

•  Full medical exam to include breast exam

•  Routine blood tests are taken to determine blood type, Rh factor and a complete
    blood count to make sure values are normal.

•  You will also have tests to determine your immunity to German measles (Rubella)
    and for sexually transmitted diseases (Syphilis, Gonorrhea/Chlamydia, HIV and
    Hepatitis).

•  If you are far enough along in your pregnancy at this visit or within a week of this
    visit, you may get to hear your baby’s heartbeat (not usually before 10-12 weeks).

•  A “dating ultrasound” will be performed either at this visit or within a week of this
    visit (ultrasound times vary).  This is an important factor in determining your
    official due date.

•  Your doctor or midwife will discuss many things with you at this first visit to
    include:  diet and exercise, family, medical, Obstetrical, and sexual history; what to
    expect related to future testing such as routine prenatal and optional genetic
    testing and recommended weight gain in pregnancy.

•  Your doctor or midwife will also answer any questions you might have and
    discuss what will happen in the next few visits to the office.  It is always a good
    idea to write down a list of your questions to make sure all are addressed.

First OB Visit After Pregnancy Confirmation

The first OB visit after pregnancy confirmation is usually the longest OB visit during your entire pregnancy.  It can be exciting, scary or just result in information overload.  You will also be given a pregnancy packet with an approved medication list, samples of prenatal vitamins and other pregnancy information for you to review.  Don’t worry, you can review all of the information at home and ask questions during your next visit. 

Also remember that even if you have never been a patient in this office and you are experiencing complications such as bleeding, severe nausea and vomiting or anything else medically concerning prior to your scheduled visit, please do not hesitate to contact our Cumming Pregnancy Tests Specialists.  Consider yourself part of our North Pointe OB/GYN Associates family.
