Obstetrics

You took a home pregnancy and it’s positive! Now what happens?? It can be an exciting and overwhelming time, especially for first-time mothers.  This is what you can expect from SOLO when you’re expecting!

 

  • When you call SOLO to let us know you have a positive home pregnancy test, you will be asked for the date of your last menstrual period. If you are a new patient, you will also be asked to provide additional information, such as your date of birth, insurance carrier and contact information.  Next, we will want to confirm your pregnancy with a serum quantitative HCG blood test. This test measures the specific level of HCG in the blood. HCG is a hormone produced in the body during pregnancy and helps determine the exact age of the fetus. The lab order can be mailed to your home or faxed to a lab of your choosing. The results from this test will be sent directly to our office. 


  • Our nurse will review the results of the HCG test and call you. If ordered by the physician, you may be asked to repeat the serum quantitative HCG blood test. Otherwise, our nurse will schedule an appointment for your first ultrasound at our Allentown office at approximately 8 weeks.


  •  In the first trimester of pregnancy, a vaginal ultrasound is used to verify heartbeat, look for multiples, and to set due dates. In addition an ultrasound in the first trimester can screen for some chromosomal abnormalities such as tubal pregnancy or potential for miscarriage. An additional dating ultrasound may be ordered if it is determined that you are not quite as far along as we expected. At the end of the 8 week ultrasound you will be scheduled for your First Prenatal Visit with our nurse.


  • The First Prenatal Visit is a longer appointment – approximately 45 minutes.  Feel free to prepare questions ahead of time, although we ask that you hold them until the end as many of them may be answered through the course of the appointment. Our nurse will review all the pertinent information about our practice, hospital affiliations and your prenatal care. You will receive a prenatal packet and a prescription for first trimester blood work. You will also be scheduled for your First Trimester Screening and Nuchal Translucency between 12-13 weeks (optional), as well as an appointment with a physician.



Throughout your pregnancy we will monitor your care for the following:


    • Management of routine and high-risk pregnancy
  • In-office ultrasound for fetal viability, fetal anatomy, and growth assessment
  • First and second trimester genetic risk assessment
  • Antepartum fetal surveillance
  • TOLAC (Trial of Labor after Cesarean)
  • Natural Labor and Delivery
  • Elective induction of labor after 39 weeks gestation
