You took a home pregnancy test 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 an HCG blood test. HCG is a hormone produced in the body during pregnancy and helps determine the gestational age of the pregnancy. 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. Depending on the result, you may be asked to repeat the HCG blood test. Otherwise, our nurse will schedule an appointment for your first ultrasound in our office at approximately 8 weeks.
- In the first trimester of pregnancy, a vaginal ultrasound is used to verify heartbeat, look for multiples and set a due date. In addition, an ultrasound in the first trimester can look for tubal pregnancy or miscarriage. At the end of this ultrasound, you may be scheduled for your first prenatal visit with our nurse.
- The first prenatal visit is a longer appointment (~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 your first trimester blood work. You will also be scheduled for your first trimester genetic screening (optional), as well as an appointment with a physician.

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Treatments (OMT)
OMT is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury.

Using OMT, a DO moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance such as:
