Health Tip: Questions to Ask Your Doctor When You're Pregnant

(HealthDay News) — When you head to the doctor for your first prenatal visit after learning that you're pregnant, you should prepare a list of questions.

The American Pregnancy Association offers this list of topics for discussion:

  • Is there a phone number or nurse line that I can call when I have questions?
  • Who should I call if I start bleeding or cramping?
  • What should I consider an emergency?
  • Now that I'm pregnant, do I need to make changes to my nutrition, exercise routine and sexual activity?
  • How often will I have prenatal visits?
