Questions, questions and more questions...

Being first time parents is an awesome experience but its also nerve wrecking. Everything is new and like any other parent, hubby and I had tons of questions to ask our doctor. I even made a list of all the questions to ask on my first appointment after we came to know that I am pregnant. My doctor started laughing when she had seen a long list, complete with bullet points.
Since I have another appointment this evening (which means another list of questions), I thought I will write down what I asked her in my first appointment.

  1. How exactly are trimesters calculated?
  2. When will I be referred to OBGYN?
  3. What tests would I be referred to in first trimesters?
  4. What is a carrier screening and will I be given one?
  5. Is there any cheese or any particular meat/fish I should avoid?
  6. How to avoid gestational diabetes?
  7. What should I do if I find any spotting?
  8. What is considered a reasonable amount of exercise?
  9. When is the right time to start prenatal-yoga?
  10. What should my weight chart be like?
  11. Should my foot wear be flat?
  12. Often I get uncomfortable but manageable stomach pain. Is this normal?
  13. What is the best time to have prenatal vitamins and is the dosage 2 tabs per day?
  14. Is there a way to combat extreme fatigue?
  15. Is it ok to use alcohol-based mouth wash?

P.S: Today hubby made orange juice for me.
