Going to the doctor when you're pregnant can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. You're getting to hear the baby's heartbeat and all, but you're concerned about this twitch you're feeling, or whatever the case may be. Doctor's visits become quite familiarized after a while, but if this is your first time going through this, read these 7 things you need to remember when going to your OB doctor.
