Prenatal Care Passaic

Newly pregnant in Passaic? 

A visit to a medical professional is essential if you suspect that you may be pregnant. While at home tests are accurate indicators of pregnancy, the next step is a conversation with your doctor! Your first visit regarding prenatal care at Ahkami Medical Group will include the following elements: 

  • A comprehensive medical history that details your gynecological history, past pregnancies, personal and family health history, medication use and lifestyle. 
  • A comprehensive physical examination: to determine BMI, blood pressure, heart and breathing rates, as well as an examination of your vagina where changes in the cervix and size of the uterus help us determine the stage of your pregnancy. 
  • Blood tests to determine your Rh status, measure hemoglobin and detect exposure to certain infections. 
  • Screening tests for fetal abnormalities

Prenatal care in Passaic should begin as soon as you are pregnant. 

Being pregnant is no small thing for your body and we want to make sure you have all the facts in hand to feel confident going forward. You can expect to leave with a tentative due date, a wealth of information regarding changes in your body, normal and abnormal discomforts of pregnancy and other important information regarding the upcoming months.

first trimester pregnancy in Passaic

The first trimester of pregnancy brings an onslaught of changes to a woman's body

A missed period is the first sign of pregnancy, but don't be surprised if you see a little bleeding; this is a natural occurrence as the fertilized egg implants itself into the uterus. Other early symptoms of pregnancy include: 

  • Fatigue: a natural occurrence as your body attempts to get used to pregnant life. Expect energy to return during the second trimester of pregnancy 
  • Morning sickness: caused by the tumult of pregnancy hormones, this nausea and vomiting during the first few months of pregnancy is very common and can occur at any time of day. 
  • An expanding waistline: as the baby and uterus begin to grow, expect to see your waistline follow. 
  • Moodiness: also tied with pregnancy hormones, mood can be less than stable during pregnancy. 
  • Feeling lightheaded: due to the extra blood production involved in supporting a child. 
  • Frequent urination: the growth of your uterus creates a compression on your bladder 
  • Breast changes: breasts may feel tender or swollen. 
  • Vaginal changes: the lining of the vagina becomes thicker. A thin, whitish discharge is considered normal during pregnancy, as is mild bleeding or spotting; however, please call us if you experience vaginal bleeding during your pregnancy. If you experience vaginal bleeding that is severe or painful, go to the emergency room. 
  • Skin changes: increased blood circulation creates a glow in your skin.
