In brief: A good relationship!
Your first visit will consist of a complete history, physical exam, blood work and often an ultrasound.
Then depending on your particulars the visits usually are spaced at monthly intervals until the last two months. These visits are usually "belly checks" where the heart rate is assessed and your weight and BP is measured. This is the best time to have your questions answred. Good luck!

In brief: Standard OB appts.
Your OB appointments should include a urine test, fetal heart rate monitoring, a measurement of your belly, your weight and blood pressure.
These are the standards items monitored throughout your pregnancy. Your OB may request more tests as your pregnancy progresses if necessary.
