    Stomach/Uterus. Measuring the stomach to check its inline with the growth norms and ultrasound to actually look/measure the baby obviously. Sometimes the blood for stuff like gestational diabetes or anaemia or pre-eclampsia.

    Blood pressure and urine protein, both of which could indicate pre-eclampsia if elevated.
