pointless doctor check ups

I feel like my monthly check up is virtually pointless. I have learned more from this app and google than my ob/gyn office. Literally I'm in and out within 20 mins. My dr offers no information. She walks in, instructs me to lean back on the table. Puts the doplar on my belly, sits me back up and says she will see me in 4 weeks. Everything I ask she says "that's normal" and walks out. 
I'm a first time mom and it'd be nice if she could help me anticipate what's in the coming weeks as far as symptoms, what's abnormal and what will be done at next appt. luckily I have the internet to fall back on.
