  • you only need to be seen once a month. its normal. after that at 30 weeks it will be every 2 weeks then at the last month it is every week. that is how it is for me at least and how ive always known it to be.

  • I am only seen once a month for now, once i get to 28 weeks i will be seen every 2 weeks(2 a month). I think that is the normal pattern the Dr.s use.

  • sorry but I think you have a typo...are you 2 weeks?
    generally unless you are high risk, doctors don't rush to get you in until 12 weeks since all they can do until then is have you pee in a cup and measure your BP. at 12 weeks is when they can listen to the heartbeat and actually measure things.

    if it's supposed to say 20 weeks instead of 2o weeks, yes once a month is normal until the 3rd trimester.

  • I was told once a month until 26 weeks, then every 2 weeks until 34 weeks then once a week unless your high risk and there is a problem

  • Its just once a month till your towards the end unless something major is wrong or your high risk. I know that the appointments are so far apart and you mind goes in crazy directions wondering if everything is alright. Its a long wait between appointments in my eyes. good luck

  • be grateful sweetie I have to be seen almost every week at 22 weeks because of high risk.
