THis may be a dumb question...hmm

but do you only go see your OB when you're due for your specific pregnancy check ups..or do you go also whenever you have a problem, or do you go to your reg doctor for that?

  • When I was pregnant I went for my regular pregnancy check ups. If something was wrong I would call my regular doc and depending on what it was they would sometimes have me call my OB.

  • When pregnant you go to the OB for everything. I went for check ups or when I got sick or had an issue.

  • I've never heard of going to an OB just b/c I was sick. I also have a regular doctor that takes care of everything non-pregnacy related

  • I went to my obgyn for regular check up & pregnancy related problem/issue appointments...and my family doctor for being sick w/ a cold. You shouldn't go to the obgyn when your sick and expose other pregnant mothers to your cold- when you can just as easily go to your regular family doc.

  • ob gyns are for gynocological visits only (including breast health)
    if you catch a cold or break your foot you go to a GP or an orthoped
    you wouldn't ask your podiatrist to chec k your vag would you? lol
