  • every 4 weeks untill you get further along some where around 30wks i think you start going every two weeks and then at around 35 weeks its once a week till your baby is born.

  • When you go into the doctor, the doctor should be telling you (at the end of your visit) when they expect you back, and you should be making the appointment before you leave.

    But yes, the above ladies are correct, it is once a month until about 34 weeks, then its every 2 weeks, then at around 36 or 37 weeks it is once a week.

  • i was going every 4 weeks until now. my next appointment is 3weeks. which works out because its right after the holiday. after that i am not sure. i am 27 weeks now so i am wondering if it would change to every 2 weeks after this next visit. well i will find out. he told me on my last visit in november that i would be getting closer appointment dates. its very important to be on top of that and make sure u go. do whatever it takes to take of yourself and the baby.
