Re: How often do you see your doctor or midwife?

I have had 4 other babies and this has never been an issue before. I have been this same size my entire adult life. In fact I switched to this provider hoping for less intervention.
I wouldn't mind the extra visits and would tolerate them for less intervention and/or a caregiver I loved.... however that COMBINED w.the extra tests seems a bit over the top. Sounds almost like they are treating you as high risk. If that's the case now, I can't imagine their attitude will bode well for you, wanting minimal intervention.
