Of course, if I ever felt something was off, I wouldn't hesitate to call and go in sooner. This time around I told my m/w I only wanted to come in every 6 weeks (only 12 right now) and she said that was fine.
This is my second and I am this way. I hate prenatal appt. I feel like driving 45 min and getting a hb and bp check and driving 45 min back home is annoying.

With my son, the hospital was severely onder staffed and at 38 weeks, I couldn't get an apt at 39 weeks with any doctor. I think I went 8 weeks without seeing a dr at all( 16 to 24 weeks) because of understaffing. Otherwise I went monthly.

When I got to this dr(at a civilian hospital) I thought that often sounded ridiculous until I read this thread... Oops.
