Doctor/midwife visits?

My twin pregnancy was so different so I have no idea what is the norm for docs visits. At what point in the pregnancy do you see your doctor more than once a month? I know this may be different depending on your doctor/midwife and pregnancy circumstances, but just curious as to what is the norm. 17 years ago I saw my doctor once a month until the last four weeks and then I went every week until my due date...

Where I go you don't see the doctor every week till you are 36 weeks. Otherwise I am seen every 4-5 weeks.

Off topic... but do you like this? Our birth center (CNMs) have just started offering this and it sounds interesting.


Back on topic... I go monthly until 32 weeks I think. Maybe 28? And then every other week until 36, then weekly.

At my brith center it is once a month until 28 weeks. Then twice a month from 28-36 weeks. At 36 weeks it changes to once a week.

Re: Doctor/midwife visits?

Most places do once every 4-5 weeks during the 1st and 2nd trimester. Then at 28weeks (3rd trimester) it switches to every 2 weeks. At 36 weeks it's weekly till delivery

This has been my experience, and both the OB and MW (different pregnancies) did this schedule.
