Re: every two weeks starting at 21 weeks !!!!

i have heard that some drs consider you high risk if you don't have prenatal care in the first trimester, maybe that has to do with it combined with being csection #6? i dont know really, that sure is alot of apts!

I think it's for insurance billing. Do you have insurance or are you paying out of pocket? Either way they do it by "package" so the whole pregnancy is a package deal and they usually won't break it down any other way. So he has to see you every two weeks if he wants to do things "right" by the package. It sounds like that to me and frankly I'd personally refuse... that is ridiculous!

Re: every two weeks starting at 21 weeks !!!!

yikes...that seems like a bit much if you are feeling/doing ok. I mean what is he checking at this appts? If it's just weight and blood pressure....i would think it's an insurance thing. My midwife doesn't want to see me every 2 weeks until like 32 or 32 weeks. Now i am nervous if that is normal...ha ha. Good luck!!!

IDK about the every 2 weeks thing, but I know you can measure big depending on baby's position and amount of fluid, etc, so it is normal to measure up to 2 weeks over/under your gestation period and you are only 1 over that. There are a lot of factors that can make you measure big on visit and not the next. . . HTHs

I have been seeing my ob since about 20 weeks every other week, but not because it was scheduled, every other week or so SOMETHING comes up that I have to call, and they always make me go in. Hugs, I bet this doc just wants to make sure that your c-section scars don't hinder the pregnancy and in case you have a question during the month you know you will be going in twice. or was your weight out of wack from "normal" for you? Could be lots of things, call and ask.
