When do you start going to the doctor every 2 weeks?
So I still haven't started the every 2 weeks visits. My next visit is on march 18th and I'll be 29 and half weeks. When do you think my doctor will start me up every 2 weeks?? (he hasn't mentioned anything to me yet)
and why do they even do that?? why does a women need to go every 2 weeks?
I keep reading online everywhere that a doctor would start the every 2 weeks visits from 27th week, but that doesn't seem to be the case with me.
I go every two weeks starting about 28 wks, and every weeks starting at 36. Is it overkil? For most people, yes, yet if they manage to catch something early in just a few pregnant woman that saves their baby...it's worth it. My doc checks growth, listens to HB, checks urine, weight, will do a glucose test about 30 weeks, will do the group-b swab test at 37wks, for me ill get some ultrasounds to check fluid (from earlier issues) and cervix checks towards the end if I want. They apts go quick, and are also great if I have questions.
