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've been on the "every 2 week" appointments since my 18th week... and I'm not really sure bc the baby has been healthy and I haven't had any issues.

But I do hsve a lapband, so that might be the reason for me being every 2 weeks.

I think it's about 32 weeks here when you start going 2 weekly. But I could be wrong.

In New Zealand it's standard practice for your midwife to see you every 4 weeks until 28 weeks, then every 2 weeks, and then every week from 36 weeks til birth. x

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.

I'll start after my 28 week appt. My OB actually wanted to start the 2 week thing last month but I wanted to wait, so we've agreed to start after 28 weeks.

Since I've had a normal and easy pregnancy so far, my OB said he won't switch me to two weeks until I'm 34 weeks, unless I want to come in more often. Ask your provider!
