When did you start going to the OB every 2 weeks?


Just curious when you ladies started/start seeing the OB/midwife every 2 weeks as opposed to every 4. I'm dreading having to go every 2 weeks as I'll probably have to go alone due to OHs new job :/

When I started my 3rd trimester (27 weeks) and then the last month, its mandatory to see the OB every week until delivery.
I live in Canada though...so I'm not sure if it's the same for the UK?

I was told after my next appt. which I will be 28 weeks, I will start seeing my Dr. every 2 weeks, then I expect every week during the last month as well... but I'm actually kind of excited because that means I'm getting closer!!!

I was supposed to start going every two weeks after my 28 week appointment, but they pushed it back since I haven't had any complications. So now my next visit isn't until 32 weeks, and then I'm hoping they'll see me again at 34 and not push it back again.

I'd really rather go every two weeks at this point, I think it'd make time go by faster.

I was also told after my 28th week appt (which is my next one) that I will have to start going every other week. Then last month (I think?) it's once a week.

I already go every 2 weeks and have since about week 18 but I am of " geriatric maternal age".. I wish I was kidding when i saw that on my chart I about died You would think I was 90 lol
I'm considered a high risk pregnancy due to gestational diabetes, age and a few other factors but for those of us lucky to be " normal" risk its usually not until your 28th week
