    Default Is this normal? RE: APPOINTMENTS..

    When i was preggo with my son, i saw my OB every 4 weeks, then every 2 weeks after 28 weeks then after 36 weeks every week..

    This pregnancy, im having midwifes look after my care at the Sunshine Hospital.. and i went there on the 16th Of November, and they booked me in for another appointment on the 11th Janurary 2006??

    Hi Mizzsocial
    I am the same as your first pregnancy - I see my doc every 4 weeks then every 2 weeks from 28 weeks and then every week from 36 - But there are other people i know that hardly ever go to the doc - I'm sure if they needed to see you more they would let you know. Hope you have a H&H

    Hi
    seeing you are only at 12 weeks, I don't really see it being a problem, unless there is actually a problem

    We went from 12w to 20w no drama. Next appt is only a 3.5week gap due to xmas and holidays and stuff

    Are you doing share care with your GP and Midwife or Midwife only. I have a pretty big gap between midwife visits like you but I also see a GP every month so I figured that is why the there was such a big gap. I would have thought that you should be seeing someone at least once a month in the first 8 months.

    I'm going through my GP and although had the first at 6 then the next at 10weeks I'm not having another until 16weeks - how much this has to do with Xmas I don't know cause otherwise it would be 2.5 weeks since my last or 5 weeks anyway. He seemed to think everything was going fine, it was my second so I knew what to look out for but if any hassles let him know and he'll fit me in before.

    I've had big gaps all the way. I am not seeing the midwives weekly now either. I think if you have normal blood pressure and all seems ok, they will let you go longer. I much prefer to not have to go in all the time. My last appointment was 38 weeks and I hope I dont get to my next one at 40 weeks!!
    In the beginning I had huge gaps as well, so don't worry xxo
