Hi...just curious how often you are all seeing your Doctors and Midwifes during the final stretch. I have gone from every 4 weeks to every 3 weeks...wondering if this is OK??? Should I be seeing the doctor more during these final weeks?

With both my over 40 babies, I saw the doc every two weeks the entire pregnancy and then every week after week 32.

I went once a month the entire pregnancy up until the last 2 months. Then I went every 2 weeks for a month, then every week until delivery. This was with ALL my kids (21 yrs, 19 yrs, 13 yrs and my 3 month old). That just must be the norm here in Ohio. They did not treat me any different than anyone else there because of my age. They said it was considered a "normal" pregnancy...unless I started having complications such as swelling or HBP...which could happen to anyone pregnant no matter what the age. But, if it was to happen...then they would consider me high risk.

Hi! THanks for the responses. I called my doctor's office and told them that I was only scheduled to come in every 3 weeks until delivery and they said that was a BIG mistake on the schedulers part...so now they have me coming every week (I am a day shy of 36 weeks) until I deliver. Originally I was only going to see the doc one more time before delivery!
