limiting pre-natal visits

Quite a few health sites have said that pregnant women will have to schedule pre-natal appointments for at least every 4-6 weeks throughout the pregnancy up until week 36. Personally, this seems like too much for me, because that means that I'll have to take off from work regularly or leave early. My boss probably won't mind, but I will, because I'm really trying to be as incognito as possible about this pregnancy.
Plus, I love my lil' pod, but I don't think it's necessary to go to the doctor's that much. I can weigh myself at home, take my BP at the drugstore and keep records, and even let one of my diabetic family members test my blood sugar. Plus, I'm following good nutrition and exercise habits, and taking pre-natal vitamins so to me, there's no point in going to the doctor's every month.
Isn't there a way I can skirt around the frequent doctor visits?
