When does your OB start these?  I forgot from last time but am thinking it's around 28 weeks.

Good question! I know I'm 26 weeks now and mine are still every 4 weeks. I believe I'll go down to every 3 weeks before I get to every 2... I didn't start having 1x a week appointments until I was full term, that I remember.

Hi Caryn!

I'm not sure if every doctor is different or what, since I'm still with the same practice as I was with DD #1, I'm still on the same schedule. It's every 4 weeks until my 28 week appt, then I go down to every 3 weeks for 2 appts. So, 31w and 34w, then down to every 2 weeks for 3 appts, I think, so like 36w, 38w, and then 40ws, then they do an every week appt until baby is born. Like I said, every dr might be a little different, but they're still monitoring us more closely once we hit that 3T!!!!

Can't believe we're approaching 3T, so exciting!  

I called yesterday to see if the surgery schedule is out for July yet (it is!) and also asked about this.  Apparently it's every 4 weeks until 28 weeks, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks and then every week until delivery.  Luckily their office is very close =)
