Wait, 2 visits a week, or a visit every 2 weeks? Are you a high risk?
I'd definitely get clarification. 2 visits a week seems extreme. I'm a FTM, but my OB said the standard was a visit every 2 weeks starting at 30 weeks, and then ONCE every week starting at 36 weeks (I think).

Up until 32 weeks it is monthly for me, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks and then weekly after that. I have no idea why twice a week appts at that stage would be needed unless you are high risk.

I would get clarification, two appts a week seems a bit much if you are having a normal pregnancy. However, maybe it is just that one week? Is there a special test they want to run?
I start seeing my OB every other week after Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to it because it means that the end is in sight, lol :D
TTC #3 starting November 2013
mrsjjohnson2010:I must be high risk I guess? age, weight, and blood pressure. My pressure was a little high last visit. Thanks ladies!
I would ask for clarification. 2 visits a week is excessive unless there is a specific problem they want to monitor. I had high BP last time and had one visit a week at 30 weeks instead of every 2 weeks to monitor BP, but not two a week.
I think it's pretty much standard procedure everywhere. You have monthly visits until 30-ish weeks, then you go every 2 weeks, then every week once you hit 36 weeks.
It's only normal to do closer monitoring as you get closer to your due date.
