Appointment Spacing?

Does anyone remember when you start having MW or OB appointments every 2 weeks? Is it at 30 weeks? And then the appointments every week start at 37 weeks or is it sooner? You'd think I know these things by now but I just can't remember.

I've gotta start planning for someone to cover my business while I'm traveling to MW appts. that are far away. I seriously can't believe how fast this pregnancy is flying by that I'm already planning for the end. Today I booked someone to come in and help me at work for 6 weeks after the birth. I literally just put away DS2's 3-6 month clothing & will have to pull that back out for #3 in the blink of an eye. Luckily all we have to do to prepare for #3 is wash the carseat cover (that is still in use), start freezing some of our meals for after baby, and pick out some names (haven't even started this process) but I'm still starting to feel a little unready for this whole thing to go down so soon. If you've read this entire last paragraph then thanks for listening to my momentary panic Smile

I will start every 2 weeks at 28 weeks. Every week at 34.

I'm pretty sure that I will start going every 2 weeks after my 28 week and then go every week at 36 or 37 weeks.

Same for me! I can't believe it's coming up so soon.

I agree with the others...I think the 2 week appts start in 3rd trimester and at around 36 weeks or so is every week. Might be 38 weeks but I think it may also depend on the OB. I know with DD2 I went to one or two every week appt (she was born about 2 1/2 weeks early from their EDD) and then with DD1 I swear my every week appt didn't start until 38 weeks (she was born exactly on my EDD).

I need to start writing qs down for my OB lol. I can't believe how fast this whole process went. I need to start planning dinners as well. I dunno when I'd start freezing them though since DD2 came so early and DD1 came right on time. Although I do suspect this one will show early too since he is measuring big. Maybe mid March...hmm...

I have very little to do since we don't have a room for him yet. I wish I could have a dresser or something for his clothes instead of leaving them sitting in a tub ha. It's be easier to find clothes! I did find his outfit to get his first pics in so I'm excited!

Ha ha sorry, didn't mean to ramble on like that.

I think though after my glucose testing (which is about 28 weeks) I will start going every two weeks. Wow! So soon!!!

I think right around 28-30 weeks is when the 2 weeks start.

I have been going every 2 weeks from the beginning with being high risk. I am suppose to start going weekly at the begging of my 3rd trimester.
