Friday I had a doc appointment. Did the whole sugar test thing and my I say that was awfull. They didn't have the orange flavor stuff this time it was fruit punch. I swear it was like drinking cough syrup. Anyways my appointment went great. Lost more weight...kind of surprised at that one but don't mind. Doc wasn't worried. I am however measuring 4 weeks ahead still. But baby was nice and active for the doc. So all is good.

Anyways my questions is my doc wants me to start coming every two weeks already?? Does this seem early?? I won't be 26 weeks until Wednesday so I just thought it felt early then my last two. But given my last one was 8 years ago I might not have the best of memory. So I was wondering when everyone else is starting to go every two weeks?? I also was thinking maybe its because I am measuring big and they are worried about the size of the baby since my last one was so big. But who knows, I didn't get a chance to ask because he got called to a delivery. So I guess I go back it two weeks and will ask then.

I start going every two weeks starting next thursday. So I will be 30 weeks. I think that does seem a little early. I guess every doc is different.

I canít wait to be every 2 weeks, I think it would make the days go by much quicker. Iíll be 26 weeks at me next appt and I have a feeling Iíll be every 2 weeks after that (keeping fingers crossed) because if they give me 4 weeks, it means Iíll be 30 weeks and I think you are supposed to start every 2 weeks after you turn 28 weeks.

Yours might be because you are measuring 4 weeks ahead so which means you are actually 30 weeks by your measurements. Glad your appt went well, 2 weeks is around the corner, I hope the next appt goes well also.

I start going every 2 weeks after my next appt, which will put me right at around 28 weeks.

26 weeks seems very early to start going every two weeks to me but then I read everyone else's posts and well I guess it all depends on your doctor.

I wonder if they are thinking you might go earlier because you're measuring 4 weeks ahead so they are wanting to watch you a little closer? IDK. Huh.

I personally hate going in every 2 weeks. I love my doc but well they do the same thing every time you go in. I will ask to only start the once every two week visits when I am 32+ weeks. I always ask and they always compromise with me. hehe. I've been going to the same place for like 10 years and they are all awesome there.

It seems early to me. I think I was probably around 24 weeks with DS when they changed it to 3 weeks then it was 2 weeks from 33 or so until 37 and then it was every week.

I just saw my OB today, and my next appt is in 4 weeks, so I'll be 31 weeks then, and after that I'll be going every 2 weeks.

Geez I guess it is a little early. I know he is planning on me going early either on my own or him inducing me because of my odds of having a large baby. But it just seems weird. Maybe he is just going off of what I measure instead of what I really am. Oh well like faith2006 said it will make time go alot faster.

I start going every 2 weeks around 32 weeks. I also have weekly NST's at the hospital starting at 32 weeks because of my blood pressure.
