Who else has started their biweekly prenatal appointments?

I had an unexpected visit at 26 weeks (well they expected it, I didn't realize I was on every 2 weeks lol) and then one this Tuesday! Scary, so close!

I go one last time June 12th (4 weeks) and then I start every 2 weeks. I'm starting to get a little nervous!

I've been on every 2 weeks since the beginning. I bounce back and forth from my regular doctor (boring visits) to my high risk doctor where I get lots of pictures

I'm weird... I like it when visits get closer together. I love seeing my midwife! I think I have one more 4 week visit after Monday's appointment and then go to every 2 weeks

I had an appointment at 26 weeks, the glucose test appointment at 28 weeks, and my next apt will be this Thursday.. 30 weeks.. so, guess they started them after 26 weeks for me. They feel so close together like I might not need that many but glad to get the extra checks on the baby. I cant believe its so close.

I started as of my last appointment as well. He was going to do one more 3 week but then he remembered I need my Rhogam shot next week so we are just starting them now. That's fine but I'm not looking forward to when my twice weekly NSTs start, that is kind of a pain (and stressful lol) Not sure when they are starting this time, i think he said 32 weeks?

I might be the only one who hasn't started and won't! My last appointment was last week and when I talked to my doctor about rescheduling I said every two weeks now right and she said it's not necessary so I'm not scheduled until June 11th! She told me they would start every 2 weeks once I'm around 32 weeks... I guess because I haven't had any issues besides my leg. I guess that's good news lol

At my last check up he said come back in 3 weeks, but I've switched appointment days from Saturdays to Tuesdays so it'll actually be 2 1/2 weeks. I'll be 30 weeks then so I'm guessing I'll be back 2 weeks after that.
I like them close together, it makes the time seem to go quicker

I don't do 2 week appointments. I saw the MW on Friday and she said "see you in two weeks" and we discussed not needing them so we have settled on every 4 weeks until 36 weeks, then I will do a 38w appointment and a 40 week appt. Then once a week.

Me. My last appt was 2 weeks after the one before that, then my next appt is next wed at 29 weeks. I'm assuming ill go again at 31 weeks then start weekly again at 32 weeks due to the Icp and them doing nsts, but not 100% sure yet. I've seen some women start nsts at 32 weeks, but o twice a week! (That'll be fun with 3 kids and trying to find a sitter!)

The midwives I'm seeing now have a pretty different schedule. I've gone every six weeks up until my last appt at 26 weeks, so I've only had 4 appointments. Next appt is 4.5 weeks at 30.5 weeks, then we'll do every three weeks at 33 and 36. After that we'll do every 10 days or so until 40 weeks. I think I'd be impatient for the appointments if it was my first, but I've been glad for the extra spacing and fewer appointments. They are very available for questions in between appointments as I've had them.
