Usually every 4 weeks. Then it'll go to every 2 weeks, then every week. But it can also depend on provider and how your pregnancy is going for when your appointments will be scheduled. Low risk, it usually goes like I just stated.
My first apt is this week with the nurse just to do paperwork, blood work and stuff like that from what I understand. I have an apt 2 weeks later with the Dr and that will be my first dr apt so probably will be every 4 weeks after that one unless he labels me as high risk from prior health conditions then it can be more.
I'm sure it depends on your provider. But for me I'll have appointments once a month until the 28th week, every two weeks until the 36th week, and then weekly until labour begins. One of the 36+ week appointments can be at my own home. Awesome. Then they come to my home on days 1, 3, 5 and 7-10 for a baby checkup. Then I see them at the clinic weeks 2, 4 and 6.
My 2nd u/s was mostly to confirm the difference in gestational age from where they thought I would be based off LMP at my 6.5 week u/s. My 3rd u/s will be in 4 weeks at 12.5 weeks. I have been referred to a perinatologist, and will most likely be visiting them in 2 weeks (before our honeymoon), or in 4 weeks (after our honeymoon).
There is 5 weeks between my last appt and my next appt. Which is fine with me...I probably wont go to my appts every month. My last appt was just a weight check, flu shot and we did a quick peek at the baby...the only reason I went was for the ultrasound ..otherwise there was no reason to go.
