how they schedule appts
So everyone that had your first appt, when is your next one scheduled for?

I haven't had my first yet (it's next Tuesday) and I'm already excited about when my second will be. LOL Do they schedule them every 4 weeks?

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.

Yep- I go next Tuesday, and then I'm guessing my next appt will be 4 weeks after that! Then down to every two, then every week for the last four weeks or so! :)

My next one isn't until the 18th. I think it is every 4 until 30, then every 2 until 36, then every week until delivery.

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).

Re: how they schedule appts
Last pg I didn't go as much as the ob wanted. I went every 6-8 weeks, then 32 wks, 36 wks, 38 wks & 40 wks. My pregnancy was a healthy normal one so no need to go monthly or more.

As for this pregnancy, not sure yet. My 1st appointment is late next week (8 wks), I might have to reschedule thought :(

Re: how they schedule appts
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.
