When did your appointments start to increase?
 
I'm 24 weeks,This is my last monthly appointment (Aug 13th) and then i will start going every two weeks.I usually go get my ultrasound about every three weeks right before my appointment,but my OB said those will also start to increase along with my appointments next month.

Mine were always a month apart. I had so many miscarriages that they wanted to watch me VERY closely. It increased to 2 times a week about 7 months in to the pregnancy.

I only have peri, so my appointments have always been frequent - usually every 2 weeks, unless there was a scheduling conflict. Beginning around 32 weeks, the appts have been weekly. I have ultrasounds at every appointment.

At 18 weeks, I started going every other week. And at 26 weeks, I started to go weekly because that's when my pre-term labor began. There were a couple weeks during that time that I was actually seen twice.

I had an in-office ultrasound at every appt to monitor heartbeats and fluid levels. And I had big ultrasounds every 4 weeks from 20 weeks on to measure growth.

My ultrasound schedule hasn't been set. Sometimes I'd go 3 weeks and other times I'd go one. I was going 2-3 to check my cervix and development for a long time. At 26 weeks I started going every week because they were concerned about A's growth. She was fine though, so I went a month without one and now I'm back to once per week. I started going to my docs for appointments and NST's every week at about 24 weeks because of my contractions. I think she normally starts weekly appointments around 30-32 weeks.

we found out it was twins at 13 weeks and i went every two weeks at that point. around 24 weeks everything had been looking so well that i was told to come in 3 weeks and then i went again 3 weeks later. once i hit 30 weeks they told me to come weekly. all this is with the peri's office. the peri did an u/s everytime i went. at 30 weeks, i also started NSTs. i was seeing my OB on pretty much the same timeframe (there may have been a couple of appts where i just saw him once a month). i really only saw the OB at the same time b/c it was more convenient for me since he and the peri are on the same side of town within walking distance of each other. my OB did all the typical urine, weight, BP, measured fundal height and also listened to heartbeats.

Starting at 19 weeks I was seen every other week and had an u/s each time. I had a growth u/s every month.

GOsh... Reading all this I wonder how I am going to keep my job. Seems like lots of visits are in my future. I hope they schedule them late.
