Typical Ob Appointment Schedule?

What's the schedule for prenatal appointments throughout my pregnancy?

Over the course of your pregnancy, you might start to feel like you live at your doctor’s office... and that’s a good thing. Studies show that mothers who visit their doctors regularly during pregnancy deliver much healthier babies on average. Scheduled doctor visits will of course vary depending on your physician and your own physical state, but these general guidelines should give you an idea of what to expect:

4 to 28 weeks
One visit per month (every four weeks)

28 to 36 weeks
Two visits per month (every two to three weeks)

36 weeks to delivery
One visit per week
