Visits During Pregnancy

Routine prenatal care consists of once monthly visits until your 28nd week of pregnancy.  At that point you will be seen every two weeks.  You will be seen once weekly for the last month of your pregnancy.  We will collect a urine sample at each office visit; your weight gain and blood pressure will be monitored through the pregnancy.  Fetal heart tones can be heard in the office after the 12 week of pregnancy.  Pelvic exams can be expected during the last month of your pregnancy.
