About Prenatal Visits

Your first prenatal visit should be scheduled as soon as you think you are pregnant. As the pregnancy progresses, prenatal checkups will happen more regularly and may include special tests.

A typical schedule for prenatal checkups is:

  • Between Weeks 4-28. You’ll have an appointment once a month.
  • Between Weeks 28-36. You’ll start having appointments twice a month.
  • After week 36. You’ll have weekly appointments.

If your pregnancy is high-risk, which depends on factors like the patient’s age, weight, and other health problems or concerns, your OBGYN may recommend more frequent prenatal visits to closely monitor your pregnancy.

What to Expect During Your Prenatal Visit

During a prenatal checkup, your OBGYN may:

  • Get a urine sample
  • Review medical history
  • Check blood pressure, weight, and height
  • Check stress level and lifestyle habits
  • Perform blood tests
  • Check the fetal heart rate
  • Feel and measure the patient’s abdomen
  • Answer any questions or concerns the patient has

Other tests may be done to test to detect signs of possible health problems including infection, birth defects, gestational diabetes, or fetal distress.

Contact our office to schedule a prenatal checkup or your first prenatal appointment if you think you are pregnant.
