So, tomorrow I will be 36 weeks and a day... I have a dr. appt. and I am not sure what to expect at this checkup.... Plz all mommies that have already gone to theirs, give me some advice... I would greatly appreciate it, all others plz dis-regard. Thank you
I know at 35 weeks and on they check ur cervix.
if u havent had the pre labor testing done down there yet then that too.....sorry i dont remember what the exact test is called. lol
I started getting checked at 36wks. Other than that it was the same.
Quoting Carson's my world:
Did you already have your GBS swab? If not, probably at that appt. I never got checked til week 39, every doctor is different.
I'm 36.5 weeks with twins, and they QUIT checking my cervix at 34 weeks. lol. I had it checked biweekly from 24 weeks until 32 week, then weekly from 32 to 34 weeks.
I am now getting weekly nonstress tests at the hospital. My ob doesn't have a monitor for twins, so I get them done there.
Every week I have one ob appointment where they check blood pressure, urine, and weight, a nonstress test where they make sure the babies heart rates go up when they move, and an ultrasound where they look at babies blood flow, kidneys, stomach etc. Every 2 weeks they check the twin boys sizes with the ultrasound to make sure they are both still growing.
I have a c-section planned for March 15th when I will be 38 weeks.
