How often should I see my doctor during pregnancy?

Your doctor will give you a schedule of all the doctor’s visits you should have while pregnant. As your pregnancy progresses, you’ll see the doctor more often. Most experts suggest you see your doctor:

  • about once each month for the first six months of pregnancy
  • every two weeks for the seventh and eight month of pregnancy
  • every week until the baby is born

If you are over 35 or your pregnancy is high risk because of health problems (like diabetes or high blood pressure), you’ll probably see your doctor more often.
