    I last saw my wacky doc at 24wks, all was fine and he said they didn't need to see me again til i was 32 weeks...Is this normal??? seems a long gap to me. I can't remember if i went that long with any of the others. Anyway i have no cause for concern, just wanted to ask if i should have been seen around 28wks????

    Unless its your 1st they dont bother to much unless you have a problem.
    I had appointments with the MW every 4 weeks untill 30 weeks then it went to every 2 weeks then once a week.

    I dont understand why they changed it :roll:

    it mightve changed again?
    my girl friend had a baby in 2006 and she saw her mw every 2 weeks until 3rd tri, then every week until full-term, then twice a week!
    by the time i had my baby in 2007 i only saw my mw every month until 3rd tri, then every 2 weeks until full-term, then every week after that.
    idk thats just a possibility!

    I saw my midwife at 8 and 16 weeks. Don't see her again till 28 weeks.
    My next appointments after that will be 34, 36 and 38 weeks. And 41 and 42 weeks if I go overdue.

    If it were my first baby I'd have one extra appointment at 24 weeks, I think they're trying to save money. I'm sure I saw the midwife much more frequently when I had James in 2002

    I'm really glad I bought a doppler, otherwise I wouldn't hear the babys heartbeat for the first time untill 28 weeks!
