This will be our first hb, first two were born at our local midwives' birthing center.  I went in at 10w6d for the first appointment, and thinking about going in again sometime during my 16th week, then maybe 24th, 28th, 32nd, 34th, 36th and then every week after that?  It is a little up to me though.  Just wondering what other folks were doing,

I'm not having a homebirth, but since my midwife group has the same prenatal schedule whether you choose hospital or home, I'll chime in.

first appt around 10 wks
every 4 weeks up to 28 wks
every 2 weeks from 28 wks to 36 wks
once a week after 36 weeks

I think this is my schedule too

I'm doing every 3-4 weeks for now because my urine samples keep being problematic... UTI last time, high while blood cells this time.  She normally does every 4 wks though.

4 weeks until third trimester then two weeks and then weekly:) When you look at it this way do you realize we have three more monthly visits before we move along to two weeks!? WHOA things are moving right along!

Same as kyamo and 3timesamom. This is the same schedule that the birth center I used for my last pregnancy had.

my first visit was at about 10-11 weeks and then i see my midwife every 6 weeks until 28 weeks and then (if i remember correctly) every 4 weeks until 36 weeks and then once a week.  I feel like i never see her but adore her nonetheless.

Thanks everyone!  I think I will revise to 10w6d, 16th/17th week, 22nd, 26th, 30th, 32nd, 34th, 36th, 37th, 38th, 39th.

Last pregnancy this was my schedule: 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 34, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 :) I believe 12 prenatal visits is typical.
