when I said "sporadic" I meant more over my whole practice, than to an individual mama. some women are fine and healthy, and want a very 'hands-off' approach. those mamas, I would measure maybe once to get a base-line, but only if I suspected something was up. then we might do a weekly measurement, to see how she's growing.
for women who like to take measurements, I might do it every pre-natal, or every second one, depending on frequency and how the mama is doing.
and I'm not looking really for deviations from the norm, but to see how the mama's individual rate of growth looks over time. you can get an idea of that even without lots of measurements.
