Routine examinations during pregnancy: when to see a doctor
When you learn the happiest news in your life, you forget about everything.
But every mother remembers her baby’s health. To know how the baby develops and how your body reacts to its appearance, you need to regularly consult a doctor.
There are scheduled inspections, which need to appear. We understand that we do not want to, but you are a caring mother.
Until the 12th week of pregnancy you will need to visit the women’s consultation at least once. The doctor will get a medical card, send to ultrasound and tests. During the first examination, tell the doctor about all the diseases, including chronic ones. The gynecologist will give recommendations on nutrition and lifestyle during the next few months of life. The doctor will refer you to the examinations for other specialists: to the dentist, the therapist, the oculist.
The doctor will offer two ultrasound examinations: at 5-6 weeks (to be sure that the pregnancy is uterine) and at 11-12 weeks (for prenatal screening for malformations). For the screening, you will need to double the blood test at 11-13 weeks and at 16-18 weeks of pregnancy.
Future mommy-forumchanka Alice tells: I learned about pregnancy very early, literally in the first cycle. Immediately ran to the doctor. They say to me: milf, wait at least until the 5th week, where do you hurry? And I was so impatient to quickly get the official status of a pregnant woman, that I calculated straight days, when this fifth week will come.
If before The 41st week the kid did not want to be born, the doctor will offer you hospitalization so that doctors can monitor the baby constantly or stimulate the onset of labor. Listen to the advice of your doctor, but it is better to know the opinions of several doctors before agreeing to stimulate labor.
If you have complications during pregnancy or have chronic illnesses, you will have to see your doctor more often than once a month before the 30th week, and twice a month after that date.
In any case, remember: the main thing is a positive attitude! Communicate with your baby so that he feels like he is waiting in this world, and how much parents will be happy about his birth.
Easy pregnancy and good mood!
