The prenatal visits will be scheduled every four weeks until you are 28 weeks and then every two weeks until you are 36 weeks, at that time your visits will be weekly until the baby is born.  I do a home visit around 36 weeks. Each prenatal visit will include weight check, blood pressure check, fundal height measurement, palpation of the baby for size and position, listening for fetal heart tones, a 10-way urinalysis, and lab work as needed.
