Now that you're pregnant, you're going to have to take very good care of yourself and your growing baby. That means getting good prenatal care by going to your health care provider on a regular basis.
Perhaps you discussed pregnancy with your provider before you got pregnant and know how often you need to be seen for care. If not, then make an appointment with your provider as soon as you know you are pregnant. The first appointment is important to see how far along you are and when you and your baby will need to be monitored during your pregnancy. You will likely see your provider once a month through your 28th week. From weeks 28 to 36, weeks you will need to go about every 2 weeks. From week 36 until delivery, you will probably be seen once a week. This may vary slightly and will be specific to you and your pregnancy.
