If you’re pregnant, or wanting to become pregnant, you should have an OB/GYN who guides you through your pregnancy and hands you your baby after delivery. Dr. Gene Krishingner Jr. and his caring team at Women’s and Maternity Care Specialists can be there for you from day one. Visit their office in Orlando or Winter Park, Florida, to get the care that you — and your new baby — deserve.
As soon as you have a positive home pregnancy test, plan on scheduling your first visit. This appointment, which is usually done around 7-9 weeks, is called the “confirmation pregnancy visit.” You’ll usually have to provide a urine sample, to confirm pregnancy. It’s also the time to go over all of your medical concerns and past history with the healthcare team.
In some cases, you may also have an ultrasound during this visit, which allows you to see your growing baby and hear his or her heartbeat. If your pregnancy is still early, the team might schedule the ultrasound for a few weeks later.
Your pregnancy might be considered “high-risk” if you’re:
Just because you have a high-risk pregnancy, doesn’t mean you should worry. Dr. K and his team will guide you through everything you need to do, right from the get-go. In some cases you might know ahead of time of your chances of having a high-risk pregnancy. Other times, you might not know until your doctor sees something that concerns him.
It really depends on your own body, but be prepared to gain some weight, it’s healthy. Just be aware of your diet and activity level so you don’t gain too much. You should gain about 25-35 pounds during your pregnancy.
You can certainly start planning the ideal delivery for your family as soon as you find out you’re pregnant. It’s best to get pre-registered at the hospital around 32 weeks and always have a backup plan in place, just in case your ideal birthing plan doesn’t go as expected. We will make sure that you can reach a health care provider, and other team members, so you’ll always have a member of his staff available to you when your delivery time comes.
Proper prenatal care allows our team to catch and treat problems early on in the pregnancy. Our team enjoys building that bond with each patient and helps us to build trust throughout the pregnancy. Typically a low risk pregnancy is seen every 4 weeks until 28th weeks, then biweekly until 36 weeks. After 36 weeks, we will see you weekly until delivery.
