Pregnancy Q & A

pregnancy test

If I think I am pregnant, how soon should I make an appointment?

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.

What is considered a high-risk pregnancy?

Your pregnancy might be considered “high-risk” if you’re:

  • A young teenager
  • Over age 35
  • Overweight or obese
  • Pregnant with more than 1 baby
  • Have a history of high-risk pregnancies
  • Have chronic health conditions: High blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, etc.

 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.

How much weight should I expect to gain during pregnancy?

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.

When do I start planning my delivery?

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.

How often do I need to see the doctor?

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.
