Weekly Dr Visits....when do they start??

Hi Ladies.  Good morning!  I am 34.5 weeks with my first baby.  I am currently on 2 week intervals where the check my fundal height and break out the baby monitor.  When will they start with weekly visits and checking for labor progress?

My Dr only gave me one ultra sound and that was at 20 weeks.  So, i'm just gettting very anxious and would LOVE to have an IDEA of how big he is....but I gues I will find that out soon enough!

I was just wondering what I can expect from this point on.

Thanks!

I started going for weekly visits at 36 weeks. All doctors are different though so you never know. I am 38 weeks now and look forward to my weekly appointments. We are both so close!!!! Our little ones will be here soon.

I was blessed enough to have TWO showers!!!  My friends gave me a shower down here in Charleston where we live and gave us all kinds of great stuff.  Then, my co-workers all chiped in and gave us the stroller/carseat combo that was on my registry!  What a wonderful gift!  I am still in shock!

Then my mom gave me a shower back home in Asheville and we got even more than we ever expected.  Great thing was, we only reccieved two duplicate blankets out of everything we got!!!

I have since washed, folded, and organized EVERYTHING.  Do you think I am nesting much???????????

I started going every week at 26 weeks but I am carrying twins, so I'd go with whatever the other ladies said!!
