How many midwife check ups are people having with second baby?
I'm now 32 weeks and haven't had a check up since 24 weeks. I know you get less check ups with second pregnancy  (if low risk) but this seems like a really long time to wait. Have called my midwife today to check and am waiting for a call back.

I saw my OB once a month until 7 months, then every 2 weeks, and once a week during the last month.
Not sure if it's any different with midwife. I'm in US, and its a pretty standard practice here, no matter what number pregnancy it is..

For both pregnancy I've seen my midwife once a month, until 34 weeks. Then I had weekly appointments until my due date.
Both weren't high risk pregnancies

I'm 36wks should be seeing my OB every other but my mom passed away in the beginning of January and when I came home I didn't have the money for a sitter so I attempted to take my DD and was told she had to wait outside so I had to reschedule my appointment from January 20th to February 2.
