You should see your doctor around 12-13 weeks again.

It depends on your age, your medical history, your overall health, and where you stay, e.g. if you stay in Grahamstown and your nearest gynaecologist is in East London or Port Elizabeth, then your visits will, of necessity, be far and few between, but you will hopefully see your GP in between the visits to the specialist.

The specialist is probably going away over the Festive Season, hence the long gap between visits. Hopefully, it is not the norm.

Hi Happy,

I am 11 weeks pregnant. I saw my gynae for the first time when I was 9 weeks and I will be seeing her again when I am 13 weeks, you should normally see your gynae once a month.

Congratulations on your pregnancy, don't forget to take your folic acid.

Take care

Usually during the first and second trimester, your gynae visists are 6 weeks apart, unless you are high risk. After 2nd trimester it moves to 4 weeks then two weeks then the last couple of weeks it is every week.
