Pregnancy Q & A

My OB/GYN Specialists

When should I schedule my first appointment?

You should schedule an appointment at My OB/GYN Specialists as soon as you know you’re pregnant — starting prenatal care early ensures a healthy pregnancy from the get-go.

If you’re not pregnant, but have plans in the near future to become pregnant, it’s also a great time to schedule an appointment with the women’s health experts at My OB/GYN Specialists for preconception health care.

This may include an examination and a discussion of what you can do at home to help ensure a healthy pregnancy, such as avoiding certain foods and taking folic acid.

How often do I need to see the doctor during my pregnancy?

How often you see the team at My OB/GYN Specialists depends on your health and stage of pregnancy.

For the first 28 weeks of pregnancy, you only need to go in once a month. Then, twice a month during weeks 29 through 36. As you get closer to your delivery, the team at My OB/GYN may want to see you once a week.

As a patient with the team of healthcare professionals at My OB/GYN Specialists, you can expect to deliver your baby at Baptist Hospital in Miami.

What special tests do I need during pregnancy?

The tests you need during your pregnancy vary and may be determined partially by your age and health needs.

Common tests include:

  • Complete blood count to check for anemia
  • Rh factor for blood compatibility with your baby
  • HIV test
  • Diagnostic tests for genetic disorders such as Down syndrome
  • Glucose challenge test for gestational diabetes

 

As a modern, full-service practice, the team at My OB/GYN also offers ultrasounds at the office.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

If you’re at risk for complications during your pregnancy, you’re considered high risk.

You may be considered high risk if you:

  • Are over the age of 35
  • Have a pre-existing medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease
  • Developed gestational diabetes
  • Gained too much or not enough weight
  • Are pregnant with twins or multiples
