Missing your period by a day or two isn’t usually reason to suspect pregnancy, but if you’re about 2 weeks late, or you’ve tested positive with a home pregnancy test, Drs. Torres and Tyre suggest you come in to be tested for an official diagnosis and begin your prenatal care.
Prenatal care is one of those critical steps in keeping you and your baby healthy. Green Valley OB/GYN hopes you have an uneventful pregnancy, so getting early and frequent care can help identify health problems early, so they can be treated early. The doctors can also offer important coaching on lifestyle habits, such as exercise and diet, as well as prescribing prenatal vitamins and avoiding risky behavior.
It’s a good idea to schedule a consultation and exam with Green Valley OB/GYN prior to getting pregnant. The doctors can rule out or help you manage any preexisting medical conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure. They can also evaluate prescription or over-the-counter medications and supplements you’re using to see if they’re contraindicated in pregnancy. You can also get started on a quality prenatal vitamin to provide all the nutrients to yourself and your future baby right away.
The doctors at Green Valley OB/GYN will let you know what is a healthy amount for you to gain and they’ll keep you on track through the your trimesters. Every mother is different, depending on her starting weight and the size and stage of the baby’s development.
In the first and second trimester, you’ll likely see your doctor just once each month. After week 28 or 30, you’ll likely increase your visits to twice a month. At week 36 and up until your baby’s birth, you’ll have weekly visits. Moms older than 35 or those with known complications or risky pregnancies may be scheduled even more frequently.
