Obstetrics Q&A

What is obstetrics care?

Obstetrics care at Lovely OBGYN includes exceptional medical monitoring, diagnostic testing, and treatment when needed during pregnancy.

A full-term pregnancy often lasts about 40 weeks.

The Lovely OBGYN experts care for women with low-risk and high-risk pregnancies. They personalize care based on your unique needs and offer same-day appointments if you have a health scare.

What happens during obstetrics appointments?

During obstetrics appointments at Lovely OBGYN, a specialist greets you, weighs you, and checks your vital signs. You may also need to provide a urine sample. 

They discuss your medical history, complete a medical exam, and often measure your abdomen and listen to your baby’s heartbeat. 

If needed, they order blood testing, genetic testing, an ultrasound, or another diagnostic test.

Your provider answers questions you might have about your pregnancy and addresses concerns that arise. They discuss which prenatal vitamins to take, a well-balanced diet to follow, and ways to safely exercise and reduce stress during your pregnancy. It’s also vital to avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, using drugs, or taking certain medications while pregnant. 

How often should I schedule obstetrics visits?

Your provider determines when to schedule obstetrics visits based on how far along you are in your pregnancy and whether or not the pregnancy is low- or high-risk. In general, you should see your OB/GYN specialist as soon as you suspect you’re pregnant, once monthly during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy, twice weekly during weeks 28-36, and weekly afterward until delivery.

Call the Lovely OBGYN office anytime you develop new or alarming symptoms, such as cramping, pelvic pain, bleeding, or decreases in your baby’s movement.
