Hi Michelle!

Glad you had a great appointment! I am also at 14 weeks with hx of severe PE/HELP in my first pregnancy and started this pregnancy with HTN. Although I'm now off HTN meds because my BP has been low, I've been told I'll be seen every 2 weeks starting at 20 weeks or earlier if the BP begins to rise. I'm monitoring my BP at home daily. Good luck and let's hope October gets here following an uneventful Spring and Summer!

Great news! I am so happy for you! Goodness, it seems like you just got your BFP; I can't believe it has been 14 weeks already. Best of luck to you!

Congratulations on a good appointment! Being seen so often was a relief to me...that way I knew we were on the ball and hopefully going to catch anything that came our way. Congrats again and wishing you many more good appointments

That is great Michelle! Congratulations! I am not going to start seeing the Peri until week 18...I will be thirteen weeks on Monday...but at my appointment on Tuesday I got the clear for 4 weeks-they just told me to call if my bp got high at home, I am not sure what they will do once I get to that point!

I've been going to my peri every two weeks all along (I don't have a regular OB).

I've been seeing my OB every 2-3 weeks since the beginning of my pregnancy, but I only see the peri every 6 weeks or so. That may change as I progress, I don't know. Congrats on the good appointment!

I saw my peri every two weeks from four weeks through 32. At 32, I switched to twice weekly for BPPs and NSTs. I did not see an OB, just the peri, for obstetrical care with my last pregnancy. Congratulations on a good visit and welcome to the second trimester! Woohoo!
