At 34 weeks visits to the prenatal care provider have been every other week and will soon switch to weekly visits. Care is focused on assessing maternal and fetal wellbeing, as well as evaluating for signs of complications. The discomforts of pregnancy are intensified by the large size of the uterus. Making sure that all the plans for the labor and birth are in place is a common activity at this point in the pregnancy.
During this period of your pregnancy, you should be going to the doctor twice monthly - even more if you have a high-risk pregnancy.
