Is it normal to only be seen once a month by your doctor when you are 7 months along in the pregnancy?

This depends on your doctor. In past experience, if your pregnancy is healthy, you will see the doctor every week in the 8th month until birth. We have been told that if there are problems, then you will see the doctor more often - ex. baby not growing, irregular heartbeat, unusual urine test results, etc. If it is your first baby your doctor/midwife will soon start wanting to see you more frequently. If you have previously had an uncomplicated pregnancy you will probably be seen monthly until 36 weeks, then a couple more times before your due date. (My experience has been in the UK and this has been the best plan devised by research))
