How many visits are usually necessary to the ObGyn for a normal pregnancy?
In UK you would normally see someone early (7-10 weeks)to book somewhere for delivery, whether at home, maternity unit or birthing centre, may also have an early scan if unsure of dates. Scan and blood tests at 12 weeks for Downs syndrome. Scan at 18-20 weeks for abnormalities. See Midwife at 20 weeks to discuss the above and general check. See midwife at 24-26 weeks for general check See midwife at 28-30 weeks for check and blood tests. See midwife at 33 weeks for check See midwife at 36 weeks for check See midwife at 38 weeks for check See midwife at 40 weeks First time mums would have another check at 39 weeks as more liable to get pre-eclampsia. Mums with problems (eg diabetic, multiple pregnancy) would have more visits and see a specialist. These visits have been worked out from research rather than 'it has always been done like this'. Here we try to personalise care so use this as a guideline to discuss with your own carer.

Was Thomas Paine a midwife and what is a midwife?
A midwife is someone who is trained to assist in childbirth. Thomas Paine is sometimes said to have been midwife to the United States, but this is not meant literally. Thomas Paine was a writer around the time of the Revolutionary War in the US. He wrote widely circulated pamphlets arguing for Independence. In this way he was very influential to the "birth" of the United States.

Asked in Miscarriages, Spotting While Pregnant
Am 7 weeks pregnant and bleeding for 3 days now does that means you have a miscarriage?
if you have been bleeding for 3days you should ring your midwife or maternity unit who should bring you in for a scan to see if there has been a miscarriage. if you have had what they call clotting which is like a big clot of blood it could well be a sign that you have miscarried but the best thing you can do is get down to the hospital for a scan.
If you have been bleeding for 3 days and having slight cramps are you miscarrying?

Is there a problem if you can't feel a baby kick after 22 weeks and have been doing regular check ups?
There may be a problem. If the baby has kicked before and has now stopped you need to see a midwife or ob/gyn. If the baby has not yet kicked you may be a little out with your dates. With your first baby you don;t generally feel it kick until 20 weeks. And if you are overweight it may be later than that.
Could you still be pregnant if your period came 2 weeks early?
