Prenatal visits

Prenatal checkup: week 30

If your baby develops as expected, on this visit, you will most likely discuss some of the symptoms that you probably feel more now — like back pain, constipation, heartburn, sleepless nights, and itchy skin.

What to expect:

What to ask:

  1. Are there any other tests/screenings you recommend in the next few weeks?
  2. Do you have a list of pediatricians you recommend?
  3. Do you have any advice for getting more sleep?
  4. What’s the best way to deal with back pain, leg cramps, and sciatica?
  5. What can I do about itchy breasts and belly?
  6. What should I do when I have constipation?

To prepare
Bring in any remedies — medications, vitamins, herbal teas, and others — you’re taking for your symptoms.

Optional test
Nonstress test: It’s a way to assess the baby’s well-being by listening to the baby’s fetal heart rate and your uterine contraction over 20-30 mins.
