Pregnancy Q&A

When should I talk to a doctor if I think I am pregnant?

You should make an appointment with Dr. Sohn at Stellar Women’s Care if you have a positive at-home pregnancy test. Some of the early signs of pregnancy include:

  • A missed period
  • Breast changes
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Mood changes
  • Dizziness
  • Food cravings or aversions

If you think you might be pregnant, take an at-home test, and make an appointment with Dr. Sohn. The earlier you start prenatal care, the better for you and your baby.

What are the standard prenatal services?

Dr. Sohn provides comprehensive prenatal care to help you and your baby stay healthy at every stage of pregnancy. He offers routine prenatal health checks for low- and high-risk pregnancies and extensive screening services, including:

  • Genetic screening
  • 3D and 4D ultrasounds
  • Amniocentesis
  • Fetal monitoring non-stress tests (NST)

Dr. Sohn also has experience in helping women with high blood pressure, diabetes, or other pre-existing conditions to have healthy pregnancies. Dr. Sohn can also provide cerclage if you have signs of preterm labor. 

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

A high-risk pregnancy isn’t as scary as it sounds. Women who are 35 or older or who have a health condition like obesity, diabetes, or high blood pressure have high-risk pregnancies. Additionally, being pregnant with twins or other multiples is considered high-risk. 

How often do I need to see a doctor during pregnancy?

You have many prenatal checkups. For the first 28 weeks, you have a monthly appointment. Then you have biweekly appointments during week 28-36. After 36 weeks, you have weekly appointments until your baby is born.

What happens when I go into labor?

You begin labor when your cervix starts to dilate, so your baby can travel through the birth canal and be born. Some of the signs of labor include having a burst of energy, feeling like your baby has moved lower into your pelvis, and starting contractions. Contractions might feel like back pain or cramps. You should call Dr. Sohn and head to the hospital when your contractions come every four to five minutes. 

You and Dr. Sohn discuss your birth plan during your prenatal appointments, and he does his best to help you have the labor and delivery you want. He is even experienced with vaginal birth after C-section (VBAC) deliveries.
