Session 3: Week 18 - Hey Baby, There You Are

Week 18 Pregnancy Insights

Once you reach 20 weeks gestation, you are eligible to visit the OB Triage at Cape Coral Hospital in lieu of the ER for any concerns related to your pregnancy.  The OB Triage is open 24/7 and is located in the Obstetrics Unit.  During the hours of 6 AM to 8 PM use the “Women Care-Birth Suites” entrance around the back of the hospital. During the hours of 8 PM to 6 AM enter through the Emergency Room.

Ultrasounds evaluate for fetal structural abnormalities which may be linked to genetic disorders or may resolve on their own before delivery. This will be reviewed with you by your provider. Occasionally, the ultrasound may need to be repeated for better visualization of fetal anatomy. At later dates in pregnancy, we occasionally need to obtain additional ultrasounds but most healthy pregnancies do not require this.
