In your shoes I would call ahead and ask to have more than 12 cores taken at your next biopsy, perhaps 16 or 18, unless your uro already has even more planned. To continue on AS you want some indication that you don't have any lesions greater than 3+3, and if that is the case, that your amount of 3+3 hasn't increased significantly. If you agree, don't wait until your biopsy to ask, because the correct number of specimen cups need to be set up ahead of time.
Best of luck,
