    Default Ultrasound

    So My drs office informed me when i was doing my bloodwork and scheduling my sonogram that i can't schedule it till December 3rd which will put me at 20 wks, they said they are looking more for measurements and dates to make sure baby is growing right.. But when i had my apt 3 weeks ago with my ob my ob told me that i could do it @17 to find out the babys sex.. ooh well its only 3 weeks right?

    they might have meant that you can see gender good at 17 weeks, but most places don't actually do them to determine gender. Medically, they don't care and you need to be at least 18 weeks to get good measurements.

    Yes, mine doesn't do anatomy u/s until 19 weeks (and they prefer 20 or 21!) Oh well, hard to wait, but your baby will be that much more cooked by then. (That's what I keep telling myself since I had to wait for 21 weeks myself!)

    My doc won't do them until 20 weeks, period. I had asked could I come in a few days sooner so I can have the news ready for our Thanksgiving Pt. 1 (LOL) ...and nope! Gotta be 20 weeks.

    I usually get mine at 18-20 weeks as well.
    I know there are some places where you can pay $50-$100 and all they do is tell you what you're having. It's an option if you think it's worth it.
