I know this topic has been addressed more than once on this board but I just have to bring it up again. Is it just me or does EVERYONE and their dog get early U/S now? I understand if you have a history of having problems or there is "not normal" bleeding but it's like a regular practice to give an U/S between 6-12 weeks now. I don't get it. I mean I got an early U/S with DS2 but that was for dating because I hadn't had a period yet after BC. With DS1 I had 1 U/S at 20 weeks. That was my favorite U/S out of all of them because I could actually see the baby rather than a little blob with a heart beat. IDK maybe it's just me but I don't really see the point of early U/S unless it's for dating purposes or to check for heart beat. There is a poor lady on my board that is scared to death she is loosing the baby because the U/S is showing the baby to be smaller then the doctors think it should be. The baby is growing and at 8 weeks has a HR of 120 bpm but is only measuring 6 1/2 and they have told her to prepare to loose the baby because the baby isn't growing fast enough.
IDK, I personally don't like early u/s they seem to cause more problems then they actually solve in my eyes. BUT this is purely my opinion. So please no judging.
