    Default 3rd Tri u/s?

    Doc said I need an u/s next week when I go in for my appointment. Didn't have an u/s with either of my others this late in the game. Is this normal now? Anyone else having one? Assuming it's to check fluid levels etc. Wasn't thinking straight when she told me so didn't think to ask... just curious. Of course always happy to peak at the little miss!

    How have your measurements been at your appointments? They could be checking fluid levels and/or baby's size. I'm jealous too!

    Oh yeah, totally jealous! I know my friend had one done to check on how big he was because she always measured bigger!

    I am having another one tomorrow with the high risk doctor. Because of the diabetes they wanted a growth scan and then because of the antibody they want an MCA and because I am dilating they wanted a cervix length check. Not complicated at all

    Some offices due growth scans in the 3rd tri normally now to see what they are working with, but they can be off by 2lbs so take what they say with a grain (or heap) of salt.

    I've had 3rd tri ultrasounds with this pregnancy and my last one, but it was because of issues with blood pressure (high blood pressure can lead to growth restriction and really small babies), and in my last pregnancy, I also ended up with low fluid, so several times they checked fluid level. In my first pregnancy, I didn't have any health issues, and never had 3rd tri u/s.

    I only had another one with my son because I was measuring small; otherwise I've never heard of it unless there is a concern like fluid levels, positioning of baby or size of baby.
