Most people I know here don't get ultrasounds unless there is a complication with current pg or they have had problems with previous pg. I had one because of my history of mc's.

I have had 2 already, but I think they are a little u/s happy here. I think last time I had one at every appt I had!

I just had my 1st US last week it was the NT scan and the reason I did it was just so that I could see my baby and know that everthing was OK. My OB doesn't do early scans unless you are having a complication. WELL...I am SO glad that I did because this is when I found out that I am having twins!!! Could you have imagined if I had not found out until the 20 wk scan! :eek:

I had one last week, I had a m/c last preg and the doc said come in and have one to see if all was well. Last preg I only had the 20 week one. I think this time I have the option of the NT scan, I will do it!!!

i think many docs will give more u/s if you have a history of m/c. when i was pg with my son i had SO many u/s. first i had them like every week or so just to check progress. then the NT scan, then the 20 week. at the 20 week they saw that my little guy was very small so they wanted me to come in for growth scans once a month. he wound up remaining pretty small so then i was in every 2 weeks! i saw that baby SO much!

i wonder how it will be this time. i have an u/s on april 4th. hoping to see something and get lucky seeing/hearing heartbeat. i'm hoping that this pregnancy will be alot less stressful than the last. then again, that would mean not seeing the baby so often....

When I scheduled my appointment I think the receptionist said they'd schedule the u/s at that time, so I'll find out when I go on Monday. Last time I had my first u/s around 11 weeks, but this is a different doctor so I'm not sure what kind of timeline he follows.

Around here we only get 2 - usually around 10 weeks just to check things out, and to date the EDD 'officially'. And then at 20 weeks to check up and find our gender if you wish.

I haven't even had a blood test to confirm this pregnancy yet! I'll have it done at my first appt at 8 weeks.
