  • Have you had an ultrasound with this pregnancy? Does your doctor or midwife use it as a frequent tool during pg or only at the beginning?

  • I had one at 20 weeks and one at 28 weeks. My OB only does those two unless there are complications or he'll do an early one if there's a question about when you became pregnant. I had 3 with Susan: one at 12 weeks, one at 20, and one at 28.

  • i've had 4 (twice because of bleeding and passed some tissue) all is ok. Next appt is for Friday. So anxious/nervouse to see the baby and hear the heartbeat again (heard it when I went to my check-up and found out I was pg, i was 6wks exactly)

  • I had scans at 6 and 8 wks as per the standard at my fertility clinic (IVF/ICSI baby) to check how many of my two embies had implanted and that all was progressing smoothly. I had another at 11.5 wks to check on baby as I'd had some spotting. Then the standard 20wk anomally scan. They were concerned for my growth as I looked small so I had further scans at 31 and 38wks to check all was ok - and it was
     

    They only scanned when they felt there was reason to scan, they did play it very safe with me throughout so I had more than most would in my area of the Uk - standard lvl of scanning here would be 12wks approx if unsure of dates / considered to be an older mum and then again at 20wks.

  • With my first pg I had 4 one at 9wks, one at 20 wks, one at 32 wks to find out the sex cause my kids are non cooperative, and then one at 37 weeks to make sure I had enough amniotic fluid cause I had hb. Then with Harlee I had to many to count! I had one at 6 weeks cause I was spotting, one at 9 wks, one at 13 wks cause the dr screwed up but wanted to see my baby, LOL , one at 21 weeks, then from 28 wks I had one at least once a week until 37 weeks cause I was high risk because I developed preeclamsia again! So I had lots of them but for good reasons. My drs norm was one at 9 weeks to be sure of the dates, one at 20 wks or so to check the baby, and one at 32 wks to check the sex of the baby.
