    Default When do you go for an ultrasound?

    I asked this in the chatbox but no one was around. Just curious when most people go for their first ultrasound. Do you think I will have to go for one sooner then normal due to what happened in August?

    Guess I am just trying to get my ducks in a row or something lol.

    My dr. always orders one to confirm your due date 6-8 weeks and then the regular baby check at 18-20 weeks.

    My first ones were bc I was doing the prenatal screening... total blank on what it's called.... they give you a dating U/S at 13wks, then a second U/S at ~ 20wks.

    In windsor i didnt have one booked till about 18 weeks with my girls (however with my 2nd I had an emergency one at 10 weeks becuase I thought I was MC and then i had a zillion becuase we knew something was wrong with her)

    In London my doctor had me go in for one at like 5-6 weeks for a due date (even though i knew when it was and i was right)

    I had one at 8 to set a due date, 20 to check the anatomy, and 36 to check the position (because DD was transverse)

    I have always been given one to kinda judge how far along I am (so usually they measure about 7 weeks or so) and then another one around 18-20 weeks, and sometimes a few more near the end (since my uterus is wonky and my babies like to do funny things in there.)

    They will do an initial one coupled with blood work as part of screening if you so choose between around 11-13 weeks(don't quote me as my OB arranged everything right away). Then you get another one usually after 18 weeks-20 weeks for anatomy/measurements etc.
