Re: when was your 1st u/s?

  • Mine was at like 5 weeks... they thought I was 6 weeks but I O'd late.  So I saw just the sac and yolk. I of course paniced but when we went backa  week later we saw the HB.  In hind-sight I should have asked them to wait a little while longer to send me because that was my instinct.

  • I had one at 5w5d to check for viability, and then another at 5w6d to check for a heartbeat.

    Then I had one at 10 weeks because of spotting and on at 15 weeks because of infected gall bladder, and they needed to check that the baby was ok.

    I also had my NT scan at 12 weeks and my big u/s at 20 weeks.

    I've had quite a few!!

  • I did a viability u/s at 5w3d and then a hb check at 7w. ?

    Then I didn't have another til 18 weeks and a 3D which will be in about an hour :)?

  • We had one at 7w since our previous loss was around then, then another at 9w b/c of SCH (all clear). We saw the HB at both.

  • My first was supposed to be for 8w and I had to reschedule to 10w.  I ended up going twice before that for different emergencies.  Once at 5w6d for extreme pain on my right side and once at 7w1d for spotting.

  • Mine was at 6 weeks exactly.  With my first BFP, it was at 5w3d because I O'ed late but they insisted, they go by my LMP, so it was early.  We still saw the gestational sac and yolk sac with that pregnancy though.

    Good luck today!

  • I had 3 early ones....5, 6, and 7 weeks!

  • I believe my first one was around 6w5d. I had another one 2 weeks later with the RE, then graduated to the OB. They did one there at my first appt. which was close to 12 weeks, and then I had my NT scan the next week just past 12 weeks. Next one is July 17th at 20 weeks. GL to you!
  • Mine was at 6 w 1 d. My Dr always does an early 6 week us, but for us she jsut did them more frequesnt to calm our fears.
  • mine was at 6w1d : )  We saw a hb...

    We will have an u/s at every appt starting with our 16w appt.

  • My first ultrasound was at 7 weeks and then I had a heartbeat check at 10 weeks and my NT scan ultrasound at 12 weeks.
  • my dr would only give me one, it was at 17w 3d.

  • I'm pretty sure my first u/s was at 6w6d, and the next was at 8w6d then my NT scan at 11w6d, no u/s at my next appt on tuesday so I guess my next one won't be until 19w6d. I wish they would just make it on an even week number lol. But you already pretty much know my history and know why I was in for a few early u/s'.

  • 1st u/s was 7 wks exactly. I did ivf and my re wanted to make sure everything would be seen at that u/s so he didn't want me to come in earlier than 7 wks.

    2nd u/s was the n/t scan at 13 wks 1 day

    3rd u/s was 18 wks exactly. The "big" u/s

    Not sure when my next one is scheduled.

  • 6 wks 4 days.

    My RE does not believe in doing the first u/s before 6 weeks and a couple days. She waits to give the heart a chance to start beating.   

    She finds that u/s in the 5th week just end up stressing the mom out. Even though you logically know you likely won't see a hb, you still hope to see one and then worry when you don't (esp if your u/s is nearer the end of the week).    I agree with her. By waiting I went in, saw a baby, saw a hb, and was happy.

  • I had my first one when i was 6 weeks. But i think they only did it that early because we weren't really sure how far along i was, long story.
  • Only because I was sooo sick in the first trimester and had to be hospitalized I got my first one at 6 weeks. It was initially just to see how far I was. The second one, which was the official to check growth and gender, I was 21 weeks. The last one (hospitalized again) came when I was...geez 26-27 weeks. And by his growth, either I'm due earlier than I was told, or he's just growing totally fast!
  • 6 weeks, but only because they thought I was 8 weeks based on my LMP.  After they discovered I was 6 weeks, a second u/s was scheduled for my real 8 week appointment. 
  • I had mine between 11-12 weeks. My doctor wouldn't do it any earlier than that. Honestly not sure there'll be much you could see (or make out at least) if you have it any earlier.
  • 6 weeks, then again at 8 weeks, 12 weeks (NT Scan), 20 weeks (big ultrasound...gender and the checks for everything else.  I don't know when and if we are going to have another one.

  • I had my first at 11 weeks but that was only because I was having pain on my side. ?It was a good thing we went in because we found out it was twins. ?It totally depends on your office, your doctor, and your history. ?My sister had a history of problems and so they do u/s on her much earlier and check her numbers with blood work. ?We conceived naturally and had no problems so I think my first u/s was going to be scheduled later at like 15-18 weeks. ?

    9 weeks for first one - second one scheduled for 15 weeks then I will have a third around 26 weeks according to Dr.
  • We had a confirmatory U/S at 7 weeks and then again at 10 wks(high risk with 2 M/C). Our last was at 15 wks and we are scheduled for another at 20 wks to find out the sex. Ask if you want one. The worst they can say is no? :)
  • My first ultrasound with this one was at 7 weeks because they suspected the embryo was forming in my tubes.  My next one was at 13 weeks because they couldn't detect the baby's heartbeat, and then the "official" one as the OB called it was done at 16 weeks.

  • I had my 1st one yesterday at 9wks 1day and unless other wise needed I will have the BIG one at 18 wks. Ah, I love my ultra sound picture :)
  • 8 weeks this time, glad I waited so I was sure I would be able to see something.

    I also had one a little over 11 weeks for spotting.

  • My first OB appt was at 8 weeks and my first u/s was at 9 weeks
