BecksGumby:Wow, so you have had one each time?? Right now I am jealous.
On one hand, I'm crazy spoiled by my doc...on the other, I've now had two meetings with the dildo cam (ahem). My doctor made a point of congratulating me and announcing that next appointment, I should be able to do abdominal (it gave me the feeling he gets some complaints about the transvag!) I'm not one to complain b/c after hearing other people's experiences on here (much less frequent U/S) I feel awfully pampered...?
1 is average (at 20 weeks). They usually only do one early on if 1- there's a history of miscarriage or prior problems, or 2- to date the pregnancy (if you don't know when you conceived).
With DS I got 2... one at 11 weeks when I was spotting and one at 20 weeks.
With DD I got 2... one at 5 1/2 weeks (she was an oops and I had no idea how far along I was) and one at 20 weeks.
Yes, they absolutely amazing and reassuring :)
I have been twice already and I got one both times. I learned I was pregnant very early, so I guess they want to keep u/s until they see the baby and hb. Everything is going great so far!!!!!
I have noticed though that everyone there is getting u/s too. It is a VERY large clinic so maybe they do it everytime. ::shrugs::
I'll get a bunch, too, but it's just because I don't have uncomplicated pregnancies.
I'll have 1 Thursday, then 1 at 12wks, then the anatomy scan at 19wks, then I'll have them every 2wks starting at 28wks. I have high BP, so they do BPPs to make sure the baby is OK in there. I also get really sick, don't gain weight, and my uterus stops growing at 36wks, so I have growth u/s done.
They start every 2wks, then every wk, then 2x a wk.
