Re: Do i get another U/S ??

  • Depends on the doctor and your situation I think. For most I think the 20 week scan is the last scan unless they have concerns about growth, fluid or you have other health situations (like GD, etc.). HTH

  • I have my last one at 36 weeks. I know they'll use this to see about how big baby is. But other than that I'm not sure of the purpose...

  • Depends on the doctor. I had one at 30 weeks and have another at 36 weeks. No major issues, just checking up.

  • Depends on your doctor and insurance. With mine, the 20 week is the last one unless there is a medical reason for a later one. 
    Sept 2013 started TTC#2 (never got PP period so hoping for the first egg to drop)
    Jan 2014 - diagnosed POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) and told pregnancy not possible without egg donor because my ovaries would never function again with my hormone levels (FSH 136, LH 98.6, AMH <.03) - using acupuncture, chiropractic care and TCM herbs / supplements
    March 11, 2014 ovulated despite every doctors prognosis!!!
    May 31, 2014 BFP but ended in CP within hours - I've come a long way from non functioning ovaries. Stick next time baby!!

  • It definitely seems to depend on the doctor. I was wondering this exact same thing, so I asked my doctor at my last appointment. She said that we wouldn't have another one, unless I "really" wanted one. She said if I really wanted one, she could come up with a medical reason to get it done Smile

    Also, she has a little portable one we can use in the office just to see the little guy, but it can't really show his size or growth, but it is just nice to see him sometimes. Since she has that little machine, we have already seen him about 5 or 6 different times. To get an appointment on the "fancy machine" as we call it, is what she would need to have a medical reason for.

  • If we didnt have any problems 20 weeks would have been my last one.

  • My office does them again at 32 weeks but a lot of offices the 20 week is it. I would just ask at your next appointment.

  • With my first 2 pregnancies I had 2 u/s each, my 3rd child I had 3-the last one being at 40+6 to see if he was 'done'...with this baby I've had 4 already and one more the first week of october to see if shes viable. It depends on the dr and if there's health concerns.

  • I agree with PP that it depends on different doctors and situations.  For mine, I'm seeing a Maternal Fetus Medicine doctor as my ob for my high risk, mainly my age.  DH and I asked him at my last appointment if I need an ultrasound for my 3rd trimester.  My ob/peri then ordered one for us and it'll be this Friday.

  • If baby and mom are healthy, not usually.

  • Depends on the doctor. Mine does a 30 week u/s as well, but they are pretty generous with the u/s (I get one at 8, 12, 20, and 30 weeks).

  • I just found out today that I get another one at my 32 week appointment. Very unexpected as I thought the one at 20 weeks was the last one. But im very excited to see her again here soon!

  • With my first baby, I didn't have any ultrasounds after the anatomy scan.  This time, I'm with a different OB in the same practice; she does an additional ultrasound at 36 weeks to check the baby's positioning.

     This!  My last one was at 20 weeks, and unless there is any medical reason to do one within the next few weeks, I will not be having another.

  • In my office you get one to confirm dates at 8-10 weeks then the anatomy scan at 18-20 weeks and a final scan at 38 weeks to check position of baby, placenta, and size. Unless you are having other issues of course.
    Life is short, live it to its fullest :)
