DS#1 3-28-02 ~ DD 6-15-09 ~ DS#2 5-31-13
It is not standard with my OB. With both pregnancies I measured far behind and have had growth scans but only due to the measuring issue.
The standard ultrasounds with my OB are the 8ish week dating u/s and the 20 week a/s. The First Trimester n/t scan is offered but optional.
I am pretty sure the only reason I had one was because there was a soft marker in an earlier test that may indicate slow fetal growth.
MeghanKG:No, not everyone does. I did last week because my son was measuring big, and the ultrasound predicted he was 8 pounds, 2 ounces. I had him two days later and he was significantly smaller, so they're basically useless in my opinion.
BFP 5/21/10, Missed m/c 7/5/10 at 11w3d (baby measured 7wks), D&C 7/7/10
Aug/Sept 2010 - CD3&10 b/w & u/s, genetic testing, SA, HSG, & Lap/Hyst to remove septum
12/09/10 BFP -- 7/05/11 DS born at 33w5d. Came home after 23d in NICU at 37w0d
June 2012 - TTC #2! -- 10/05/12 BFP -- 5/23/13 DS2 born at 37w1d! Yay full term!
My office doesn't do them unless they suspect there is an issue. Growth u/s are known to be inaccurate anyway, so it suits me just fine. I haven't seen her since the a/s, and it'd be nice to see her again, but it's not necessary.
Not standard at mine but I know all my friends that go to the same practice had one. My OB offered and I decided to do it.
