Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I had one at 8 weeks after being punched in the stomach by a student (I teach middle school) and my NT scan.
If I didn't want a NT scan and didn't get punched I would only have one at 20 weeks. I don't think I could've waited thanks to PGaL brain.
flowerpower3:My RE does ultra sounds at 7 weeks before releasing to OB, so I had one then.nbsp; Next one isn't till anatomy scan.
I had a dating u/s done when I was just under 9 weeks. I had no idea when my LMP was, so she wanted to see how far along I was.
I'm not doing the NT scan since insurance doesn't cover it. So I won't be having my next one until sometime in August. I have my next appt August 9th and she said we'd schedule for the a/s then.
But we might do an elective u/s prior to that since DH cannot wait to find out the sex of LO.
I'll have my first one during my Integrated Prenatal Screening on Monday at 12 wks 1 day. FX everything goes well, because it will be our first time even getting to hear the heartbeat!
After that, I only get one more between 18-22 wks for an anatomy scan.
I've had 2 so far.
My OB office does an U/S to confirm so I had that one at 8 weeks and then I chose to do the NT scan so I had that at 11 weeks. Next scan is at 20 weeks.
With my first I had 4: The NT scan twice (my dating was off, so the baby was too small to get the measurements they needed the first time so I had to come back the next week), the anatomy scan, and then my doctor ordered another u/s at 38 weeks since I was measuring ahead.
I've had 3 - dating at 9 weeks, NT at 11w6d and repeat NT at 13w5d. I'll have at least 3 more, including 2 fetal echocardiograms and the anatomy scan. We've had complications, though, so I'm considered high risk for now.
Honestly, I would give anything to only need 2 like last pregnancy...

I had a dating US around 7 weeks, and then the nurse couldn't find the heart beat at my 10 week appt so I got a quick freebie US then, and today I had my NT scan. I will have my Anatomy Scan around 19 or 20 weeks and then another US sometime after that to check growth I believe.
It was amazing to see the baby today. I have a two year old, so it hasn't been that long since I did this before but the technology has advanced a ton in such a short period of time, I loved seeing the baby so clear today.
First one at 7w, second one today 12w1d, next at 20 weeks. Hopefully everything goes well and I do not need any in between.
I will also do a 3d/4d elective scan around 28-30 weeks for fun pics.
candypantsls:Around 20 weeks, as well.... Are you on tricare by chance?

Dating US at 8 weeks, which was unnecessary because I knew the conception date for sure. (But OB didn't ask, and I wanted to hear that heartbeat!)
I just had NS at 12 weeks, with pretty pictures, and I'll have the full anatomy scan at 20 weeks. I hope that'll be all!
jeslillyn:What is tricare? I'm assuming no since I have no idea what that is lol..

what the what? So, this kid deliberately punched you in the stomach?! Please tell me he at least got suspended. Holy Crap.
