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.
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...
DS1 born 08.02.11
DS2 born 12.05.13
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?

BFP May 5, 2013 - EDD January 14, 2014
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.
Had one at 6, 10, and 12 (for NT scan). Not sure if I'll have one tomorrow at my appt or not.
With DD, I had one at 7, 11, 12 (for NT), 15, 18, 20 (anatomy), and 34ish. I think I had another one in there too but can't remember when. The 15 and 18w ones were my choice (my OB will do them whenever I ask) but the rest are standard at the office.
