I am 6w3d pregnant. My first prenatal checkup isn't until 10 weeks so, I have time to make a decision on whether or not I want an ultrasound done. I am trying my hardest (as I'm sure you all are as well) to make appropriate choices in diet and exercise during my pregnancy. I also plan to have a natural birth either at home or at a birthing center. I am genuinely scared that I am going to be "bullied" into procedures that I do not necessarily understand or agree with during doctor's appointments and/or if I do end up in the hospital giving birth. I have read that ultrasounds are safe and I have also read that they can be dangerous to an unborn baby. Ultrasounds have only been a common procedure in the last few decades and I am wondering if anyone has experience with going through pregnancy without any ultrasounds being done and why you made that decision.
