Hi all! I'm just at 6 weeks, and it's my first pregnancy. So I just wanted to ask moms who are further along or have had children before, when was your first ultrasound? My doctor said I probably wouldn't have one until 18-20 weeks. Has anyone else had to wait that long? Thanks for reading and responding!

However, I understand most other places only want the anatomy scan at 20 weeks.
With my son I only had my anatomy scan at 19/20 weeks. My midwife used the Doppler at every appointment to check heart rate, but like others said, unless you're high risk or experiencing problems there's no need for ultrasounds every week, just the anatomy scan.
