  • Ours took about 45mins, maybe an hour?

  • Ours took about an hour but baby was being stubborn so that might be longer than others.

    They have to take measurements of everything and the baby moved around a lot at ours so it took some time for her to get the images she needed. It felt like it went by pretty quickly.

  • OK GOOD TO KNOW! THANKS LADIES!

    Mine was considerably shorter than everyone elses's here  - 20 minutes.  But we don't discuss it there, the tech takes the measurements and the doctor calls later with the results, so maybe that makes the difference.

  • Mine cooperated and stayed relatively still, although he moved around a lot before the ultrasound and quite a bit after. He posed quite nicely too, so she was able to get all the measurements in under 20 minutes. It was a Level 2 ultrasound; they sent the results over to my OB and I get them on June 30.

  • I'd also say about an hour but I thought mine was just longer because LO was being stubborn and not showing her lower spine.

  • My OB does all ultrasounds herself and takes all the measurements. It took her <20 minutes to get all the measurements.

  • Wow - I'm surprised to see how many people had theirs take an hour long. I have mine next Thursday and the scan is scheduled for 3:45, then I have my doc appointment (in another office of the building) at 4. Hopefully they can get what they need that quickly!

  • Mine's estimated to take about an hour.

    I'm cool with that though.  I'm fascinated by ultrasounds and this time Daddy is going.  Smile

    Hey...that's shorter than your OB appts were running you! Wink

    OP, I have yet to have mine, but I was told that my Level 2 will take about an hour. The Level 1 I had with my DD took about 45 minutes from the time I was taken to the back.

  • Mine took at least an hour, but she was not cooperating. We have to go back on Tuesday.

  • Mine is next week but it's scheduled for one hour.  30 minutes for each baby.  The tech said it usually takes about 20 minutes per baby plus a 20 minute conversation with the MFM afterwards.
