When did you have your a/s?

So the day that I have been waiting for is almost here and I get a call from the Dr's office..... She says I'm not far enough along for an a/s. I told her that the Dr told me he wanted it done at 18-20 weeks. I will be 2 days shy of 18 weeks. She said well they really want you to be 19 weeks and asked if I could re-schedule. Ugh!! I'm so annoyed right now and I told her I would call back because I already have the day off, DH has the day off, and I made other appts. DH works swing shift so I wouldn't be able to go back until middle of October probably. I love my Dr. and I probably need to just call him or his nurse because why would he say 18-20 if he wanted me to be 19, and besides that the baby has measured 4-5 days ahead on all my u/s's

Re: When did you have your a/s?

  • Bummer!  That is annoying.  Hopefully they can just keep you at your originally scheduled appointment and you won't have to rearrange things.

  • Mine was supposed to be done May 27th (19th week).  However, when some test results came back concerning in the 17th week, we had it done early (17w3d) along with an amnio.  I'd have given anything to have been able to wait until my scheduled time at 19 weeks, those two weeks waiting for results from the amnio were awful.

    FWIW, they were able to see almost everything they needed to in the 17th week.  Some things, like the heart and kidneys, were better seen at a growth scan I had later on.  If you can reschedule for your 19/20th week, I'd recommend it.  It may be a PITA, but so is worrying about your LOs heart, etc and having to get more time off from work to go again for a f/u in a couple weeks.

  • My OB says 18-19 weeks, and I was 19w2d. The only annoying thing I had with trying to schedule it was the girl insisted on using that pregnancy wheel thing, which is NOT accurate for me at all, since I didn't even O until CD 40 something. I kept having to tell her I was currently 15w, so I'll be 19 in four weeks! Gah!

  • My OB won't do them before 20 weeks. I have mine today at 20.5 weeks.


  • Interestingly, I had mine done at exactly 17w5d.  But....the reason for that is because I was in Boston and they wanted to do it before I moved back to Arkansas.  They said that although the a/s was good, they would prefer that I have another one done soon after.  I had one done in Arkansas at 24 weeks, and the baby's organs were much better developed.  Had I been in Boston, they probably would have done it at 19 weeks.

    I am sorry that the office is giving you the run-around...you should tell them, "Look, this was scheduled by your office, and I have already made the arrangements to come.  I need that appointment.  If things don't look quite right at the scan, then why don't you just schedule a follow-up scan?"

  • Mine was at 18.5 weeks. They schedule them from 18-22 and not before. I know it stinks to wait but you do want to get to see everything and not have to potentially pay for another u/s. As it is, we didn't get a profile on the little guy b/c he wouldn't cooperate and I'm not sure if insurance would even cover another u/s so I've let it slide. We got to see the heart and organs which is what I was most worried about.

    Yeah, funny thing is someone else just called me to remind me of my appt tomorrow lol. I told her about the girl that called me yesterday and I told her I wouldn't be able to re-schedule until middle of October and she told me just come in because thats when the Dr. told me to, and she said they would just schedule a follow up if they needed. I think I would rather do it that anyways. I haven't had an u/s since 10 weeks and I will gladly pay for another u/s to see LO.

  • It is frustrating they want you to reschedule - esp because you and DH already have the days off!

    Ours was at 20w3d. The practice said 18-22weeks, but one OB likes it closer to 22w. I think all the OBs at my practice rec. 20+weeks.

  • My OB said no sooner than 20 weeks because they can't really check the heart before then.  I think less than 18 weeks is WAY too early.  I technically had mine at 19w6d, but it was exactly 20w based on LMP, so that was the earliest day they would allow.

  • That's annoying that they don't do the 18 weeks that you were told.  My office schedules it during your 18th week or later if it falls around  holiday or weekend or soemthing.

    Good!  I am glad that you are going to go ahead and have it done.  I hope that they do another one for you in a few weeks, even if your DH can't come.  It's better to be certain they are getting good and accurate measurements, yes, but they are the ones who goofed on the scheduling, so you shouldn't be punished.  I hope you have a great appt tomorrow, and you better show us a pic. =)  I pray that all goes well and your baby gets a clean bill of health!
