ultra sound question

Does anyone when when you typicaly get ultrasounds?  I had one at 7 weeks and saw a heartbeat.(early caus I had a m/c before)  I thought I was going for one at 10 weeks, but they just told me they would just  a heartbeat check, exam, and genetic screening of my blood no u/s.....then I get the U/S at 12 weeks.  Is this normal to wait from 7 weeks until 12 for a u/s.  Just curious cause I am nervous.

yes, I think that is very normal if all looked well at 7 weeks.  

I had 3 m/c last year.  I had an u/s done at 5.5 weeks and then another at 10 weeks then another at 20 weeks and that should be it.

yes it's very normal.   You're lucky if you get one at 7 weeks.   That's not routine.  In fact ultrasounds aren't routine.   You're insurance might just approve 1 as being medically necessary or high risk.

You should be in good shape as they say HB and confirmed intrauterine pregnancy.   5% chance of miscarriage at this stage.
