I'm just wondering when your o.b will send you for your first ultra sound ?

They will do a <14 week scan (this is a scan done before 14weeks....which is usually to determine pregnancy and due date) then you will have another that is between 18-20 weeks..gender is usually detected at this time if that is the route you go...This is an anatomy scan. Then if your doctor offers a 3d/4d scan (which is usually done to check for deformation and other genetics disorders) this is usually preformed around 30 weeks.

This ultrasound guideline is for normal pregnancy....If you are high risk (which your doctor will discuss this with you and tell you exactly what puts you high risk) you will have them more often and at doctors preferences!

I had my first at 7 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, 20 weeks and one at 31 weeks. I might get one more.  I'm not high risk.

I love my midwife. She loves to see the babies as much as we do and she offers an ultrasound pretty much once a month throughout. I know they aren't medically necessary that often, but it is so magical to see your baby!

So far, I had one for due date at 8 weeks, first tri down syndrome screening at 12 weeks, and I'll have my gender scan at 17 weeks.
