ultrasound ?

I am 23 weeks pregnant, and I had a anatomy ultrasound done three weeks ago. On my last belly check with my Dr. I asked when would I have another.ultrasound done and she said I wouldn't have one unless it was necessary like if issues would come up.  I won't have ultrasounds up until u have the every 2 weeks ones when u are almost due . Is that how it usually is?

from what i hear from a lot of ppl yes i think it depends on the dr office tho. at my dr office they try to give you an u/s every visit and if not at least every other one. i get an ultrasound every 2-3 weeks since i was 5weeks but that is bc i am high risk and for a while was getting them once a week. but like i said from what i hear from alot of ppl on here yes, i am just blessed to not have to go that long without one.

Yu might not get another one.  I have an ultrasound every week one week its bpp's and the next week is a growth scan...most ppl onlu have two. One In the beginning and an anatomy unless they suspect a possible problem later on

Well for me here, I only get one period (which I juss had and It was an anatomy) with an exception of one more before the baby Is born but If they can't find the heartbeat during one of my Appt's or somethin' goes wrong! At least, that's what they told me. =[
