ultrasounds

How many ultrasounds did you ladies have during your pregnancy? I had one at 6 weeks to confirm pregnancy and another at 19 weeks to find out the gender. I've heard that's all some doctors do. I wanna see my baby girl again! And I don't wanna have to pay for 3d/4d ultrasound out of pocket /: what was your experience?

I've had 5, 4 through my Dr and another that my nan paid for. I'm measuring small at the moment so if I am still measuring small in 3 weeks when I go for my next appt my Midwife is going to schedule another US for me. But I am high risk. I know most people usually only get 2 US, one to date the pregnancy and a second between 18-20 weeks which is called the anomaly scan which checks that everything is as it should be, and to determine the gender if they can see

I get one every time I go! I told my doctor from the beginning I want to see her every time! So she always does one for me especially since sometimes my boyfriend can't make it to the appointments :)

I am only 20w and I have had 4 (3from the doctor) and I started going at 12w but I am getting another on the 26th and then one more at the hospital for genetics testing when I am 26w but my sister in law lost a baby to a genetic disorder so that may explain why I am having a lot.

I've had 4. One at 13 weeks to make sure she was alright since I had a double kidney infection. One at 19 weeks to find out the gender. One at 27 weeks to make sure she was still growing proper. And 32 weeks to still check her growth. I have a heart condition so they keep making sure she's growing at the right pace. I'm 35 weeks now and I think I'm done getting ultrasounds.

I had 3 but only was supposed to have 2. I had an extra because the US tech got bad pictures of her heart.

Pretty sure I'm only going to have these two then /: and my boyfriend thinks the 3d US are creepy so I can't even do that if I wanted to.

Ive had 4 so far. My next ones on the 16th of june and then every 4weeks due to being a high risk diabetic. They want to make sure my little one is the right size and not huge. Plus i dont want to have a chunker. Im small so a big baby wont do well
