My first scheduled U/S is not until I'm 20 weeks, which is 8 weeks away! I'm already getting impatient. But, here's the story and the question:

I work at a Children's Hospital in Medical Imaging, and after talking to one of the Radiologists there and telling her about my impatience, she says to me, when I want one, come see her when she on rotation in U/S and she'll "fix my up", lol. But, she said she would recommend waiting 2 weeks or so cause then it will be totally clear, like arm is an arm, leg is a leg...etc. But she said whenever I want.... (I totally love some work perks!)

Now I'm not sure if I should be patient for 2 weeks, or give in (she's in rotation in U/S on Monday). Should I wait?

Maybe it's just me, but I'd do it!! But then again, I am slowly realizing I am just as addicted to u/s's as I was with peeing on sticks!! I guess I have an addictive personality! LOL

Good luck with whatever decision you make. But it can't hurt - you will still be able to tell it's a baby - and see the heartbeat!! But again, that's just me!

It would be very tempting to get one now. Will she only give you one 'freebie'?

lol...they're all freebies at work! I just don't want to take advantage and keep asking for them. I've heard the heartbeat with Doppler at my first app't, but just to have a picture to keep me going for the next 8 weeks lol...

Well, if it were me...I wouldn't be able to wait and I would want one Monday. If you get one Monday will you be able to hold out again until you're 20 weeks?

That's great that she's willing to do it. I'd wait though so you'll be able to see things better.

to just get a picture I would do it. But of course keep in mind that its not a diagnostic U/S so if there was a problem they may not pick it up, or they couldn't or shouldn't say anything.
