Is anybody familiar with this? I can't find much online, and I don't want to call the doctor's office if I don't have to.
When I was pregnant with Will, and again this time, my doctor told me that at the 34 week mark, they want me to start coming in twice a week for ultrasounds to check for fluids. They said I am at a higher risk for fluids leaking, and therefore the baby dying. If my fluids start to leak, they will most likely take the baby out.
I just want to know the percentage of AMA women this happens to. My insurance won't cover the extra ultrasounds, and 2 per week times approx 6 weeks, well, that's going to get expensive as sh**.

I was 38 while pregnant with Lew. I did not have u/s at the end of the pregnancy like that at all. I had one at about 34 weeks to check fluid levels, but that was an added one just for me because I had low fluid issues with my first. Had that not been true, I would not have had an u/s that late at all. With DS#1 and Lew any and all u/s were covered by my insurance, though.
I was 40 and the only reason I had any ultrasounds third tri was because he has kidney issues and to check his size. Nothing extra because of my age. Twice a week seems extreme to me when a simple swab can test for leaking fluids.
