I couldn't wait till 20 weeks either. I probably won't get one from my Dr until then either so I'm getting an elective at 8/9 weeks. It's like 30 dollars and it's their "little bean confirmation package" lol. I did it with DD so def doing it again. That sets me around May 4th for my first ultrasound
Omg i cried at my ultrasound....and I cried all the way home too. I was just so happy the baby was in the right place and it's little heart was beating right along! Tell them to get a good pic! I didn't get such a good one, the head got cut off!!!!
Most OBs and midwives only do a 20 week u/s for anatomy, and only do others if there are problems. That's how it was with my first two kids. This time because of my history I'm sure I'll get at least a few during the first trimester...my RE said they won't "release" me to my midwife until I've made it safely to 10w.
I think 20 weeks is SO long. A friend only had the 20 week (it was actually 22 weeks for her) and she was hoping for a girl. Nope TWIN BOYS! Can you imagine finding out at 22 weeks you were having twins!!???
