The more I think about not having a sonogram yet the more I get irritated you would think they would want to make sure everything is progressing well ect... plus I just want to know my baby is ok since this is my first :-( I am going to express how I feel when I go next week anyone else not gotten one?

I've had three already, but I've had some issues. With my first I got one at 8 weeks and then again at 16 weeks. I'm surprised that you are almost 12 weeks and haven't had one yet, although I do think that is also common. Depends on the practice. My friend got one at 12 weeks and then 28 weeks that was so late to find out the gender...so my Aunt did a gender scan at 18 weeks (she's a sonographer)

When are you supposed to have one?

I haven't had one yet either I go on Monday to my midwife and assume I will get one shortly there after the NT one that needs to be done before 13 weeks then I won't go again till 20 weeks. I am in Canada and this is the norm here. I would also would have liked to see sooner seeing as I had a loss in February but I still have not gotten to see anything or hear a heart beat yet. But I will soon enough I look at it this way no early u/s means they think you are fine as much as I'd like some extra peeks at what is going on in there I really don't want to get unnecessary u/s even though they are considered safe I am still in the less is more camp on that one. Hope you get to go soon when is your next check up?

I won't have one until 20 weeks. My doctor doesn't do them until then unless the mom has had previous problems/is considered high risk. It's pretty standard here to wait, in fact I don't have any friends who had there's before 20 weeks.

I go back for the heartbeat july 2nd and I think it's so dumb you would think they would want to see if the baby is developing fine and to make sure there isn't more than one plus for some of us it puts are mind at ease

With my first two pregnancies, they only did an ultrasound at 20 weeks unless there were complications. With my third, they claimed I was measuring big so they did quite a few ultrasounds. With my fourth they did one for dates and the 20 week one. This baby I have not had one yet but will get one on July 12th to check for dates. If you want one earlier than 20 weeks you should tell them you're not sure of your dates.

The did one at my OB at 9 weeks, Not sure when my next is. They just standardly do U/S's around 8-10 weeks there though. I would go bonkers if i didnt see baby until 20 weeks! Waiting until 9, i thought, was hard enough!

I would think they would get you one to confirm dates. Hopefully you will get one soon. I would go nuts. Its driving me nuts already not being able to make sure the lil one is ok.

I have my first one scheduled for this coming Monday. I wouldn't normally get one this early, but they want to confirm my dates. I told them I am sure, but I only had 4 cycles before I got pregnant and the doctor said that wasn't enough to "be sure". I'm not complaining, maybe it will help ease my mind a bit.

I could have had one at 8 weeks to confirm dates but since my boyfriend works out of town I had to wait till 11 weeks. Which I thought was a really long time. I was actually shocked that they were willing to give me one that early. I have another one booked for 20 weeks though I'm going to try and talk my doctor into letting me have one at 18 weeks since I am leaving the province for a month and don't want to wait an extra 4 weeks to find out the gender. Plus I want know that everything is fine before flying.
If I were you I would just explain to them that you would like an ultrasound. You will feel so much better after having one!

I only had one to confirm when I was due and how far along I am because I never had a cycle after my m/c. Otherwise I am sure that they would not have done one until I was getting the anatomy scan.
