I work at a Veterinary Hospital and we have a brand new ultrasound machine..... I can't lie, I've taken a couple of peaks at my little bean...... but I was wondering if anyone knows of any increased risks?

Some links on the Natural Childbirth Board that I read while preggo with Nola:

http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f3...l#post27797547 (Some articles on ultrasound safety)

A link that was posted online today:
Watch Japanese scientists levitate things using nothing but soundwaves - The Week


Now, there's risks with everything, just gotta weigh the pros and cons, do your research and make a decision you're comfortable with.

I'm not fond of medical modern technology unless absolutely necessary, therefor I only do the 20 week scan to check for physical anomalies (not because I'd terminate or anything [I was asked that today, w.t.f??? lol] but because if surgery is necessary in utero or if a c/s is necessary or something ya know?).

Anyway, I'm not posting these b/c I'm trying to scare anyone or be like "No, don't get multiple ultrasounds!", I just knew where the links were and you asked so I provided....


BTW, totally loved the title of this thread, I cracked up, it sounded like such a sneaky thing

My cousin was super high risk, and had over a dozen ultrasounds during her pregnancy. I believe (Dont quote me, this was 6 years ago) she said her doc said they'd formerly thought too many ultrasounds weren't good, but there was no data to support that ultrasonic waves did any harm to a fetus...

But like I said, that was second hand, 6 years ago. Maybe float the question by your doc at the next visit without letting them know you have had sneak peeks?

A friend works in L&D and I know those nurses sneak peeks all the time at work, so I wouldn't think they' do that if it was harmful.

Now I gotta read all those links, because my nurse brain cannot resist.... THANKS Jackie (Just kidding, I love reading medical type stuffs )

Thank you ladies. I was just reading up on it myself and found a bunch of conflicting info... I'm definitely going to ask my doctor at the next visit. It's just so cool to see "him"

My last pregnancy was high risk and I had u/s's every two weeks from 18-30wks, and then weekly from 31-37wks...my high risk OB didn't seem concerned - we all have to use out best judgement, but for me...I'm not concerned about u/s's. Lord help me if I had access to a machine=)

Yeah if I had access to an u/s machine, omg! That is so awesome. Exposure to ultrasound isn't something I choose to worry about. I'd say enjoy sneaking a few peeks at your little one here and there.
