My appointment went well thank goodness! Doctor found baby's HB with the doppler immediately! 165bpm.

Anyway. I will not be getting any more ultrasounds until 20 weeks.

HOW AM I GOING TO WAIT UNTIL 20 WEEKS? That's about 9 weeks away. Like from the time I ovulated to today. Gosh that is a long time.

Is anyone else going to wait it out until 20 weeks? I'm going to start getting super antsy once you ladies start getting earlier gender scans!

I don't think I will.be getting another one until 20 weeks, but I'm not sure. That's talking with a friend who is using the same doc.

I was surprised I got one at 8 weeks, I was expecting the usual 20 week one. But since I had conceived while on bcp, she wanted to double check my dates. Though I still might have another u/s before 20. My last son was born with a heart defect, so I'll have 1-2 (not sure how many) fetal echo's to check on this baby.

My next u/s is at 20 weeks. Haven't decided if I'm going to pay for an early one yet or not.

I can't remember what my ultrasound schedule is. I got one at 7 weeks after going to the ER, but looking at the info the hospital gave me it looks like there wouldn't be one scheduled until at least the 16-20 week appointment, and maybe not even then? But I don't think that's totally accurate. Honestly, though, as long as everything is going well, it doesn't matter to me when I get another one. It's not like getting an ultrasound will change what's going on in there!

I waited with DD but then got switched to high risk at 26 weeks. So, starting in that office this time I believe I will get them every 4 weeks. My first one is tomorrow!

I haven't even had an appt yet, let alone an u/s. My first appt is next Friday, I'll be going on 14 weeks then.

The only u/s I will get will be the 20 week scan.

The 20 week ultrasound will be the one and only ultrasound we get. And we will not find out the sex of the baby then.

I would hate to wait until the 20 week scan. I had one around 6 weeks due to bleeding and they found a tear behind the placenta and another one a few weeks later at my dr office. I am getting the NT scan next week but then I will wait until 20 weeks. I dont really want to even count the first 2 because I wasnt allowed to see anything on the first one and the 2nd one my dr office machine is horrible and I could not even tell you what she was looking at lol.

I won't be getting any at all until 20 weeks, I think. DH is considering a 3D package that would have a gender determination at 16 but I'm not sure yet.

In my other two pregnancies I only had one at 7-8 weeks and then not again until the anatomy scan at 20 weeks. I was SO surprised to get one at my 10 week appt this time. OH actually I got one at my 10 week appt with my son only because he was being difficult and we could;t find the HB on the doppler.I also always get one around 36-37 weeks to check position.

I did not do the NT scan with my first two pregnancies..I might do it this time just to have an extra u/s since this will be our last baby! The results won't change anything.

with DD I only got one ultrasound which was the gender scan. After that, we would just hear her heart beat through the doppler everytime I had an appointment.

I was actually surprised with this pregnancy that I got an u/s at 8 weeks. The tech explained that my office changed up their policy and now require an 8 week scan before your ob appointment just to confirm dates and make sure everything is ok.
