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 am 39 years old. Luckily I have had no problems. I got the standard 10 week dating u/s, 12 week NT u/s, and 20 week anatomy. I get another at 32 to check for IGR. If all goes well I just get NST at 36-39 weeks. I go to a regular doc and a perinatologist due to age.

I'm lurking from the April board. Is it a biophysical profile? They score baby on practice breathing and 2 different movements as well as fluid levels. I had them done with my daughter due to decreased fetal movement and might end up having them done this time too just due to age although everything has looked great so we haven't decided yet if we will. I am just shy of 40 and was 37 with my daughter
