Do you all remember how many ultrasounds you had when pregnant and when? Also, if you had more than just the one mid-pregnancy ultrasound, do you know why the doctor ordered it?

I had three

First was 11 weeks. We asked for that one. We went to a local Christian organization that gives free early ultrasounds. U/S techs have to have something like 200 ultrasounds with a "licensed" U/S tech under their belts before they can go out and get a job and this place gives them a chance to do that while providing a service to the community. We of course gave them a donation (and still do) and we also sent them flowers because I lost my wedding ring there and one lady dug through the bathroom garbage to find it out of the goodness of her heart.

Then the usual one around 18-20 weeks

The last one was a couple days after my due date to determine size. Praise the Lord they did this one because that is when they discovered my fluid was low and induced me. Only to discover after Hannah was born that I had a slow leak, two infections in the placenta and Hannah had Pneumonia

I had one with my single births, around 20 weeks.

With my twins I had so many, one around 10 weeks, one around 20 weeks and then one each week for the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy.

Bev I had 3 dating/gender then one when I had food poisoning.

Morgan 1 dating/gender

Savannah I had the first one confirming
second one for dating at the dr
third when I bled
forth for her gender
fifth for size and it ended up being the day she was born.


I THINK thats all with Savannah.

Breeze, do you know why they did an ultrasound to confirm with Savannah but not with Morgan and Bev? Why didn't they just do a urine/blood test?

I was at a pregnancy clinic and they offered it so that the u/s tech got training.

I had my babies (2 of them) ten years apart. Lots of things were different for me, but one thing that wasn't were the ultrasounds. I had 2 with each child. One early on, one late enough to know sex.

Caleb was one. Jacob was two. Twins was every appointment . Like 15 or so. Had late care with Caleb. Why only one. Jacob doc and girls doc was the same and he does two for singletons and he did his two and the other doc for the girls did one everytome for growth tracking.

with Mason I had 7:
1 to confirm
1 a week or so later after some spotting
1 around 18 weeks - gender/check everything scan
1 about 25 weeks - they wanted to get a better look at a few things that they couldn't see very well at the 18 week scan.
1 about 28 weeks after a trip to L&D with contractions to check to make sure my cervix was still closed
1 at 31, because my OB just does a US in the 3rd trimester.
1 at 34 weeks because they needed to re-check his kidney

With Shay I only had 4
1 to confirm
1 at 16 weeks after contractions
1 at 22 weeks to get better views and measurements
1 at 31 weeks which was also after contractions to check my cervix, after that I went on to having regular NSTs

The reason why I got confirming ultrasounds at all was because I had 2 miscarriages before Mason. They generally do not even make first appointments until 8-10 weeks. But because of my previous miscarriages and due to those my OB puts me on progesterone supplements right away now.
