My doc said she didn't want to do my first u/s until like18-19 weeks is that normal? I am actually going for one next week, and i will be 9 w 4 d to see how far along i am, but that was after she wanted me to wait until i was about 18 w.

that's totally normal. most women get about three the whole time...one to check the due date, one in the middle, and one in the end. they'll do more if you;re high risk, and they will do dopplers to hear the heartbeat.

Yup normal. I didn't get an ultrasound with my daughter until 22 weeks! Then I had another one at 35 weeks to see how big she was because I needed to be induced at 37 weeks. But it's completely normal to not have an early ultrasound. But I'm curious, how is it that you are going in for an ultrasound at 9 weeks 4 days if she wants to wait? Is it a different doctor that's ordering it?

i got her to order one, because i think (from temp charting) that i ovulated earlier then my 14cd, so she said she want s to see exactly how far i am.

I will only get 1 my entire pregnancy unless they cant see things like the 4 chambers of the heart or the vessels in the cord, or other complications. so be lucky that your getting one early, get lots of pictures.
