my doctor keeps ordering ultrasounds for me. i am going on the first for my fifth one. she said it doesnt harm the baby but i have heard that it can cause defects and cause the baby to be sterile(its a boy). can anyone help i am nervous and 38 weeks pregnant.

that, but check out a study about ultrasounds done by the mayo clinic. Just google mayo clinic and ultrasounds, it might help ease your fears a bit.

I had weekly ultrasounds starting at 30 wees due to pre-ecclampsia, but my little girl is just fine.

My friend was high risk and had weekly ultrasounds and her little girl is just fine. I think having the doctors frequently check the baby when something is wrong outweighs any risk the ultrasounds may impose.

ultrasounds are done with radio waves, not radiation.
