Just wanted to know everyones opinion. My 4 year old is really into this pregnancy, I was thinking of taking him to the u/s next week. Good idea or bad?

A friend of mine took her 8 year old and 5 year old to her US at 20 weeks. Prior to that the boys were very unhappy with the pregnancy, but after seeing their new sister, they did nothing but baby their mom. I think it's a great idea to include your older child, it may make him feel even better about his new brother or sister.

I keep reading horror stories about at the u/s they find something wrong with the baby. then I would not know what to say to my son. that is my only concern... I am a bit paranoid .... had a rough start with this pregnancy and now I stress over everything.

i took my children to my sons u/s when i preggers with him and they loved it. at the time they were 4 and 6.

monica, go ahead and take him! I took my son. It is fascinating for them. And don't worry about something being wrong. Even if something was wrong, they would make sure your son wasn't in the room when they told you. Try not to worry!! Good luck!

I think that it's a great idea as long as your office allows it. Mine does not allow any children under the age of 8 in the u/s room but since you've been through this before it seems as if it is okay where you are.
