With my 2nd and 3rd son it was 8 and 10 weeks into pregnancy. Some doctors may wait longer? But I thought they do them early on

It'll depend on what country you're from because many have different standards. In Canada if you're doing the genetic pre-screening (for downs and other problems), you'd get one at 12 weeks. If you choose not to do that test though you wouldn't necessarily get an ultrasound until 20 weeks. In the US they get more ultrasounds -- then again, they have to pay for them too, so I'm not going to complain. :)
