Me - November 8

I am almost 15 weeks and my doctor isn't giving me an u/s til im 20-22 weeks. But I want it now what is a good way to get my doctor to give me a u/s and still having my insurance pay for it?

You should wait until the Dr, planned it. Reasoning: The u/s will measure the bones correctly and tell you if there are any deformites. Also, the s_x can be harder to tell.

I think every doctor is different, and every city is different too. I had a scan at 12 weeks, will also have one next Monday (which will be 22 weeks and 2 days) and will have another one in January. In Paris they tend to scan every 3 months. They still measured all the things, they could tell what they needed to see etc. But yeah, I cannot find out the s_x until at least 22 weeks. x

If you only get one I would definitely not rush it. I am so happy we waited until 21 weeks. Baby was moving around enough to get perfect measurements and the s_x of the baby was clear as day! Please wait, if you can. I know it is hard but you will be so grateful you did.

The u/s you get in earlier weeks are more accurate in predicting due date. That's because until about 20 weeks fetuses grow at about the same rate, but past that your baby really starts growing at it's own rate, as babies outside of the womb do. Otherwise, it's probably not a big deal to just get the one at 20 weeks.
