Due Dates

So my doctors office does not allow u/s until 18-20 weeks unless you are high risk (im not) or you dont know the date of you lmp. Which I already told them I do. I do however have a card Im wondering if you all think I could play. I never have regular perids, they can run anywhere from 28-37 days apart. So the 28 day due date really doesnt apply when I could be due a whole week or more later. Has anyone else ever had to get an u/s for this reason? Im just anxious to be sure my little one is ok.

Hi Ladies, im so sorry for you guys having to wait for an U/S !! i am going to a charity run hospital thats only for pregnancy and delivery and the doctor does a U/S everytime i see him whichhas been about 4 times, since week 5. and i am week 9 now and already have a photo( but not alot to see though!) lol

wow, they really do it differently in different parts of the country! I live in NY and I get an ultrasound at every visit - I've seen babe 4 times already. I can totally see your frustration and your wanting to see the baby! totally try that, it can't hurt!!!!

wow!! not until week 20? that sucks! Luckily my office always seems to do an u/s around 6-8weeks..Thats what they did for my 1st and now with my 2nd I go in on the 25th. This time around though, I have NO CLUE as to what my LMP was..who can keep track of them, when you have a 19month old to take care of! Anycase, I feel sorry for you and hope all is going well with you and the baby! But am sure the 20week u/s is much better than what you see(or barely see!) at 8weeks!
