Late Ultrasound

Mrs.W. - March 12

Hi there. Im 11 weeks pregnant and had my second doctors visit today. My first one was at 7weeks. The doctor did one of those ultrasounds where they listen for the heartbeat and we heard a strong and healthy heartbeat - it was amazing!! But he said that my first picture ultrasound is not going to be in another two months! I gotta go in again in 4 weeks (at15 weeks) then they'll do the bloodwork and then again at 19weeks which is when they'll do the first ultrasound.... Isnt that rather late? I read of women on here that have ultrasounds as early as 7 weeks... Just wondering. Did anyone else have their first ultrasound this late?

The doctor I had with my first didn't do an u/s that early unless they couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler. And then the first u/s was at 20weeks to check gender and measurements. The doctor I have for this one does an u/s at 12 weeks and 20 weeks. So I think it just depends on the doctor.

One (usually at 20 wks) or two u/s (usually at 12 and 20 wks) for an entire pregnancy is completely normal. It all depends on the doctor.

with my dd i had one at 21 weeks, and this time its scheduled for 20 weeks. Its normal but every dr/ mdwife does it different.

With this one they did what they called at dating u/s just to see how far along you really are. But I won't get another one until 20 weeks. I'm 10w6d today. Some OB's are cutting out appointments they don't consider necessary. But they also used the portable u/s b/c they couldn't find the hearbeat w/ the doppler two days after I had my first u/s. I guess it just depends on your doctor.

Wow, i am only 5 weeks 2 days today and already had an u/s. I am having another one on March 26. Hope everything looks goos then too.

Thanks ladies for your answers. I guess it's normal then :) That means they base my due date only on my lmp and it might change at 20 oh well
