Ultrasounds

I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and have been reading that many of you have had one already. I had my first prenatal visit yesterday and they said they only do one, at about 20 weeks. They may do more if there are concerns. It does not seem normal to me to have just one. Thoughts/help?

Look for another doctor. They should of done one about 8-9 weeks. To get actual dates.

My first doctor did one at every visit and I was really spoiled. When I moved and found another one, I discovered the stardard is 3. The first being at 8-9 weeks, the second at 20 and a third nearer your due date. Definately find a new doctor. Insurance covers them.

It depends on where you live I suppose. Here in the Netherlands we usually don't get an u/s until your 11th or 12th week. Unless there is anything special (if you had a m/c before, health issues, etc.) going on. Usually women have one done at 20 wks as well.

With my 1st pregnancy my doctor didn't do a ultrasound until 20 weeks.

Hi Christine, I am in the same boat as you. My doctor does one at 20 weeks and that is it. I keep reading on here how people are getting them done at 7 and 8 weeks and I was wondering if I should try to find new doctor. Where do you live?? Im in NJ. I think its time to find a new doctor!!! Good luck!!
