Im currently 31 weeks along and have been reading that women have another ultrasound before they are done. I thought the 20 week one was the last. Who has had another after the 20 week?

well my doc is having me get one at 30 weeks im not in my third trimester but im almost there

It's really more normal just to have one at 20w's and sometimes one during the 1st trimester. So, if you're doc isn't having one later on I wouldn't worry. I think that it's much more the norm not to have one in the 3rd trimester then to have one.

i have had one at 20 weeks, 28 weeks and will have one next week at 37 weeks.

I had a u/s done at 19wks...I had also heard of some women getting a 2nd one in the last few wks of the pregnany. I asked my doctor at my 33wks checkup and she said that I won't be getting one because there have been no problems during my pregnancy and my baby is measuring at an average size.

doctors will sometimes do another one around 36weeks to check the weight of the baby, if they think you may have a larger baby....sometimes if woman are diagnosed w/ GD, they will do another u/s, but it is not the norm to have a second one done.. Most woman only get the one around 20 weeks unless there is a reason to do another one. Some doctors will do a second one if one of the measurements was off during the first just really depends..

Hi Cevvin. I had one at 32 weeks, but only because I was measuring substantially larger than my dates. I'm in Australia, and, certainly in the city where I live, the std practice is to have one at 12 weeks (if over 35 yrs) and then a second and last one at 20 weeks.

My last one was around week 25... I definitely would have liked to have had one in my last trimester just for rea__surance..but never did

I don't think it is abnormal to get one in the 3rd trimester.. nor normal.. I just think its something some doctors do adn some doctors don't do... I got one at 35 weeks... but my doc gives everyone an ultra sound in the third trimester to see the babys progress! Your doc just might not do it..

I'm having one tomorrow (28 1/2 weeks), but only because there's a calcium deposit in my baby's heart. Otherwise, I would've been finished at 20 weeks.

thanks for all your answers :), im still holding out hope that i will get to see my baby again before she is born, but also that she is healthy, and a normal size so i can have here naturally

I didn't have even a 20 week u/s with my oldest! With my dd I had a 20 week and one at 32 weeks, but only because she was measuring really big. With my youngest I had one at 17 weeks and that was it. Our OBGYN doesn't regularly do u/s besides the 20 week unless they suspect a problem.

i had another at 34 or 35 weeks to give an estimated weight of baby.
