  • With this pregnancy I was at 7 weeks, and my first pregnancy was at 6 weeks, but I am high risk so they did mine sooner.

  • Usually you get one done before that. I found out at 9 weeks, that I was pregnant. After I picked the doctor I was going to go to and I got my insurance all settled out, I was 12 weeks by that point and got my ultrasound done then.

  • Unless there is concern i.e multiples, bleeding, due date confirmation. Your first ultrasound will be around 20 weeks.

  • usally you get your first ultrasound to determine your due date which is usally the 1st or 2nd dr.apt that you goto..then the next one is to determine the sex of the baby which is around 19-20 weeks

  • its usually about 8 weeks, thats not right about it being at 20 weeks, because they need to use the ultrasound to determine or verify your due date, they don't just go based on your last period, they need to verify it

  • I had mine at 8 weeks and am going again next week (16-17 weeks). Have you been to the doctor yet? They'll be able to tell you when the timing will be.
