  • Nope--I had a scheduled c-section and they did not do one for me. Mine was scheduled b/c I had a c-section with my first.

  • usually so they can see where the baby is and how they are sitting if its not an emergency csection then they would of course have time to right lol

  • I had an ultrasound at 35 weeks, but that was because I was high risk and had to have one done every month. My scheduled c-section was at 37w5d and I didn't have another one before then. I wouldn't think anything of it though if they did do one.
