  • IF i can remember they tell you the sex if you want to know it and they count that they have all ten fingers and toes..they check the brain..they check to see if they have both kidneys..they check the liver and everything like that to make sure the baby is perfectly healthy!

  • They're mainly checking for developmental problems, like checking the brain, the amount of amniotic fluid, the placement of the placenta, etc.

  • I never had one with my oldest son, but with my younger two they were done at 20 weeks (my daughter) and 17 weeks (my son). They look at the major organs for proper development and do measurements of the bones to look for proper growth. And I found out the gender at each of those ultrasounds as well :-)
