  • You usually only get one unless they think something is wrong with the baby.

  • most people only get one ultra sound, sometimes they will do two to check the babies growth.
    insurance companies dont pay for uneeded U.S
    maybe you'll get lucky!

  • it just depends on the dr and the patient. sometimes it's twice a few months apart other times no u/s unless there's a problem. ask your ob. congratulations!!!

  • well to be honest I got a second ultra sound today, and it wasnt as fun- the baby is SO much bigger now 30 weeks that it didnt look like a baby as much as it looked like a big ball of bones.
    I was like "wow, you would think this looks MORE like a baby than the last time"
    the ultra sound tech was like "no, there too big to get a good pic and scrunched up" I had to beg her for pics, and it really dont look like a baby anymore. I was kind of sad.
    though I did get to see him playing with his winkey and sucking his tumb! LOL

  • I was told that most places don't give another ultra sound unless you are high risk, or if they think something is wrong. The last one I had was in my like 21st week, and that was when we found out the sex, and I am due Saturday.

    Another lady who was pregnant the same time I was, was a little older, so she was more high risk..therefore she got more ultra sounds and such.

  • I only had 2 u/s ... one at 9 weeks to establish if there is a baby, and the second one at 20 weeks to do the measurements.
