  • Absolutely keep the appointment. Ultrasounds are proven safe. It isn't like xrays. It is sound waves. Unless your Dr. instructs you otherwise keep the appt. As a side not a 'low' placenta often corrects itself as the pregnancy progresses. As long as it isn't over the cervix there is a good chance.

  • have as many as they will give you. It gives you a chance to look and see and know that your baby is alright. They are harmless

  • GO! I would think after an emergency one you would want to see your little bean again. Its safe, and reassuring.
