  • it all depends on how 'risky' your pregnancy is. I get between 6-10 because i have a history of miscarrying, others may have only 2 or 3

  • With my 1st and 2nd I had one each. My 3rd (which was a miscarriage) I had 3 of them. With my 4th pregnancy I had 4 of them.

  • Most women have told me they've only had 1 or two as long as they have no problems. That's why a lot of people don't know what they're having until the baby is born if they aren't able to tell the gender on the first ultrasound. It probably depends a lot on your insurance and doctor. I'm 26 weeks and I've had one so far.

  • i had i think 5.. maybe 6. i kept measuring big so they brought me in more often to make sure there wasnt another baby hiding and that the amniotic fluid was okay.

  • it all depends on what kind of pregnancy you have and the doctor....normally doctors wont do ultrasounds past twenty weeks though....if you want more later in the pregnancy....some doctors will do more if the patient requests them....mine did with my daughter

  • I had 2 ... one at 9 weeks to see the development of the fetus, and one at 20 weeks to take measurements. I had a typical pregnancy, so I didn't need more than those.
