usually insurance will only pay for one unless there is something wrong with the baby.
There are also many people that say that too many ultrasounds can damage a growing fetus. But at this time, I don't believe there is any proof of that EITHER way. not proving them safe, not proving them unsafe.
I think that is why most Doctor's prefer to do fewer of them (and then there is the money part too) But to err on the side of caution is always better.

I also had issues. Excessive amniotic fluid and my baby hasbirth defects. They had to see if she was growing and how severe the defects were/ They also had to check my fluid levels and such.
I had a level 2 every week from 20 weeks on. My other two pregnancies they only did one ultrasound for my entire pregnancy. If there is a reason for them to do more, they will let you know.
