  • Only one for most of my pregnancies, 3 for my youngest because he had a low lying placenta and they had to check it a couple times to make sure I didn't need a C-section. They usually only do the one around 20 weeks unless there is a problem.

  • If it is a normal pregnancy, you probably won't have another one. 20 weeks is usually the last one they do. Sorry. They do check the heartbeat at every appointment after that, so you can atleast hear your little one.

  • Honestly, my doc did one every visit. That's just how he runs his practice. I was lucky.

  • I had twins, so I had a ton- well over a dozen with several pics from each one. I really wanted one of the 3D ones but we couldn't afford it at the time.

  • i had 3. 1 to confirm how far along i was (which was still incorrect, 1 at 20 wks, and another a few later bc they didn't get good pics of what they wanted to see)
    i'm only having 1 next time and that'll be just to ease my husbands mind. it'll probably be at 24 wks

  • So far, I've had two. One at 8 weeks and then one at 22 weeks. I don't think I will have another unless they have a specific reason. I'm 34 weeks.

  • most people with a healthy pregnancy get one or two... one to identify how far along you are and one around 20 weeks... with this pregnancy I had one at 8 weeks to verify how far along, another at 20 weeks then another around 25 weeks because I had a low lying placenta. I will have one more on tuesday because I'm measuring almost a month small so my midwife wants to make sure that the placenta is still functioning properly.
