  • do you smoke?..... If so it could be to determine if the baby is growing properly.... if not, it could still be to determine if the baby is growing properly.... there is many reason, dont take this personal, i am not saying this in a mean tone but we dont know your medical history and that could have an impact on the reasonign

  • I had one done at 32 weeks. I was measuring around 40 weeks and doctor wanted to check the fluid and the baby.

  • you could always call the dr. and ask why, or ask why at your next visit if that is before the ultrasound

  • I had a high risk pregnancy for my first baby. . . She had growth deficiencies. . . they did many ultra sounds of Chris to check his growth which was normal

  • it could be to measure the baby to make sure your still measuring 32 weeks and so on....many reasons.

  • My doc told me at my first OB appt that I will be getting an u/s at 35 weeks to check for the position of the baby, the amniotic fluid level and my cervical length. I doubt its for the position of the baby because at 32 weeks they can still flip even if they are already head down so probably cervical length
