  • They do an ultrasound at 20 weeks to measure all of the babies parts, like the stomach, spine, legs, head, etc. They also can usually determine the sex if you want to know it. At my ultrasounds, they tech does the ultrasound first and then I go in an meet with the doctor afterwards.

  • you should be getting the ultrasound at the next appt. is your appt with the doc or with an ultrasound tech? or does your doc do the ultrasound? for mine I had to make a seperate appt with the tech

  • They might schedule an ultrasound at your 20 wk appointment. Mine got scheduled at the same time as the 20 wk appointment. I would ask when you go.

  • I got an ultrasound after my 20 week appt. (At my clinic they ultrasounds are done at another place so that means another appt.) I would think that they would do your ultrasound then because 20 weeks is the standard to check that all the organs and bones are developing normally (and to see if it's a boy or girl if you want to know.) If it is not on the same day as your appt it will probably be around the same time.

  • Yea my ultrasounds and doctor are int he same building if I have one they call me back first for the ultrasound and then I go to my room. The last time I seen my doc for the first one at 8weeks and 2days and then he decided to do one to see the baby and I walked with the tech and Had it done and back to my room. I have only had one done at 8weeks and 2days when I first found out I have also heard the heart beat and got measured at my last apt before this upcoming one. I have sugar problems as well because I had them before with my second pregnancy its confusing to me because I have had high risk pregnancy's so this is something different I use to have ultrasounds with my other two pregnancy's alot so I just don't know what to expect with this one.
