When will I get my second Ultrasound?

I have an apt. on Sept 28th with my OBGYN I will be 20weeks and 1day when I go back. I called and asked if I was having one and the lady said I more than likely would but she wasnt shure because, it said I was down for a Regular apt. She said they usally dont put what it is for down and couldnt find out for me.
I was gonna ask my doctor but I hade went to the lab and then I didnt see him nomore after that but, the nurses kept saying I should be getting one.
I am highly confused and dont know if your suppose to drink water or if it matters where I will be 20wks and 1day. My sister inlaw said I should be getting one she hade the same doctor and he did one on her at 20weeks as well for an anotomy scan she said. I was hoping you all could help me out.
Thank you very much:)

  • you do not need to drink water for the 20 week ultrasound :)

    Well drink water, but not to fill your bladder for the scan.

  • I had one at 21 weeks, but had to schedule different appt. And I HAD to have my bladder filled with atleast 64 oz of fluid.

  • Ya I am confused quit a bit. I have had one miscarriage and I have had two high risk pregnancies before this one. My second Lil girl I got gestational diabetes so with this one I am having sugar problems as well but with this one I have been able to control them when I first found out they had me coming to the doctor every week pretty much. I was able to keep my sugar kinda down so I haven't had to go as much know I go every month know. With my girls I had ultrasounds all the time so with this one its just confusing me to death and my doctor acts like he is always in a hurry with this pregnancy and its so hard for him to even take to secs to tell me whats going on. To be honest I go in every month and I don't even know what I am going in to see him about. I don't understand why the front desk couldn't just find out whether I was having one or not. This pregnancy is so different from my other two.
