  • I was suppose to only receive two. The first at the 8 week point and the second between week 20 to 23. Some problems popped up a couple weeks before I was due so they had me receive another one at 38 weeks.

  • I had one at 8 weeks to verify..another at 18weeks for gender and im scheduled to have another in two weeks..im 32 weeks now so ill be 34 by then..they need to do measurments. Usually they give you 3 but all doctors are diffrent and it all depends on your insurance and pregnancy.

  • many providers only do one around 10-20 weeks. some do 0, some do 2 or 3. personally i think they are unnecessary so i'm surprised they are done routinely! but i did get one around 15 weeks, then one around 40 weeks when my midwife thought there might be 2 babies in there. lol. there was just 1

  • at the anatomy scan. With this baby, I will have scans up until delivery (had problems last pregnancy and baby died). So far I'm 16 weeks and have had 6! I have another next week.

  • I got one at 8 weeks to confirm due date, one at 22 weeks for anatomy and sex, and then one when I was in labor to make sure head down.

  • fourisplenty, we do the "gender" next week. You are lucky, no where around here (even the ones YOU PAY for will try gender that early. I have already called lol. Infact, they do them at 18 weeks, but I finally talked the manager down to week 17 (next week) lol. I h ave heard of somepeople going that early and if they cannot see the sex, then they can come back for another free gender read.

  • I had tons with my daughter. My prior pregnancy, I went into preterm labor at 22 weeks and my son died. So with my daughter, I had one at 7 weeks, another at 10 weeks and then from 15-35 weeks, I had one every week (cervical measurements and 17p injections).
