  • No. I just told them I wanted another one, and they will give you one for $20. I wanted to find out my baby's sex at 20 weeks instead of having to wait.

  • No. I was honest with my midwife and asked him to send me for one. If you had a healthcarer provider who was open to listening to you and sensitive to your wants/needs you wouldnt have to lie.

  • No, but I was VERY happy that I wasn't sure about my dates.

  • No. I didn't care to have ultrasounds. I found them annoying. I had 2 with my first (a vaginal at my first appt and one at 20 weeks). Had 2 with my son (one at 24 weeks and another at 36 weeks to check his size before my c-section). With my other 2 I only had the one at around 24-26 weeks. I didn't even get pictures with the last one. Shrug. I'm not that into pregnancy, it's just a function of life to me and I can't wait for it to be over with.

  • No - I always just asked my dr and they did it. With my 3rd pregnancy, I had an ultrasound at every appointment until she finally moved and we could see if she was a boy or a girl! I try not to lie about anything and have found I can usually get what I want without having to resort to lies and deception.

  • No, I had one ultrasound with all of them after 20 weeks. Except for the middle one, I went into preterm labor and they did one on me while I was in the hospital to make sure everything was ok.

  • No but i never wanted more ultrasounds, one is enough for me and even that one i want as short as possible, it is a medical diagnostic tool not a toy.
