  • i could be wrong, but i think US is where you hear the heartbeat(usually can hear it by 10 weeks at earliest) and sonogram is where you see your baby on the monitor...(earliest anywhere from 6 weeks to 14 weeks for first one)

  • I'm pretty sure that an ultrasound and a sonogram are the same thing. Usually around the fifth month your dr will scedule an ultrasound. If the baby is positioned right, the dr will be able to tell you the sex.
