  • 1 with each of my boys, 2 with my daughter because the blood test for birth defects came back with odd results. She was perfectly healthy though.

    the boys, and my first one with my daughter were at 20 weeks.

  • I had 3. One to determine how far along I was (6 weeks), one at 20 weeks, and one the day I was in labor. My sisters only had two, as well.

  • I had a sonogram everytime I went to the doctor, cause he had 2 machines in his office. And I had 2 level 2 sonograms. I had a normal pregnancy, I wasn't high risk or anything.

  • I had two during normal visits. First was around 10 weeks and the second was around 22 weeks for both boys. I went into preterm labor with both and I had ultrsounds done at the hospital. Both time labor was stopped with drugs. When I went into the hospital to have my boys, I had ultrasounds again. So in all, I had about 4 to 5 with each pregnancy.

  • generally, you have the one at first to see how far along you are, and make sure, there's only one baby. Then, you have the 20 week and maybe one towards the end as long as everything seems to be going well. I'm lucky, though, I found out at the first visit that it was twins and have had one each time I went. But, that's to make sure they are getting the separate heart beats. But, with a singleton, you don't really have to worry about that. But, I would say if your dr isn't recommending more, you must be doing fine!
