  • I had one done to find out how far along I was because I didn't know, and then one at 20 weeks. I probably should have had one later on close to delivery b/c they let me go over a week, and my son was delivered at 11lbs, 6oz, 23inches long...

  • I got one at 8 weeks because I was cramping so bad but there wasn't much to see. The next one was at 20 weeks.

  • With my first pregnancy, I had one at 12 weeks and one at 20 weeks. With my second pregnancy I only had one at 20 weeks. It depends on the doctor (and sometimes whether you're high risk or having problems).

  • I had my first at 6 weeks then at 12 weeks, at 18 weeks, at 22 weeks, at 26 weeks, at 30 weeks, at 32 weeks and I am currently in my 33rd week and will be having one this week actually tomorrow morning. And then I will have one every week until i deliver. But this is all because of my age which makes me high risk. I also have a very high volume of amniotic fluid with my pregnancies because I have 10lb. babies.
