  • My doctors did, just to confirm a possible EDD. And believe me they don't look much like a baby this early on.

  • It depends on the doctor. Some do, some don't.

  • If they have one in the office. Some have to make an appointment at an outside source. I have had them right away though, just to establish how far along ASAP

  • It depends on the place. The office I went to for both of my children had a machine in the office but had women come back 2-3 weeks later to check growth and confirm dates (not that ultra sounds really do a good job at that) but the office I switched to hear for my gynological care does one on the first visit if you plan to have ultra sounds. There are 3 midwives in the group so they don't push ultra sounds on those who do not want them but they do offer them at the first visit.

    Some doctors don't do first trimester ultra sounds at all.

  • With all my pregnancy's I did and I was 6 weeks with all of them. You may have to request one if you want one if your doctor doesn't normally do them that early.

  • With all my pregnancies they did the first ultra sound around the 8 week mark. So I doubt it but maybe.
