When did you get your first ultrasound?

I go next week for my 8 week appt. and I will see the Np which she will do an internal. I din't get an ultrasound this time when I was pregnant the first time. I am so hoping I will because it will be too early to hear the baby's heartbeat and i will freak out!

  • I'll be 20weeks on the 14th so I'm going to schedule my first ultrasound then. I know A LOT of people get 8 wk u/s though. I suppose it all depends on your dr and the type of insurance you have.

  • 16 weeks and I had to beg for it and the doc had to tell the insuance that I wasn't sure when my last period was. That was the one and only ultrasound that I had.

  • for my first child I was 20 weeks and it was the only ultrasound I had, for my second I recieved an ultrasound at the first visit..I was a little over 8 weeks I believe but we had an ultrasound at every visit for her because that is how the office I went to did measurments.
