  • Some practitioners do them early on to date the pregnancy, others prefer to wait until 20 weeks for the anatomy scan... but the ACOG says that ultrasound is not to be used routinely in pregnancy at all, only when there is a problem suspected.

    They're not necessary. Just ask your doctor when they usually like to do ultrasounds :)

  • i think its around 12 weeks..im not 100% sure, i always get one before then because i spotted for 5 weeks with this baby and with my first i had some bleeding..so i have had alot of ultrasounds with my pregnancies..ask your doctor at your next appt.

  • I was 6 weeks with my daughter...they did a vaginal ultrasound....and then 21 weeks to determine sex...with my son I was 11 weeks and 19 weeks when I found out he was a boy!
