Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Ultrasounds- sneaky, sneaky.

So I will start off with how I feel about ultrasounds. I think they are completely safe for the baby. I also will also say that I have NEVER done this nor plan to, just something fun I thought we could all confess too. So any moms out there that just really didn't want to wait until their next ultrasound, tell their doctor something like "I just don't feel right" to get a "Check up ultrasound"? The women in my life actually have done this and some laugh about how easy it was. I want to see my baby all the time, so I completely get it!

Ok yes. I did lol I was 11 weeks and was impatient. I hadn't heard the heart beat blah blah so I made an excuse to go in just for reassurance so I knew my baby was Alive and well!! I'm currently 30 weeks

I totally agree with you on ultrasounds being very safe! My last pregnancy, I was very high-risk! I had at least 15 ultrasounds thru my entire pregnancy! I even asked my OB/GYN if me having a lot of ultrasounds was safe for my baby. She assured me that there is NO WAY she would allow me to have so many of them if there was any research proving there is a risk to the unborn baby! One of my ultrasounds lasted 45 minutes!! They were doing measurements, and a very highly-trained ultrasound tech came in and finished up the ultrasound. She is trained in telling whether or not your baby has downs. She told me she was 100% confident that my DD did NOT have downs! She told me my DD had none of the characteristics for downs. She was 100% RIGHT!  No I never told the Dr. a lie to get them to do more ultrasounds.

No, I thought about it so we could find out the gender at the ER before my husband deployed because the regular ultrasound lady was a bitch and wouldnt tell us, but I didnt. We drove 3 hours to a place and paid for one, we got a CD too. :)

That's awesome! I wish we had choices like that. I have great insurance so no doctor bills for me, so paying $20 would be nothing. Where are you from? What state?
