When you go in only for a due date ultra sound do they generally give you copies of the pics of the baby or do they not give you them until your first trimester ultrasound?

I only had one ultrasound at 20 weeks I got those pics, now for the friends I have currently pregnant they seem to have pics starting at the first one. If they see the blip of the baby you get pics,

 I got copies every time I had an ultrasound (3,7,10,20, and 39 weeks), I changed doctors after 7 weeks because my GYNO didn't do OB anymore so that's why so many.  Usually the techs know you're excited and they'll print a few extras for you.

I got pictures from both. Ask beforehand, and I'm sure the ultrasound tech would give you a couple.

Ok. I wasn't sure if they would if you asked or not. I was given conflicted answers as I was given conflicted answers. My dads bc is coming up before my first trimester us will be given but my due date us is soon. I wanted to give him a copy in a frame as one of his gifts to tell him, but one person told me they NEVER give you the copies that early, and that they generally refuse but then another told me that they always give u copies every us including due date so I was super confused..

The olny time they did not give me copies was when I was having a miscarriage. They did not let me see, and then made me wait in the waiting room for an hour to talk to the doctor who then told me that they were not sure I would miscarry or not and that I had to come back in ten days.  The next time I went, they did not give me a copy but showed me the picture of the deteriorated fetus. :0(

Thanks everyone :) I'll be sure to make sure and ask :) Im really excited and thought it'd be a great way to tell my dad for his birthday but was nervous. It was almost like I insulted the one person who told me they never do for dd us. She made me feel really stupid asking her :\

I am so sorry about your loss :( That's a horrible thing to go through.
