Oh I don't know. I had one at 8 weeks and 4 days when I was put in the hospital for a week for severe dehydration and malnurishment to check I wasn't pregnant with multiples. Then I went to get a 3d/4d one done at 20 weeks to find out gender, then at 24 weeks they offered me a free 3d/4d session so they could do training for a student, then I had a level ll ultrasound at 35 weeks because my husband's little brother was born with a bad heart defect and the doc wanted to just be sure everything checked out. So altogether I had four but only 2 were doctors orders.

With my first pregnancy I had an ultrasound at every appointment and my Dr did them all right there in his office. This pregnancy I have a new Dr and she sends me out on a referral to get mine done. I asked this question somewhere else and apparently my one ultrasound at 8 weeks, one at 13 weeks for the genetic screening, them the gender ultrasound at 18 weeks is in everyone's opinion more then normal women usually get. So to be honest I guess it just depends on the Dr and assuming all goes well and no extra ultrasounds are needed. Just ask your Dr, I am going to at my next appt.

 with my daughter i got 12. because i was having some problems.
im only 17 weeks, but so far i got 2 from the doctor, one elective, and another one in 2 weeks.

With DS, I had one to confirm at about 7 week and the anatomy scan at 21 weeks.  With DD I just has the anatomy scan at 22 weeks.  With this one, it'll probably just be the anatomy scan.
