Why no ultrasound? My sil is a sonographer and fil is a perinatologist and they both agree that is is just sound waves and not harmful in the least.
Around here, you see the mw 1/month until 28 weeks, then 2/month until 36, then 1/week. Maybe you are just remembering the end?
This one's total fees are $1800.
But I'm responsible for buying/renting a birthing tub if I want one, which I do.
There's just a lot of controversy surrounding whether ultrasounds are completely 100% safe for the baby, and I'm trying to do things as natural as possible this time. I'm not high-risk or anything, so I figure there's no need
for one.....but without one this whole thing seems like just a dream.....sigh.
I know I started going more frequently at the end - I remember specifically going in once a week to check for dilation
: from 36 weeks to 40 weeks....but for some reason I thought the visits prior to that were every two weeks. Guess not.
