I declined to schedule the 10 week ultrasound; my midwife told me all it was for was for dates (but I know my dates) and to hear the baby's heartbeat early. Those didn't seem like good enough reasons to me. The website for their practice also says they discourage 1st trimester travel until ultrasound establishes an intrauterine pregnancy (since clearly we're all supposed to live in fear of being that ~1% of ectopic pregnancies) but she did not mention anything about that so I think that comes from some practitioners at that site who have more of an interventional model of care. Not sure yet if I want the 20 week u/s or not.
