The clinic I called said I can come in anytime between 18 and 20 weeks. I picked closer to 18 :) but now I am wondering if they can get more accurate measurements, etc. if I wait til closer to 20 weeks. Opinions?
This is me, too. :) they let me choose between 18-20 and I chose 20 because I read it's easier to see in a bigger mama. And, If I wait 'til 20 weeks, then I'm "halfway" done and that works well in my crazy mind.
With my prior three, they wouldn't let us schedule it until 20 weeks because they were often having to redo them before that. I don't know what the "rules" here are yet (I find out at my next appointment in March), but I'll probably aim for closer to 20 weeks. I'd prefer to only have the one.
My OB did tell me he'd already done one on his wife who has the same due date as me (!), but he might need to re-do it because he wasn't able to get very clear measurements.
Mine will be $175, which seemed like a lot to me, until I found out my sister's was over $1000. She had some more significant issues they were exploring so they did the 3D one, but still: whoa. Sometimes living rural has its advantages, but it's not like some crazy farm contraption rigged to a video camera- LOL! My OB has a big-screen HD tv that I get to see it on while laying back. It's like a home theater experience!
I am having my anatomy u/s at 22 weeks this pregnancy but with my first PG it was with a different practice and at 18 weeks. We saw everything well enough and got good measurements. That was my only u/s that PG. This PG is twins and we've had 2 already and are having more to check on a SCH.
