And remember that Doppler is actually worse than the imaging u/s.
I've decided to go with the regular 2 u/s's my OB does - one will be at 8 weeks (actually for me it's 7 weeks... the u/s will firm up the dates though... lol), and the other will be 20 weeks. I've read all the research, and I agree that it's not good to get 10 u/s's for no medical reason during pregnancy, but I don't think 2 is such a big deal, and they *can* spot things that might be important to know. So for me, I think the benefits outweigh the risks. But I won't be getting an extra 4D ultrasound just to get pictures of my baby.
