First Ultrasound

Hey all! I've been wondering this forever! When has everyone had a first ultrasound? Do they always do one to at least make sure baby is where it needs to be? If you're not being followed by a RE, do they still do one?

    Most do around 9 weeks. I did one at 5 & 9 weeks. 5 week was because of past issues. Next time around I will just wait until 9.

    I will end up with one at 5-6 weeks but that's only because I'm being followed by an RE and have also had an ectopic and other early miscarriages. I've heard most people don't get one until around 9 weeks.
    6 IUI's resulting in BFN. 7th IUI was the fun one with pregnant...then not...then ectopic at 7 weeks...IVF #1 - miscarriage...IVF #2 miscarriage 5w6d...IVF #3 cancelled due to not growing embryos and pneumonia...IVF# 4 same old story...BFP then miscarriage...this is getting old...onto possibly Donor Egg or Donor Embryo

    I had my first u/s at 7 weeks, 6 days, mostly because of my previous miscarriage. Everything thankfully turned out A-ok!! If you think you're having problems or something they can do one earlier to make sure the baby's growing in the right place and has a heartbeat.

    7 weeks, but couldn't find hb, so again at 9, 12, 18, 22 and we have to get one tomorrow (29) because they keep getting incomplete readings.

    Regular practice is to do an ultrasound around 8-10 weeks gestation. Generally you will only have one sooner if you experienced a prior loss and/or conceived with the assistance of an OB or RE.
