Last week I randomly started bleeding for 30 min. then it stopped so we went in for a u/s to make sure everything was fine. That to me was necessary.
I do think a scan at 20wk is important - not at all for gender, but to check on baby and see how things are developing. I really like for that to be the only u/s, though.
Yours was definitely necessary! And I think that's the important thing - being willing to change your mindset/decisions/plans based on the situations that arise.
