All my ultrasounds were done in a hospital and I was also allowed to bring my DH as well as my mom with me. We could watch the entire thing on a television on the wall directly in front of us. The tech was awesome about telling us what she was measuring and why. She also paused several times to answer my "first-time mommy" questions. :-)

Re: Was your DH or s/o allowed in during 20 week ultrasound?

I think it's crazy - I have NEVER heard that policy. It's not uncommon for them to limit the number of people you have in there to 1-2, but even then I don't think I've ever heard of them telling you WHO is allowed to be there. Mine didn't want children under 5 in the room, and even though I didn't like it because I wanted my 2yo dd to be there, I could understand that since she would have probably gotten antsy towards the end.

Re: Was your DH or s/o allowed in during 20 week ultrasound?

Any procedure involving YOU, is your procedure to dictate. How rude to not include the man who created the child into the ultrasound. All my anatomy scans have been medical of course, but FUN and Shawn was allowed in every time. Thats a crock of crap. Im in the medical field and its bull. I find that lately the ultrasound "field" if you will, it kind of snooty. I had bad experiences with sonographers before. Like they were doing me a favor or something...

I didn't read all of the replies, but you are TOTALLY NOT crazy...I had S/O, 2 teen girls, and my 3 year old present at my biophysical u/s...they brought in an extra chair and we all squeezed in...if someone tells you that your DH cannot be present with you at ANY TIME *unless it's emergent* they are nuts.

My husband and 3.5 year old both came to mine last week.
When I had mine with my son four years ago in a different town, my husband was allowed to come too.

Where I went for the 20 week U/S, they said only me for the 1st 1/2, then they can come in for the 2nd half. It was a pain.

I've never heard of anywhere around here not allowing a DH or another adult to attend with the momma-to-be. There is a policy at our hospital that small children are not allowed, but I think that's more of a safety issue.
