Ultrasound HELP!!!

Update!! So I AM pregnant!!!! and will be getting a full first prenatal exam but I still want to get an ultrasound when I'm down in VA so I really appreciate any help!!!

So, I think I might be pregnant and I was thinking back remembering a thread someone had posted where they said that there was a place near them where they could just go to get an ultrasound. Like it wasn't an OBGYN or a midwife just a place where you could get an ultrasound done. I'm wondering because right now I'm up in MA and I'll have a midwife up here if I am pregnant BUT my SO is currently down in VA for a couple months because of family issues and work. I really want to go down and surprise him by going and getting an ultrasound done but that would be after I already had a real appointment up here so I wouldn't need another kwim? Sooo does anyone know what those places are called near them or if there are any in VA??
Thanks so much
Kelsey

Re: Ultrasound HELP!!!

look up elective ultrasound and your local city on google and you should find a place.

Re: Ultrasound HELP!!!

Thanks so much for the advice-- I didn't find one but there are planned parenthoods close to there so I guess that might work.

Re: Ultrasound HELP!!!

Ultrasound is not used for diagnosing pregnancy. Ultrasound usually can't even detect a baby with a heartbeat until after 6 weeks.

Thanks for the advice, I do know that I only want to get an ultrasound when I'm down in VA visiting him so that he can see his baby I will have already had a first prenatal visit (checkup, blood tests, everything)
