Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

When we were stationed in GA I had mine at 20 weeks and we were only suppose to have 1 (I got a 2nd w/ ds coming early) but that was the drs call. My friend had hers same hospital (or would have been if I wasnt transfered) but different dr nd they did around a 10 week 1 and than around 20 wweeks. We did not go to the base hospital (as there wasnt 1) so it was the drs (offices) call that we used

We are Air Force but I never went to the base hospital so it was just up to my Dr.'s. My 2nd pregnancy it was 19 weeks for the 1st real ultrasound, and with my other ones it was 6 weeks.

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

I had to have a few once @ 6 weeks to get a EDD, one at 10 weeks then again at 18 weeks. Now if you know your dates, and nothing is wrong normally they do it between 18-22 weeks for growth and sex determination

Tricare only pays for 1 unless it is medically necessary.

ETA I did have one more at 23 weeks because I whined about not knowing the sex of my baby, she was shy at the 18 week one LOL!

with my son it was 20wk with my daughter it was 15 but for complications. my husband is airforce. we have a hospital on base. so the norm at this base is 20wk unless there are reasons that another one is needed. i think it sort of depends on the hospital. a friend whose airforce went off base at our last base and got an ultrasound at every visit. congratulations

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

8 weeks ( LMP ) With both my second youngests..
& with my last baby i had them at :
8 weeks, 11 weeks,, 13 wks, 15 weeks, 17 weeks, 19 weeks, 22 weeks, 25 weeks, then last one was at 26 weeks right after my water broke.. ( i was high risk OB.. I got level 2 ultrasounds-they are a lot better than than regular u/s)
with my 4 y/o DD i had them at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks, 26,27,28 weeks then she was born...(same thing .. got a lot of level 2 ultrasounds..)
what is sorta neat about having so many ukltrasounds and most of them being level 2 is that we found out the gender pretty early..
at around 14 weeks!
with my first 2 kids it was civilian and had them at 7 weeks and 9 weeks..then a few more in my second trimester..
ETA : we are navy as well ad i recieved most of my prenatal /perinatal care at MAMC in fort lewis WA.

We're Marine Corps and I had my first u/s at 12 weeks. I had two more after that. One because I had a cyst on my ovary and another to find out the sex

Re: Military Mommas, when was your first U.S.?

My dh is Navy. With all 3 of my kids I had the internal at my first appointment to determine EDD and then with the youngest 2, I had one more at 20 weeks. With my oldest, there were complications, so from 12 weeks on, I had an U/S every 2 weeks. I was really bummed to not have more with the younger two, but very thankful for much easier pregnancies!
