Re: At what week was your last U/S?

I had an u/s at 37 weeks with ds1 because I was suddenly measuring smaller. Turns out I had just dropped and I was just carrying him really well. They tried to estimate his size and it's so unreliable at that gestation. They suspected he'd be 10+lbs and he was 7lb 11.7oz At that 37w u/s, they said his body was measuring 39 wks and his head was measuring 42 wks....I was scared out of my mind! I wanted to go for induction RIGHT then because I was so afraid of his head size and how it might grow in 3 weeks. I *didn't* go for induction right then and he ended up being very, very average (in terms of size!).

Re: At what week was your last U/S?

i had one at 7 weeks and one at 17 only because i have a giant cyst on the vaginal canal they want to watch...but we don't want to know gender either but have managed to find a decent amount of gender neutral stuff. They can tell position of the baby by touch late in the pregnancy so there really is no need for another u/s that late. I am a bit concerned about the safety of u/ss so i won't get them unless they are medically necessary...but that's just my .02. Good luck momma!!! You are almost there. I say, let the gender be a suprise at this point!!!

Re: At what week was your last U/S?

size isn't an issue, this baby's guessed birth weight is about 7.5 to 8 pounds, so still a reasonable size in there (ds was 11 pounds at birth he was almost 5 pounds at the 32 week u/s) so this baby is a back facer so we havn't been able to accurately detect sex i'm just wanting to be prepared. i have oodles of boy stuff so we are good there although we have no boy name as of yet. i have no girl things at all left from dd but we do have a girls name picked out

she can tell that the baby is breech by touch, but is unsure if manually turning the baby is an option unless she does an u/s so it is a must at this point

Re: At what week was your last U/S?

With DS I got one at 12 weeks, 20 weeks and 38 weeks. I got one at 38 weeks because my doctor was on a kick that he was going to be a HUGE baby and they wanted to make sure he wasn't. Of course, they found out he was only about 4.5lbs at 38 weeks! I did have another scheduled right on my due date to see if he was gaining, but he was born 4 days before it, at a petite, but healthy 6lbs 6oz.

This time around Im not sure when or if I will have another U/S. The baby is breech now so I may have another to check positioning.

Re: At what week was your last U/S?

Normally, my last/only would've been at 18 weeks, which was when we found out the gender. I also had the nuchal translucency one at 12 weeks though by choice, and then after being "diagnosed" with gestational diabetes, I've had to have one every 3-4 weeks starting at 28 weeks. My last one was today (35w4d), the others were at 28 and 32. At each one of those, he confirmed that she's still a girl, including today's. So if you do want to know, they should be able to tell! At each of my recent ultrasounds, he found "the shot" quicker than the lady did at our 18 week ultrasound.

My last u/s for ds was at 37 weeks. They needed to see if he was still breech and he was. I just remembered they did one right before my c/s to make sure he was still breech that day.
