How many times should a pregnant woman go to ultrasound to be sure that the baby is all right? I know that ultrasound is not really healthy but how many times is and how many times is enough to be sure your baby is not sick or anythink? I'm now in 14 week of my pregnancy, I was once on ultrasound when I was 10 weeks pregnant, everythink was ok. When should I go next time? My doc said that we will do another one in 7. Month or 8. If their will be no necessary earlier. What necessary he means?

With a healthy pregnancy, you could only get 2. That's all I got. One to confirm my pregnancy, and one at 34 weeks. So what your saying sounds right to me. The "necessary" would mean if they find anything that worries them or if any tests come back wrong, or fetal movements are down...Hope I helped Smile

I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and I had 1 on week 9 to cofirm pregnancy and one at week 14 for the doctor to play around and show us the baby again and in 2 days at week 17 and 4 days I will have a level ii ultrasound. They put me in highrisk so they just want to make sure everything is ok. I am not worried though.

Good luck to you.
